Sen. Robb and Gov. Wilder spoke to reporters after meeting to discuss the ongoing political “feud” between the two men. In recent weeks, media reports have publicized charges of ethical lapses made by the staffs of the two politicians. Sen. Robb’s staff charged that Gov. Wilder’s campaign publicized rumors of an extramarital tryst between the senator and a Virginia beauty queen, while Gov. Wilder’s staff charged Sen. Robb’s staff of possession of illegally obtained transcripts of telephone calls made by the governor. Sen. Robb said the meeting was delightful, and both men said no political “feud” existed. Gov. Wilder said the two men had been friends for almost fifteen years, with one year where Sen. Robb said their communication was “strained.” Gov. Wilder said he believed Sen. Robb had not done anything to him, and was not involved in any investigation of the stolen transcript incident. close
