Abstract
When Dick Thornburgh resigned as Attorney General of the United States in early August 1991 only three months remained before Election Day. His opponent, Harris Wofford, had been appointed interim senator by Pennsylvania Governor Casey after the tragic death of U.S. Senator John Heinz. Thornburgh's announcement speech touched upon his ability to effectively represent Pennsylvania's interests in Washington. The Wofford campaign focused almost exclusively on the issue of health-care reform. Even with a successful gubernatorial record to remind voters of, Thornburgh's messages were subsumed in larger national issues and Wofford handily won, his election seen as a wake-up call to Washington. The extent of voter discontent was seen in President Bush's subsequent defeat in the 1992 presidential election. The Thornburgh campaign files include extensive research on all issues, media ads (both transcripts and online videos), debate preparation and transcripts. The files are in the following sections: Speeches; News Releases; Campaign in Progress; Questionnaires; Schedules and Events; Candidate Thornburgh's Files; Ginny Thornburgh Files; Issue Research; Wofford Opposition Research; News Clippings; Ephemera; and Kirkpatrick & Lockhart (K&L) Files. Digital reproductions of portions of the collection are available online.

Series  XIV. Campaign for U.S. Senate, 1991 

Scope and Contents note

Having resigned as Attorney General of the United States, and with less than three months before Election Day, planning for the campaign for U.S. Senate moved quickly. Staff was assembled, a media team was selected, and Evans Rose once again agreed to chair the fund-raising effort. That effort went well and President Bush appeared on Thornburgh's behalf at two events.

The immediate goal was to touch political bases in Pennsylvania, knowing at the outset that there would be very little opportunity to put together a grassroots organization in such a short time. Running against a lesser known candidate in Harris Wofford, the two-month time frame was seen as a potential advantage. However, the campaign would need to depend heavily on the Republican organization to provide local level support and activity.

Thornburgh's announcement speech touched upon all the themes to be emphasized during the campaign. One crucial paragraph, however, referring to "the corridors of power," was turned into a negative perception as supporting the status quo, rather than enabling Thornburgh to effectively represent Pennsylvania's interests in Washington as he had intended. This was but the beginning of a successful, and damaging media strategy by Wofford's chief campaign consultant, James Carville, who had "hammered Bill Scranton viciously in the 1986 gubernatorial campaign" (Evidence draft, p. 846).

The central message of the Wofford campaign was stated in a Thornburgh-Wofford debate on September 6. "Early in [the] exchange, Senator Wofford displayed a pocket copy of the constitution and first raised the issue at which he would hammer for the rest of the campaign: 'If the constitution guarantees criminals the right to a lawyer, shouldn't it guarantee working Americans their right to a doctor as well?' Thereafter, most of his public message was focused almost exclusively on the issue of health-care reform, paying heed to the colorful words of James Carville: 'Reporters are like children in a school cafeteria. If you want them to eat spinach, don't put anything else on their plates' " (Evidence draft, p. 847). Although Thornburgh had spotted the health care issue as significant while still in Washington, even with good research and a serious proposal addressing the quality of care for all Americans, by the time it was presented it was effectively "too late and too little" (Evidence draft, p. 847).

Although the Thornburgh campaign had a successful gubernatorial record to remind voters of, and Governor Casey's economic policies had eaten up the surplus and even the Rainy Day Fund left by Thornburgh, by the time of the election "voters were seen to vote against the candidate seen as most qualified and who would most effectively bring federal dollars to the state, namely Dick Thornburgh ... Post-mortem analysis characterized the election as a 'time for a change' election ... and by mid-October over 70% of the state's voters said the country was headed in the wrong direction. Thus, whatever message we sought to convey about this election was subsumed in larger national issues on the minds of the voters. Wofford was to characterize his effort from the outset as one designed to 'send a wake-up call to Washington'" (Evidence draft, p. 848).

However, a valiant, committed Thornburgh campaign is well documented here. The schedules, the events, the extensive research on all issues thoughtfully and realistically presented, the constant campaign appearances by Thornburgh and his remarkable wife, Ginny, the speeches and news releases, the media ads, debate preparation and transcripts, and the successful fund-raising are all included. Also, there are the daily news clippings depicting the day to day progress of the campaign, as well as some campaign blunders, the increasingly evident lack of familiarity of campaign press staff with the state, and what appeared even to supporters and friends to be an inability of the campaign staff to even put the best foot forward. One Philadelphia Inquirer reporter, Kit Seelye, "credited Wofford with being 'guided by the more formidable campaign handlers, noting that I wasn't 'always well-served by my staff' ... and put the ultimate question as: 'Can an uncertain candidate [Wofford] with a sure-footed campaign overcome a sure-footed candidate [Thornburgh] with an uncertain campaign?' Her response? 'Stay tuned.'" (Evidence draft, p. 855).

Ultimately, and ominously, the editorial endorsements, usually a source of strong Thornburgh support in previous campaigns, did an about-face. The Harrisburg Patriot, for example, concluded in its Sunday, October 27, editorial: "In the end, the decision really comes down to this: If you think the country is pretty much on the right course, Thornburgh is your man. If you think the nation has to address a number of serious domestic issues soon or face further economic and social deterioration, Wofford deserves your vote." All the major newspapers that had endorsed Thornburgh in his gubernatorial campaigns now went against him, and "the remaining steam did seem to go out of our effort" (Evidence draft, p. 859).

Although by Election Day, November 5, the Thornburghs had felt the election slipping away, no one was prepared for the magnitude of the reversal, a 55% to 45% margin. In his election night remarks Thornburgh stated: "So I come before you this evening at a time of reversal, to be sure, but sustained by pride and fulfillment in having had the marvelous opportunities I have had over the past 25 years. I say reversal, and not defeat, because reversals are counted in the numbers; defeat can come only in the soul, and my soul's alive and kicking tonight!"

"The effect of the election outcome was electrifying nationally ... Few put it as succinctly as Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer ('One way to view the Wofford victory is that if you campaign in depressed times and promise to pay everybody's doctor bills, you are likely to win.') ... The post election analysis prepared for [pollster] Bob Teeter found an astonishing 24% of those voting for Wofford 'feel that Thornburgh is more experienced and qualified to be U.S. Senator.' So much for the argument that one can swim effectively against the kind of tide that was developing in 1991 and which broke in full force during the 1992 presidential election ... Wofford, of course, was unable to fulfill his extravagant promises of free health care ... and was soundly defeated when he sought reelection" (Evidence draft, p. 862).

The newspaper endorsements, campaign brochures, campaign ads (both transcripts and online videos), election results and election analyses are all included here. In addition, a final blow related to campaign debt, a case against Thornburgh resulting in his having to pay $350,000 with personal funds, is also documented here. This followed three years of litigation and surprisingly "established for the first time the legal obligation of a candidate, as distinguished from his or her campaign committee, for unpaid campaign bills" ( Evidence, p. 314).

The files are presented in the following sections: Speeches; News Releases; Campaign in Progress; Questionnaires; Schedules and Events; Candidate Thornburgh's Files; Ginny Thornburgh Files; Issue Research; Wofford Opposition Research; News Clippings, Ephemera; and Kirkpatrick & Lockhart (K & L) Files.

Subseries  3. Campaign in Progress 

Scope and Contents note

Among the scores of material generated during any campaign for political office, there are those core files that really can be called "the campaign" files, here referred to as "campaign in progress." These include such items as correspondence, media appearances and advertisements, financial information, and scheduling, etc. They are the foundation upon which a campaign proceeds up to and including election day, and essentially track its progress. A court case challenging the procedures for filling the Senate vacancy delayed the onset of Thornburgh's campaign. Within a week after the court decision on August 6th, Thornburgh submitted his resignation as Attorney General, and the campaign was off and running. Researchers will be interested in the online videos available here of campaign ads and Thornburgh's concession speech on election night, November 5, 1991.

The "Campaign in Progress" files are organized in the ten following sections: 1) Campaign actions and issues, including staff files, general campaign files and endorsements; 2) Media, including transcripts of the debates between Thornburgh and Harris Wofford, press kits, mailings sent by campaign staff to editorial writers, and other coverage by newsletters and bulletins; 3) Campaign issue statements, released by the Thornburgh campaign, arranged chronologically by date; 4) Opposition research regarding Harris Wofford's record and campaign issues; 5) Campaign briefing binders, documenting Thornburgh's and Wofford's positions on issues, campaign strategies, and other research; 6) Finances, including receipts and expenditure reports, campaign contributions, and FEC fundraising reports; 7) Pennsylvania county briefing materials, including general information and history for each, arranged alphabetically by county name; 8) Campaign correspondence, including two separate groups of materials: general correspondence to and from Thornburgh (arranged alphabetically by sender's last name) and post-election condolence letters and responses (also arranged alphabetically by sender's last name); 9) Election results and post-election analyses, including post-election coverage and reports; 10) Articles and news clippings, including one section of clippings used for research on comparative positives and negatives of Dick Thornburgh, Harris Wofford, and Robert P. Casey (including his gubernatorial officials William Keisling and Donald Mazziotti).

Subseries  4. Questionnaires 

Scope and Contents note

Before an election, it is common for newspapers and varying other organizations to request from candidates either responses to questionnaires or specific position statements. The questions asked reflect the group's interests in some way and/or are designed to present views of the candidates to the voting public. The answers that the candidates provide may lead to campaign endorsements, but the information almost always is shared with the organization's members or the newspaper's readers.

The questionnaires are a group of requests from organizations to Dick Thornburgh and, in most cases, his subsequent responses are included. They are arranged alphabetically by organization or publication name.

Subseries  6. Candidate Thornburgh's Files 

Scope and Contents note

During the 1991 Campaign for Senate, Thornburgh kept, as for all other campaigns and offices he held, a personal collection of materials known here as " Candidate Thornburgh's files." These are the working files kept close at hand for, in this case, the candidate's ready use and reference. These files of convenience and contain materials that are, in many cases, a condensed version of other campaign matters, and many of which have annotations and notes by Thornburgh.

"Candidate Thornburgh's files" are organized as follows: 1) "The Campaign," a general section of material containing "core" campaign materials, including speeches (and notes), schedules, media materials, debate preparation, polling data, and others, all arranged roughly by the type of material; 2) Fundraising materials and various finance reports; 3) Issue research, including specialty steel, health care reform, "Dick Thornburgh's Agenda for the 90s," and research on opponent Harris Wofford; 4) Clippings, including the Senate race, Pennsylvania, and post-election clippings (and notes).

Subseries  8. Issue Research 

Scope and Contents note

During the campaign, the daunting job of research fell solely to Harold Miller, who had served as a Director, Office of Policy Development, while Thornburgh was Governor. Since Thornburgh was running for office in a state which he had left only four years previously with a 72% approval rating, a major campaign strategy related to his notable past accomplishments. Harold Miller's familiarity with Thornburgh's gubernatorial record well equipped him for the task.

In addition to information about Thornburgh's past record, the 1991 campaign issue files also include some "administrative" campaign files, such as those related to media contacts and Thornburgh's ongoing campaign positions. It should be noted, too, that Miller also provided opposition research on Harris Wofford, Thornburgh's opponent, and answered the questionnaires, most of which are available in a separate section by that name. Due to Miller's unique organization of his detailed and extensive files, researchers should note that the best approach to using them is to search on a topic of interest. Important information may be overlooked if one simply browses this valuable group of materials.

The issue research files are organized as follows: 1) Thornburgh's pre-gubernatorial record, research and documentation, which includes information on achievements and initiatives when Thornburgh served as U.S. Attorney, 1969-1975; 2) Research on Pennsylvania issues, including Thornburgh's gubernatorial record, which includes a large amount of material on issues relating to budget and taxes, education, arts, economic development, cost cutting, housing, etc; 3) Research on federal issues and Thornburgh's Attorney General record, including the Bank of Credit Commerce International (BCCI) case, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), and Savings and Loan (S and L) scandals; 4) Campaign research, including five sections of material entitled: administrative materials, media, Thornburgh's campaign positions, endorsements, and miscellaneous. Together they document the major efforts of the campaign, including volunteers, commercials and advertisements, and endorsements; 5) Research on Governor Casey and his gubernatorial record, which includes Casey's campaign and years as governor of Pennsylvania, his administrative goals and priorities. This was relevant information since Wofford had been a member of Casey's cabinet; 6) Issue files, including research material that is generally separate from those specific categories mentioned above; 7) Campaign controversies; and 8) Campaign clippings regarding the Senate race.

Subseries  9. Oppositions Research, Harris Wofford 

Scope and Contents note

Thornburgh's opponent, Senator Harris Wofford, previously had served under Pennsylvania Governor Robert Casey as Secretary of Labor and Industry (L & I) from 1987-1991. Then, after U.S. Senator John Heinz (PA) died in May 1991, Governor Casey appointed Wofford to fill Heinz' seat, until a special election could be held to elect a new Pennsylvania Senator. Wofford had also been an aide in the Kennedy administration and was the former president of Pennsylvania's Bryn Mawr College. Thornburgh was not impressed with Governor Casey's choice of the 65-year-old Secretary as U.S. Senate candidate, saying, "I knew Wofford slightly and regarded him as a classic 1960s liberal; he had a distinguished record in the civil rights area but was hardly a powerhouse candidate for the 1990s. Media reaction to the appointment was similar" ( Evidence, p.300).

Harold Miller, the primary researcher for the campaign, was responsible for providing information and research about Wofford, his record as president of Bryn Mawr, as secretary in the Casey Administration and as interim U.S. Senator. Harold Miller's other issue research will be found in the "Issue research" materials in this campaign.

The Opposition research materials are organized as follows: 1) Wofford's record, research on his life in public service, as president of Bryn Mawr College, Pennsylvania Labor and Industry Secretary, and U.S. Senator; 2) Wofford's positions on issues, as used in his campaign; 3) "The Campaign," core group of Wofford campaign planning materials, including finances, advertisements, debates, and endorsements; 4) Clippings, from Wofford's years under Governor Casey up and including this election.

Scope and Contents note

The news clippings here are extensive, despite the short period of the campaign, August 1991-November 1991. Here the researcher will find articles from several newsgathering sources making up three sections: daily clippings about the election including prospectively (April 1991-November), Republican Rumbles (April 1991-March 1992), and AM/PM clippings (from the Department of Justice, August-November). While the time period is brief, these articles will provide researchers with complete documentation of the daily ups and downs and issues of the campaign. All three sections are arranged chronologically.

Subseries  12. Kirkpatrick and Lockhart (K & L) 

Scope and Contents note

After Thornburgh resigned as Attorney General to run for the U.S. Senate seat, he rejoined Kirkpatrick & Lockhart, as he had done in the past when not holding public service positions. Thus the files contain some campaign related materials, from August-November 1991, but also event, trip and correspondence files from following the election. Of note is the fact that having lost the election, Thornburgh naturally was expecting to remain with the law firm. However, as with his career in the past, he was not expecting the call which came from President Bush, on February 3, 1992, stating "I'm not sure if this is something you would be interested in, but we need some help at the United Nations" ( Evidence, p. 316).

The files are primarily correspondence, event, and schedule related. They include both the campaign, and the post election period, prior to Thornburgh's subsequent naming as Under-Secretary-General of the United Nations, in February.

Of note are the files from the Rome Vatican-sponsored conference on drug and alcohol abuse. Experts from around the world attended and the trip gave Ginny Thornburgh the opportunity to start developing the agenda for the November 1992 disability conference. Also of particular interest are the files from Thornburgh's debate before the distinguished Oxford Union Society, entitled "This House Believes that British Citizens Need a Bill of Rights."
