The new Republican majority in the US Senate wants the world to know what a great job its doing -at taxpayers' expense. With $415,000 in public funds for staff salaries, the Senate Republican Conference has launched a public relations blitz about members' good deeds and opinions. The money is being used to shower editors and broadcasters around the country with announcements, speeches, and recorded messages.

Additional public sums are being used for self-promotion: printing, telephones, and free mailing privileges -all legal as long as it's not specific campaign activity.

"PR" for the Democrats is handledm by their senatoral campaign committeem which is fueled by campaign contributions.m
