AP (via CBS News):
Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist says if Republican candidates want to succeed on Election Day, they should turn their focus away from the Iraq war.
“The challenge is to get Americans to focus on pocketbook issues, and not on the Iraq and terror issue,” Frist said in an interview with the Concord Monitor on Tuesday.
Frist suggested that Republicans remind voters of subjects like tax cuts and lower gas prices, the result, he said, of the energy bill passed by Congress last year.
“These are all things the media has not covered,” Frist said. “People don’t say, ‘This Congress passed tax cuts.’ But that means something to every American.”
