ABC’s George Stephanopoulos this morning: “He’s hanging by a thread. He’s fighting very, very hard. He said he will not re-sign, and most Republicans feel that forcing him out now would cause chaos and make the problem worse. But with these new stories that congress Mark Foley’s attraction to young pages had been known for a long time, I think the chances that Speaker Hastert will return next year are almost zero. I don’t think his caucus will return him as Speaker.”

Reynolds convinced Foley to run for reelection.
