Election ’02 Flash Social Security


Contrary to what you may have heard, very few Republicans repudiated private accounts on the campaign trail–only around 5 of them. The two candidates private-account supporters were most concerned about–Toomey and Dole, in order–have both won. Chris Chocola, a personal-account supporter in Indiana, won his race. Sununu won in a race where his support of personal accounts was a major issue. As for the Republicans who ran from private accounts, at least two of them–Forrester and Soaries in New Jersey–have lost (in contrast to Garrett, an account supporter who won).
