Transcript Bob Krueger, Representative (D-New Braunfels) lost in his bid for a seat in the U.S. Senate by a slim margin to the incumbent John Tower, who took 49.9percent of the votes to Krueger's 49.3 percent. Krueger, who is 43 years old, unmarried, and is considered a conservative, managed a slight margin over Tower from the Mexican- American vote. He was educated in Oxford and had twice won a seat as the 21st Congressional District Representative. Krueger had voted for the Labor Reform Ac t but against picketing and other union issues. He was on campus Wednesday, October 18, to address the Third Annual Symposium on Air Pollution in the Continuing Education Center. He said he had worked on the House's Full Commerce Committee John Tower, 53, U.S. Senator, claimed 49.9 percent of the 2.3 million voters who turned out for the November 1978 elections to win re-election to the seat he took over in 1961 for the newly elected Vice President Lyndon B. Johnson. This is Tower's fourth consecutive term to the Senate and his closest win ever. Tower spoke on campus Wednesday, October 18, and said he saw inflation and international policy as two major issues facing the United States. Tower, the ranking Republican on the Armed Services Committee, said military appropriations are vital and an adequate defense parameter should be maintained. Tower also said he disapproved of Apartheid in South Africa and the United States should act as broker to bring about fair representation. He said he wanted to maintain a friendly attitude toward the Iranian government, and that there should be no interference with domestic policy. Tower said he supported the right of each state to determine its own laws on abortion; he did not support abortion paid by the government except in cases of rape, incest or to maintain the health of the mother. The first republican to win a state-wide election in Texas since the Reconstruction Era, Tower is a Houston born college professor. 93
