    TRANSCRIPT: ROCKEFELLER: I MADE THE STATEMENT AT A MEETING OF REPUBLICAN GOVERNORS THAT THE PARTY MUST DECIDE WHO IT FEELS CAN BEST REPRESENT IT, AND WHO IT THINKS CAN BEST COMMAND THE CONFIDENCE OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND BEST SERVE THIS COUNTRY. THE SECOND POINT I BROUGHT OUT WAS, THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAD TWO OBJECTIVES: ONE, TO REMAIN UNITED, AND SECONDLY TO NOMINATE SOMEONE WHO CAN GET ENOUGH INDEPENDENT AND DEMOCRATIC VOTES TO GET ELECTED. THIRD, I MADE THE POINT THAT I AM NOT GOING TO CREATE DISSENSION WITHIN THE REPUBLICAN PARTY BY CONTENDING FOR THE NOMINATION. BUT, I AM READY AND WILLING TO SERVE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE IF CALLED.



    REPORTER: DO YOU THINK THAT THERE IS MUCH PROSPECT THAT YOU WILL RECONSIDER AND ENTER THE OREGON PRIMARY.



    ROCKEFELLER: WELL, AS I'VE SAID TO YOU BEFORE, I HAD NO FURTHER COMMENTS ON ANY OF THIS, BUT I'M NOT PLANNING TO GO ON ANY PRIMARIES.



    REPORTER: YOU'RE PLANNING TO GO INTO NO PRIMARIES?



    ROCKEFELLER: THAT IS CORRECT.



    REPORTER: THAT'S A FINAL DECISION?



    ROCKEFELLER: THEY SAY IN POLITICS THERE'S NOTHING FINAL, BUT ITS FINAL AS FAR AS I'M CONCERNED.



    REPORTER: NOTHING COULD CHANGE YOUR MIND?



    ROCKEFELLER: I'VE GIVEN EVERYTHING I'VE GOT TO GIVE.
