FOR FLINT'S DONALD RIEGLE, deciding to leave the GOP
was "like waking up in the morning in the service and not being
able to eat any more Spam-it was just too much." Riegle
believes President Nixon is responsible for a systematic move-
ment to liquidate liberals and moderates in the Republican Party.
Regle and Reid:
GOP drop-outs

By CLAY RICHARDS
WASHINGTON (UPI) - Reps.
Ogden Reid of New York and
Donald Riegle of Flint, Michigan
are members of a small club of
House to e m b e r s who would
rather switch than fight.
A year ago Republean Reid
crossed the aisle and became a
Democrat. Republican Riegle fol-
lowed him a month ago.
BOTH REID and Riegle claim
they are only the "tip of the ice-
berg" of a national movement
fostered by President Nixon to
drive moderates and liberals out
of the Republican party.
Both were lifelong Republicans,
but broke with Nixon over Viet-
nam almost as soon as he came
to office. Their disenchantment
continued thro'gh such issues as
defense spending, Supreme Court
nominations, cuts in domestic
programs, press criticism and
finally, in Riegle's case, the
Watergate bugging incident.
"I think the game is over in
the Republican party for the mod-
erates," Riegle told UPI re-
cently. "Our move is part of a
political realignment that is hap-
pening much more frequently at
the grass roots level-among the
voters."
AT THE SAME time there is
a reverse movement, both con-
tend, that attracts conservative
Democrats such as former Texas
Gov. John Connally to the Re-
publican Party, a switch Con-
nally made on May 2 claiming4
that "the Democratic Party has
moved farther to the left now
than at any time in my lifetime."
Like Connally with the Demo-
crats, Reid and Riegle argue that
the Republican Party moved
away from them, headed to the
right.
Both say that they were "push-
ed" out of the GOP by Nixon's
philosophical domination of the
Republican Party.
"IT WAS LIKE waking up in

the morning in the service and
not being able to eat any more
Spam-it was just too much,'
Reid said describing his deci-
sion to quit the GOP because he
could not support Nixon for re-
election.
"The White House is running
this party like a so-itl club,"
Riegle said. "Iiheral Renbicans
feel that Nixon's the one who's
systematically liquidating t h e
GOP.
life in the Democratic party,
after several terms as Reptoli-
cans, is a" new joy for Reid and
Riegle.
REID QUICKLY has become
active, and led the recent Demo-
cratic fight to head off olans to
cut $1 billion in HEW social
service programs.
"My potential influence in the
Rentblican party was almost
nil," Riegle said. "My potential
-or any member's-is so much
greater as a Democrat.
"I see the greatest difference
in our caucuses. In Republican
caucuses, when you spoke no one
was listening,. then we were
handed the party - the White
Ho'tse-line."
BOTH MEN said the conserva-
tive domination of the GOP will
not end when Nixon leaves the
White House and that it will take
another 10 years for the party to
"swing around."
"I've got to do something for
my constituents now because
their problems are now, they're
not 10 years down the road,"
Riegle said.
