He is the only man who can give the Republican Party a much needed victory. Eisenhower did not plan to run at first after his heart attack. He is a conscientious man and puts his country's interest first. Another news focuses on a point that needs to be made for a long time but that always gets crowded out by something else. That is the continuing scandal of the open sale of firearms all over the United States.
