Although Pat Buchanan’s Presidential bid has essentially failed, he isn’t pulling out of the race just yet and some of his die-hard supporters are still hopeful that he’ll be able to have a serious impact on the 1996 election, at lest on the GOP Platform. With his America First and anti-federal government rhetoric, few are surprised to hear that Buchanan has received support from second amendment fundamentalists, including members of militias. Pacifica reporter Phillip Babich recently spoke with citizens who back Buchanan at a whistle stop in Pinole, California. Ridgeway and Ensign put the Oklahoma bombing in the context of election year politics.
