Labor Secretary Raymond J. Donovan, a heavy hitter as a baseball strike negotiator, may take a swing at political office next. As Ronald Reagan's fund-raiser in New Jersey during the 1980 presidential campaign, Donovan made important political connections throughout his home state. "He got a taste of campaigning and liked it," a state Republican leader said. Although Donovan has said he is not looking to bid for the GOP Senate nomination now, he doesn't rule it out either.
A seat could become vacant this year if New Jersey Democrat Harrison Williams , convicted of bribery, conspiracy, and other charges May 1, is expelled by the Senate.m
