   New Braunfels Herald-Zeitung (Newspaper) - May 21, 1985, New Braunfels, Texas                                4 New Braunfels May Loeffler Will he or wont he run pinions HwraldZcitung Dave General Manager Robert Editor Robert Johnson Loeffler sure acts like a candidate Tom Loeffler sounds more and more like a gubernatorial candidate these In in the wake of last weeks Id be more surprised if he didnt run for governor than if he Last Loeffler hired Richard McBride to help him test the gubernatorial McBride engineered Republican Phil Gramms successful drive for the Senate last One does not hire a topnotch political strategist like McBride and then decide not to Theres potential political damage aplenty if you stick your toe in the then pull it out and This is too hot for So who has been Comal Countys congressman since defeating Nelson Wolff in looks like he might very well give up a promising career in Washington to come back to From what I many Texas Republicans are aghast over this Controlling Austin is but if they had their Republicans everywhere would rather control Theyve won four of the last five presidential but Republican presidents have had their programs thwarted by a Democraticcontrolled But with the problems the national Democratic party is and with the population shift to the Sun Republicans could control the House after redistricting following the 1990 Texas will certainly pick up some and theyll likely be Republican Thats why Loeffler move is so at least on the He looks like hes giving up a chance to be Speaker of the which he said last year was his ultimate political As chief deputy Loeffler is the thirdranking GOP in the behind Minority Leader Bob Michel and Whip Trent If the Republicans gain control of the Loeffler could at least move up a notch to Whip if Michel becomes Speaker and Lott becomes Majority And Lott has made noises about running for Senate in should veteran Democrat John Stennis ever If that Loeffler could move up to Majority Loefflers only and he represents a district that might re elect him It did just that for Democrat who served 30 years in the Hes young enough to wait for Michel or whoever to vacate the Speakers Associated Press carried a report last week that family matters had a hand in Loefflers decision to in vestigate the governors Loefflers aides downplay but admit it does figure in the I think it figures in more than anybody will Loeffler has three a a kindergartener and a During the school his family lives outside of Washington In the the Loefflers move back to their ranch in Its not a gypsy but its not the most And with Loefflers busy he probably has to schedule time just to be with his thats not a situation he wants to live with while waiting to move up the House Loeffler seems to be acting like a Hes hired He has a campaign Hes been making ap pearances around the His press aide says he feels Texas has a leadership vacuum in He says hell make his decision in late Unless something 1 drastic happens between now and look for that decision to be roll the presses on the Loeffler For Governor in 86 bumper BUT IS Your representatives Mark White Governors Office Room 200

Leader Bob Dole announced that the White House had agreed to a budget package that included certain provisions as to rural electrification REA interest rates would be raised to equal the Treasurys cost of borrowing plus 1 and VB REA loan programs gradually would be phased out over the next eight On April 26 Dole surrendered to the National Rural Electric Cooperative He wrote South Dakotas James Abdnor that the proposed increase in the rate of interest has been The assumption that budget savings could be reached by phasing out REA loan programs has been So much for Last week it transpired

rural electrification The justification simply does not Yet such is the presumed political clout of the coops that an agreement of April 5 unravels three weeks It beggars relief that in a time of when the administration is charged with causing poverty for the old folks and malnutrition in the that the Justice Department could persist in this idiotic study of dirty Every department of government I
