At the same time, however, neilher Ziegler nor Clark Mc- Gregor, chairman of the re- election effort, who read a sim- ilar statement for television cameras, would explicitly deny or discuss in any way the spe- cific content of the allegations. Still a third response came from, Robert J. Doyle, the sena tor from Kansas who heads the Republican national commit- tee.
