Bush May Drop Simon
The fate of Republican Bill Simon’s troubled campaign for governor in California and President Bush’s hopes to capture the state in 2004 could be decided next week when a new private poll is released, according to a published report Friday.
The Washington Times reported that the Simon campaign has authorized the survey, which will be paid for by the Republican National Committee.
“The president will have access to the poll by the first of next week and will know whether Simon’s candidacy is still viable,” a source close to the White House and the Simon campaign told the Times. “If not, I expect Bush to walk after Labor Day.”
