Women's leader calls on Reagan not to run again
San Antonio, Texas
The chairwoman of the National Women's Political Caucus, a Republican, urged President Reagan not to run for reelection. Although the multipartisan group has refused to endorse a presidential candidate since it was formed in 1971, Kathy Wilson said the ''gender gap'' might prompt an endorsement in 1984. She said at the organization's convention that Reagan could ''bridge this gender gap and win the respect of American women'' by endorsing the Equal Rights Amendment and abortion, and approving legislation to help women gain economic equality.
