Another Jewish Senator
with impeccable credentials
in our community, Frank
Lautenberg, is seeking a se-
cond term in New Jersey.
Lautenberg, former national
chairman of the United
Jewish Appeal, is facing
almost a unique challenger —
Pete Dawkins, Dawkins'
resume is almost too good to
be true since he can claim to
have been a soldier (general),
scholar (Ph.D., Rhodes
Scholar) and athlete
(Reisman football trophy win-
ner). Despite having never
held any elected office and be-
ing a very recent resident of
New Jersey, Dawkins is
mounting a serious effort to
unseat Lautenberg.
Lautenberg, like Metzen-
baum and Moynihan, has
been a down-the-line sup-
porter of all issues affecting
Israel and his reelection is a
high priority.
Not all Jewish Senators,
however, have been as consis-
tent in their support. Chic
Hecht, conservative
Republican of Nevada, who
will be seeking reelection for
the first time next year, has
been somewhat of a disap-
pointment to the pro-Israel
community, most notably for
having cast the deciding vote
in June of 1986 permitting a
significant missile sale to
Saudi Arabia. His opposition
on the Senate floor to ratifica-
tion of the Genocide Treaty
(which he later did vote for)
and his two votes against per-
mitting Orthodox Jews in the
military to wear skullcaps,
was also criticized in some
quarters. Hecht's reelection
prospects are rated as the
poorest of all incumbent
senators running next year.

One of the closest Senate
races that is shaping up will
be in Minnesota pitting in-
cumbent Republican David
Durenberger, a reliable and
valuable friend, against
"Skip" Humphrey, the son of
the late Hubert Humphrey.
While Humphrey, the state
attorney general, is expected
to be supportive on issues of
concern, Durenberger, who
was elected in 1978, has
already demonstrated his
firm commitment to main-
taining Israel's security as be-
ing in the best interests of the
United States.
Finally, an opportunity ex-
ists in Rhode Island to elect
the current lieutenant gover-
nor, Richard Licht, who will
be opposing incumbent John
Chafee, a less than ardent
supporter to say the least.
Licht, whose late uncle was
governor of Rhode Island, has
been a phenomenon in that
state's politics.
