EYRE CHALLENGES RIVAL TO MAKE UP MIND

Republican gubernatorial candidate Richard Eyre challenged rival Republican Mike Leavitt to make up his mind whether or not he agrees with President Bush and the Republican National Platform on educational choice allowing parents to choose between public, private and religious schools.

"Full educational choice through vouchers was a key theme during the whole convention," said Eyre. "Speaker after speaker emphasized that a key difference between Republicans and Democrats is that our platform wants parents to have vouchers to allow them to choose their own schools."Eyre said Leavitt has favored educational choice but only among public schools.
