This afternoon I had the opportunity to speak with John Anderson via telephone from his home in Florida. Between 1961 and 1981, Mr. Anderson served ten terms as U.S. Representative to Congress from the 16th District of Illinois. He served on the House Rules Committee and for a decade was Chairman of the House Republican Conference. He received 6 million votes as an Independent candidate in 1980 and has served as chair of the Center for Voting and Democracy since 1996. He is also currently a law professor at Nova Southeastern University.
