And in Michigan, Debbie
K. Schlussel is running for
the state assembly.
Schlussel, a conservative
Republican, was the second
youngest delegate to last
year's Republican National
Convention.

This burst of electoral ac-
tivity by current and former

AIPACers comes on top of
the group's network of
former employees now serv-
ing in key Capitol Hill staff
positions. The state races
take on particular impor-
tance in view of reappor-
tionment in 1992, when
state legislators will redraw
congressional districts based
on the 1990 census.

Exon Asks Arab Leaders
To Reject U.N. Bill

Sen. James J. Exon, D-
Neb., is a man who knows
how to get the attention of
the pro-Israel community.
During a recent swing
through California, Exon
decided to add his two cents

James J. Exon:
No responses.

to the renewal of interest in
the United Nations 1975
"Zionism as Racism" resolu-
tion.
In letters to 15 ambas-
sadors of Middle Eastern
countries, Exon urged the
diplomats to pressure their

governments to vote for a
repeal of the resolution in
the interests of "building a
more trustful basis on which
a more meaningful dialogue
can be built."
The letter, sent to ambas-
sadors from Tunisia, the
United Arab Emirates,
Yemen, Syria, Saudi Arabia,
Oman, Qatar, Morocco,
Lebanon, Kuwait, Jordan,
Iraq, Egypt, Bahrain and
Algeria, did not
underestimate the political
problems posed by a repeal
effort.
"Such a resolution will re-
quire nations to exhibit
greater courage and flexibil-
ity in their foreign policies,"
Exon wrote. "Many relative-
ly small steps will have to be
taken."
So far, Exon's office
reports no replies to the
missive. Congress and ad-
ministration official are
beginning a new push to re-
verse the U.N. resolution,
which many see as a major
obstacle in the Middle East
peace process. Vice Presi-
dent Dan Quayle recently
made the repeal of the Zioni-
sm as Racism resolution a
top item on his agenda.

clusion of data on crimes

Dole's decision brings the
number of co-sponsors to 58.
More importantly, as Senate
minority leader, Dole's
signature has more clout
than those of most of his col-
leagues.
An untold part of the hate
crimes story has been the
role of Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-
Utah. Despite his conser-
vative orientation, Hatch
has played a key role in fin-
ding co-sponsors for the bill.

Hate Crimes Bill
Gets Dole's Backing

The Hate Crimes Statistics
Bill, which mandates the
federal collection of
statistics on crimes based on
the victims' race, religion or
ethnicity, received another
big boost last week when
Sen. Robert Dole, R-Kan.,
signed on as a co-sponsor.
Promoters of the bill have
been working furiously to
get the 60 signatures that
would make it immune to
crippling amendments by
Sen. Jesse Helms, R-N.C.,
who objects to the bill's in-
