CINCINNATI (AP) - The National
Women's Political Caucus is being
courted at its convention by presiden-
tial hopefuls, and the organization's
chairwoman said yesterday that can-
didates should realize "our support
does not come easily"
"For perhaps the first time in
history, a conference of political
women is being courted by quite a few
candidates who are seeking the
nomination of both of the parties,"
Chairwoman Mildred Jeffrey said at a
news conference as the three-day an-
nual meeting opened with some 2,000
delegates in attendance.
"THE RECOGNITION may have
come slowly," Jeffrey said, "but finally
it is here - that the women's vote in
1980 is going to be a critical factor in Organized
presidential politics. Italian-Am-
