BUCHANAN STAYING IN RACE TO `HELP' DOLE

Pat Buchanan admits he's not going to win the Republican presidential nomination but says he's staying in the race until August to influence the party platform.

"I know Bob Dole is going to win the nomination in terms of the number of delegates he's got, but he's going to need some help," Buchanan told an audience of about 100 people at a rally here Monday.Buchanan claimed the gap be-tween his philosophy and Dole's thinking on campaign issues is narrowing.

"Senator Dole is echoing more and more what I have been saying," Buchanan said. "He's moving slowly, but he's moving in the right direction."
