States that two veteran Republican senators, Richard Lugar of Indiana and Larry Pressler of South Dakota, are mulling over whether to seek the GOP presidential nomination in 1996. If either senator were to run, he would be rated the darkest of dark horses in a field that probably will include such well-known names as Bob Dole, Jack Kemp and Dick Cheney.
