Six House Republicans held a press conference in the U.S. Capitol to criticize the re-exhumation of the “October Surprise” issue by a House panel. The panel intends to investigate charges that in 1980, the campaign staff of presidential candidate Ronald Reagan worked out a deal with Iran so the American hostages held in Iran would not be released until after the November elections.
