Ashcroft

NPR's Brian Naylor reports on the efforts being launched by liberal groups opposed to the nomination of Senator John Ashcroft as attorney general. Ashcroft is a strong opponent of abortion rights and helped defeat the nomination last year of Ronnie White, an African-American, as a federal judge from Missouri -- and thus feminist and black organizations are mounting a campaign to defeat Ashcroft's nomination.
