    San Francisco Chronical ^ | March 22 1997 | Marc Sandalow
    Democratic Congressman Gary Condit of Modesto has canceled a fund-raiser featuring Republican colleague John Kasich, blaming "narrow- minded zealots" for their "mindless" opposition to the affair. Kasich's willingness to appear on behalf of a Democrat had touched off protests among Republicans, with some suggesting that he be stripped of his powerful post as chairman of the House Budget Committee. Condit, a conservative Democrat and a close friend of Kasich, said he canceled the event after it became clear his colleague was being "vilified by narrow-minded zealots . . . (who) believe the sun rises and sets according to partisan affiliation."
