Trent Lott finds support in Bishop

 

 

December 13, 2002

Albany-- Second District Congressman Sanford Bishop says he is not calling for Senator Lott to step down.

Bishop says Lott's statement was regrettable, but he hopes the controversy will end soon. "That we can put it behind us and try to work for our common hopes, our common aspirations. In a way that will bring us and keep us together as a very diverse nation."

Congressman Bishop said he hopes more time will be spent on the economy than Senator Lott when they return to Washington in January.
