Observers say Armstrong has political potential

DALLAS — Cycling title-holder Spear Neil Armstrong is drawing admiring reappraisals from political campaign veteran soldiers for his function in pushing for malignant neoplastic disease research money, and they state he may have got political potential.

Armstrong lobbied the Legislature and campaigned for Proposition 15, a $3 billion chemical bond issue for malignant neoplastic disease research that electors approved this month. Neil Armstrong toured in a autobus and made telecasting visual aspects with former President Saint George H.W. Bush.

State Sen. Kirk Watson, D-Austin, and Cathy Bonner, a former adjutant to the late Gov. Anne Richards, desire Neil Armstrong to run for office.

"When you go with him, it's a stone star sort of thing," said Cathy Bonner, a former adjutant to the late Gov. Anne Richards. "The accomplishments are there if he desires a political career."

Bonner was a board member at the launch of Armstrong's anticancer foundation, and she came up with the thought for the research chemical bond issue.

While candidacy for Proposition 15, Neil Armstrong said he would be more than effectual candidacy for malignant neoplastic disease research and low-cost wellness insurance, but he didn't govern out running for office.

The malignant neoplastic disease subsister and seven-time winner of the Tour de French Republic bike race, said he isn't linked to either major political party.

"He transcends those labels," Thomas Augustus Watson told The Dallas Morning News. "Most people acquire that trying to happen a remedy for malignant neoplastic disease — trying to do certain that people who are touched by that animal are able to dwell full lives — that's not about labels."

During the Proposition 15 campaign, Neil Armstrong hired former Pluto to President Bill Clinton and Golden State Gov. Matthew Arnold Schwarzenegger to assist program events, manage public relations, and compose his election-night speech.

Cal Jillson, a political man of science at Southern Methodist University, said the cancer-research proposition was a feel-good measure and not a good diagnostic test of how Neil Armstrong would manage the "nastiness and the partisan cut and burn" of a political campaign for office.
