Washington, DC, 1982 December 7. On his Senate letterhead to W. Ernst
Minor, Council on Environmental Quality, Washington, DC. In full:
"Many thanks for your thoughtful message about my selection as Chairman
of the National Republican Senatorial Committee. I am sober but excited about
the challenges to be met throughout the next two years if we are to fulfill the
Committee's goal of preserving a Republican majority. I hope that you will never
hesitate to call and share with us the full benefit of your insights. Thanks
again for your commitment to a stronger Republican party and for taking the time
to write. Sincerely". Rhodes scholar Richard Green "Dick" Lugar (born in
1932) was Mayor of Indianapolis, Indiana from 1968-1976, and he has
represented Indiana as a Republican in the U.S. Senate since 1977,
winning his 2006 re-election bid with 87% of the vote. Twice Chairman of the
Committee on Foreign Relations (1985-1987 and 2003-2007), Lugar sought
the Republican Presidential nomination in 1996. In 2006, "Time" magazine
named him as one of "America's 10 Best Senators". The goal Lugar states
here was met under his chairmanship of the Senate campaign committee.
Republicans, who had gained a Senate (but not a House) majority in the 1980
election, retained it through 1986. W. Ernst "Ernie" Minor was a
Republican activist who held posts in the Nixon and Reagan administrations.
