It will also seek monetary damages.

Strange bedfellows: GOP aids Nader in Oregon

BY BRAD CAIN

Two conservative groups phoned people around Oregon last week, urging them to attend Ralph Nader’s convention Saturday in hopes of putting Nader’s name on Oregon’s presidential ballot. The groups make no bones about their goal: drawing votes away from Democrat John Kerry and helping President Bush win Oregon in November. “We disagree with Ralph Nader’s politics, but we’d love to see him make the ballot,” said Russ Walker of Citizens for a Sound Economy, a group best known for its opposition to tax increases.

Democrats urge Nader to renounce groups

BY BRAD CAIN

Democratic heavy-hitters including Howard Dean are turning up the pressure on Ralph Nader, urging him to renounce the Republican-leaning groups that have been working to boost attendance at Nader's weekend convention. Nader will make his second attempt Saturday to bring 1,000 people together in a Portland high school to sign petitions to put him on Oregon's presidential ballot. An earlier attempt in April drew only 751 people.

Watchdog group criticizes mayor pro tem's trip

A watchdog group is criticizing a decision by a Wilmington city councilwoman and another official to take a 15-hundred dollar trip to Barbados on Friday. Mayor Pro Tem Laura Padgett is headed for the town of Bridgetown to sign a sister city charter. Joining her is Don Bergstrom, chairman of the Sister City Commission. Also, two professors and nearly two dozen students from U-N-C-Wilmington will spend a month in Barbados at their own expense to study the country's health, transportation system and other issues.

Tax cut advocates step into anti-Saif campaign

BY CHARLES E. BEGGS

A group best known in Oregon for its anti-tax campaigns is helping with the ballot initiative effort to abolish Saif Corp., the state-owned workers' compensation insurer. Citizens for Sound Economy has a credo of smaller government as well as lower taxes, and Oregon director Russ Walker said Monday that fits well with the drive to get the state out of the insurance business.

Failed February tax hike returns as election issue

BY CHARLES E. BEGGS

SALEM -- To many, the proposed tax increase that failed in February is but a memory. But it's going to be used in the GOP's campaign to keep Democrats from winning a majority in the state Senate in November. Republicans and Democrats have a 15-15 tie in the Senate. The GOP has to defend 11 Senate seats in November to six for the Democrats -- and five of the incumbent GOP senators aren't running again. That seems to give Democrats the best odds -- but they'll face the state's leading anti-tax group in some campaigns.

GOP Senate candidates debate

KENOSHA, Wis. - Four Republicans seeking to unseat Democratic Sen. Russ Feingold in November's election tried to distinguish themselves from each other in Thursday's forum. Russ Darrow, Robert Gerald Lorge, Tim Michels and state Sen. Bob Welch answered questions from an audience of about 50 people at a forum sponsored by Citizens for a Sound Economy. Lorge, a Bear Creek attorney, said the United States is in a "crisis mode" and involved in three wars: the war on terrorism, an undeclared trade war and a "culture war."
