Republicans Tout Terror Fight, Silent on Stem Cells

February 4, 2006 - Posted at 2:10 p.m. CST

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) _ Republican leaders are stressing the

fight against terror and the war in Iraq. They are touting the

economy, renewable energy sources and ethics reforms.

But one issue not prominently discussed at the Republicans'

annual Lincoln Days convention this weekend in Kansas City is

embryonic stem cell research.

None of the party's elected officials have brought up the topic,

which is likely to appear on Missouri's statewide ballot this

November.

Also on the ballot will be Republican Senator Jim Talent, who

has not yet taken a position on the stem cell initiative. Talent

says he expects voters will be casting their Senate ballot based on

a number of issues.

Congressman Kenny Hulshof urged Republicans not to let the stem

cell issue divide the party.
