 Why Bill Gates loves Sen. Slade Gorton
In a close race in Washington state, Slade Gorton, the aging GOP incumbent known as the senator for Microsoft, is facing off against Maria Cantwell, the glamorous young high-tech challenger from RealNetworks.
By comparison, Gorton has been much tougher in his criticism of what he calls "the Clinton-Gore attack on Microsoft." And Gorton, a senior senator, has far more clout than Cantwell could hope to have in D.C. Microsoft has donated more than $100,000 to Gorton's campaign and less than $10,000 to Cantwell's.
Gorton also suggested that he has managed to swing the Republican Party away from the anti-Microsoft path blazed by Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), chair of the powerful Senate Judiciary Committee.
