Former Senator Tsongas spoke to the National Press Club on his unannounced candidacy for the presidency in 1992. Sen. Tsongas, who is expected to officially announce his candidacy for the 1992 Democratic nomination for president on April 30, is the only Democrat other than Gov. Wilder of Virginia who has openly sought consideration for the nomination. In his remarks, the former senator spoke on his reasons for running, including a desire to provide debate on important national issues, including the national debt and the trade deficit. He also mentioned his book, A Call to Economic Arms, a treatise on the problems of the current U.S. economic policies with a possible economic policy to solve them. Sen. Tsongas labelled himself “an economic Paul Revere,” who wants to rally the American people to economic “independence.” He stated a desire to change the Democratic party to the party of economic rebirth and preeminance through sound economic thinking. close
