appear on the fall ballot. In fact, the
maverick Republican needs votes in the
August primary in order to qualify for
ballot status in November.
Engler said the Bush campaign will
launch a last-minute education drive
keying on Anderson's local delegate
candidates. The message will be a vote

Reagan," she said. "It takes away

"The law is silent on dealing with a
third party candidate who's actively
campaigning. The law does not provide

candidate but has publicly withdrawn
from Republican nomination."
He said he hopes the Anderson cam-,
naign will join the suit.
