Reagan's top 1980 adviser gets ball rolling for '84
Lyn Nofziger, President Reagan's chief political adviser in 1980, is confident Mr. Reagan will run again. He invited 20 former Reagan aides to a preliminary organizing meeting for the Reagan campaign. The White House disavows any part in the meeting.
According to Monitor correspondent Godfrey Sperling Jr., Mr. Nofziger's move is strictly a volunteer operation. There is speculation that behind the meeting is an effort by GOP conservatives to get their philosophy firmly lodged in the possible Reagan reelection campaign.
