! From Associated Press reports
: WASHINGTON President
elect George Bush on Thursday
named New Hampshire Gov. John
' Sununu as White House chief of staff
and tapped wily campaign strategist
Lee Atwater as chairman of the
Republican National Committee.
Bush's selection of Sununu as his
top White House adviser prompted
the resignation, effective in January,
of long-time aide Craig Fuller, who
said he had told Bush he was "eager"
for the job.
Bush said he would like Fuller, co
chairman of the transition team and
his chief of staff since 1985, to
consider a role in his administration
but that he chose Sununu because he
was the "right man for the job."
"John Sununu has the background
and experience necessary to work not
only with his former colleagues in the
nation's statehouses but also to build
a -Constructive relationship with the
U;S. Congress," he said.

RALEIGH Gov. Jim Martin
said Thursday his re-election and the
election of Republican Jim Gardner
as' -lieutenant governor gives him a
' "golden opportunity" to push a set
of legislative goals, including veto
power for the governor.
"I see it not just as a window of
opportunity," Martin said. "I see it
as a door.
"The timing is right from every
respect you look at it ... to share
ideas and not try to rub each other's
nose in it," the Republican governor
said at a news conference.
"Already, I have seen a willingness

divide us, and I hope that will
continue for a long time," said

for about 40 minutes with House
Speaker Liston Ramsey, D-Madison.
Martin said his legislative agenda
includes expansion of the career
ladder for teachers statewide,

Atwater will succeed Frank Fah

ago that he would relinquish the GOP
chairmanship at the end of President
Reagan's term and return to Nevada
to practice law.
Bush said Atwater's function will
be "winning elections." While Repub

Martin said. "I dont know what the

Martin said he was not willing to
make the same concession offered by
his Democratic opponent, Lt. Gov.
Bob Jordan, who said during the
campaign he might be willing to trade
the right of gubernatorial succession
for veto power. North Carolina is
now the only state that does not give
its governor the veto.
"My response then and now is that
I don't see the need to make con
cessions before we even sit down at
the table," Martin said. "I think the
public would support both veto
power and a second consecutive term
for the governor. It is an opportune
time for us to have that discussion.
Let's just put our proposals forward
and see what we have. .
