Campaign-finance reports filed Wednesday show that anti-tax forces collected more than 1,400 small donations of $50 or more. Campaign leader Russ Walker said he also collected several checks of more than $50,000 from wealthy business owners.

Statement on the death of Robert Bartley

Washington, DC, December 10, 2003— I was deeply saddened to hear of the death of Robert Bartley, my good friend and comrade-in-arms for more than 30 years on the political battlefield of ideas. To think that just last week, I was writing Bob to congratulate him for being awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom, the nation’s highest civilian award, which was a fitting bookend to a life and career dedicated to freedom, democratic capitalism and supply-side economics.
