In addition to serving on numerous advisory boards, Bill is an original signer of the Manhattan Declaration.CONGRESSIONAL CAMPAIGNS:Bill’s campaign for Congress in 2000 was key in keeping the U.S. House in majority control, as his opponent, Minority Leader Dick Gephardt, had to give up plans of campaigning for other candidates. Gephardt boasted of being the next “Speaker” but instead had his toughest re-election, spending $6 million against Federer’s $3 million from 35,000 contributors across America, in the nation’s 3rd most expensive Congressional race that year.(US News & World Report, 11/7/06, listed nationally among the most expensive House races of 2000 & 2004). President Bush’s uncle, William H.T. “Bucky” Bush, co-chaired Bill’s finance committee. Speaker Dennis Hastert, Majority Leader Dick Army, Conference Chairman J.C. Watts, Jr., Ambassador Alan Keyes, Phyllis Schlafly, William J. Murray, David Limbaugh, Chief Justice Roy Moore and other national leaders campaigned for Bill. Written and/or radio endorsements were received from Pat Boone, Chuck Norris, Ted Nugent, Art Linkletter and Dr. James Dobson. “Highly effective political machinery” was Gephardt’s reluctant admission of Federer in an appeal letter, as Bill received the most votes ever against him! The same week Bill won in court against Gephardt’s machine, Gephardt announced he would not seek re-election. Bill ran in 2004, winning Jefferson County and receiving 47% of the vote, the highest number of votes received in Missouri’s 3rd Congressional District by a Republican since statehood.
