   Bonita Daily News (Newspaper) - September 30, 1970, Naples, Florida                                 3ANAHIS DAILY NEWS Wad., Sept. 30, 1970  State Races  ’Crime Fighter' Shevin Rolls Over Friday  MIAMI (AP) - state Sen. Bob Shevin rode an urban \-oting wave to the DeinocraUc nomination for Ftorida attorney general and now goes head-to-head with a e-foot-6, 280-pound Republican.  The 36-year-old Miamian led in only 15 of Florida’s 67 counties but walloped State Sen. Elmer Friday of Fort Myers soundly in big cities to win easily.  Shevin rolled up better than 13-1 edge in his populous home county of Dade and carried other giants such as Pinellas, Duval, Broward, Hillsborough and Orange.  The final unofficial vote count was 367,921 for Shevin, more than 54 per cent statewide, to Friday’s 311,051.  Shevin, an avowed crime fighter who promises to cut law breaking as attorney general or quit, will meet unopposed GOP candidate E. Thom Rumberger. The massive Republican, who earned college tuition by milking rattlesnakes, is a former circuit court Judge from Melbourne.  In another state race Tuesday, Rep. Bill Bevis of Fort Meade took the Democratic nomination for the Public Service Commission. He trounced former assistant atomey general  Wilson Wright of Tallahassee and meets Republican Rep. David Lindsey of Orlando in the Nov. 3 general election.  Wright, who led in six counties during a five-man first primary fight, won Just three counties against Bevis. ITie winner polled 332,092 votes, more than 56 per cent, to Wright’s 257,296.  “I seldom read horoscopes, but mine was a beauty for Tuesday,” said Shevin, whose father died from wounds in a Miami holdup 17 years ago. *‘It said under the Capricorn section that ‘others will concede to you. You will win.’”  Shevin said he was “delighted at the tremendous percentages in Broward and Dade counties.”  He credited a hunger for “new, fresh faces in high government of Florida” as a major factor in his victory over Friday, a 46-year-old former Oklahoma University football player.  Special thanks were handed to Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Lawton Chiles by Shevin, who said “his campaign helped focus the need for new, fresh blood.”  Contacted in Melbourne, the 38-year-old Rumberger said the runoff balloting indicated “once again a  majority of Democrats has rejected a sound, conservative candidate such as Sen. Ekner Friday.” Rumberger branded Shevin “an ultraliberal who has campaigned in right wing clothing.”  The former Judge served 1958-61 as the first attorney general of the University of Florida Honor Court while working on the side at Ross  Allen’s reptile farm in Ocala.  Shevin had led a three-man field during the Sept. 8 first prima^, 229,380 votes to 2i4,in lor FViday. Bill Meadows lost out with 157,640 votes and much of that Miami man’s support appeared to swing to Shevin.  Bevis, a one-time University of Tennessee football captain, also  repeated his first primary triumph. He led easily with 164,077 votes the first time around while Wright had to await a recount 48 hours after the polls closed to gain his runoff position. Wright wound up with 107,596 votes to Dominic Koo’s 106,944.  During the campaign, Wright had accused Bevis of “trying to get by solely on family connections and a  last-minute media barrage. He thinks by filling the airwaves he can confuse the voters of Florida.”  Second primary action was relatively light in state races, but a full-scale shootout was forecast for the general election.  The other matches include:  COMPTROLLER - In-cumbent Democrat Fred 0.  LAWTON CHILES  REUBIN ASKEW  WILLIAM BEVIS  CLAUDE KIRK  3 Incumbents Lose In Voting  2nd Black Elected To House  Some Of The Mfimers Aren't Happy Either  Losers aren’t the only candidates unhappy aftv Tuesday’s runoff primary. Some winners seemed upset because they would have to face opponents they had hoped to avoid in the November general election.  Lawton Chiles’ smashing victory over former Gov. Farris Bryant in the Democratic U.S. Senate runoff didn’t raise any cheers in the camp of Republican U.S. Rep. William Cramer, R-Fla., who won his party’s senatorial nomination in the first primary.  “I’ll admit this isn’t what we had hoped for,” a Cramer aide said after it became obvious the young state senator from Lakeland had achieved a 2-1 victory over Bryant.  “He’s riding a wave, and you can’t pin him down on flie issues,” the Cramer aide sakL “That walk brought Chiles a lot of attention, but it’s not s<nnething you could can controversial.”  He referred to a 1,000 mile walk the 40-year-old Chiles matte from Pensacola to the Florida Keys in his first primary campaign. Chiles daimed he met 40,000 people on flie walk, and said he planned to keep hoofing it around Florida in an effort to ride Shank’s Mare to Washington.  Bryant, too, had ridiculed the walk before his defeat.'  E. Thom Rumberger, Republican candidate for attorney general, mbde no bones about his displeasure over the runoff victmy of Democrat Robert Shevbi of Miami.  Rumberger, a 6-foot-6,280-pound former Melbourne circuit Judge, said that in nominating the 36-year-old Miamian the Democrats had “rejected a sound, conservative candidate, State Sen. Elmer Friday, and selected an ultra-liberal who has been campaigning in right-wing clothing.”  Gov. Claude Kirk won renomination easily over Republican opponent Jack Eckerd. Kirk maintained his usual indifference when asked if he was happy that State Sen. Reubin Askew had beaten Atty. Gen. Earl Faircloth in the Democratic runoff.  “I never really thought about it,” Kirk said.  But campaign staffers at Kirk’s Fort Lauderdale headquarters were obviously surprised by the 41-year-old Askew’s victory and were none too happy about it.  “I thought Faircloth would nail him,” said Kirk’s campaign Manager, Robert E. Lee as he watched the returns come in on television.  “Well, they both have their weaknesses,” he said in a way that made it clear he preferred Faircloth’s weaknesses to Askew’s.  By'RICH OPPEL  Associated Press Writer  TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Florida voters Tuesday elected two new state senators, ousted three of five incumbent House members, and sent a second black legislator to the House.  There were these key results in the 21 legislative races on the runoff election ballot:  <- Pensacola businessman W. D. Childers and State Rep. Gerald A. Lewis of Miami, both Democrats, were elected to the state Senate. They face no opposition in November.  —Incumbent Reps. John Robert Middlemas, D-Panama City, Clifford McNulty, R-Melboume, and William G. Roberts, D-Key West, were ousted by voters.  —Gwendolyn S. Cherry, a Negro lawyer, was elected by Dade County voters to sit in the House. The Miami Democrat faces no Republican opposition.  Childers defeated former State Rep. Gordon Wells of Pensacola to capture the Senate seat given up by Reubin Askew. Childers attacked Wells’ record as a beer industry lobbyist during the last session of the Legislature.  Rep. Lewis defeated former Rep. Mary Ann MacKenzie of Key Biscayne for the seat abdicated by Robert L. Shevin. For years Lewis has been a severe critic of Insurance Commissioner Broward Williams —defeated Sept. 8 — and the California plan of auto insurance rating which only recently has come under attack from other politicians.

Claude Kirk’s veto of the |12,000«-year salary which lawmakers had voted themselves. He also voted against another legislator’s resolution asking Congress to call a constitutional convention to restore prayer in public schools.  McNulty, who also voted for the pay raise, was upset by Merritt Island public relations agent Jane W. Robinson, a former newspaperwoman.  Roberts, an insurance agent who unseated Florida Keys power Bemie Papy in a 1968 House race, was ousted by Tavemier attmney Fred Tittle.  Mrs. Cherry will become only the second black person in modem history to sit in the Florida Legislature. There now will be two; the other being Rep. Joe Lang Kershaw, D-Miami, who was elected in 1968 and reelected in the Sept. 8 first primary.  Mrs. Cherry won over former North Bay Village Mayor Harvey Ruvin.  There were two Senate races in addition to those won by Childers and Lewis. State Rep. Bob Brannen of Lakeland defeated former Lakeland mayor George W. Trask in a bitter contest for the Democratic nomination to Lawton Chiles’ seat. Brannen faces a Republican opponent in the general election.  A battle between former State Atty. Tom Johnson ol Riviera Beach and former West Palm Beach mayor Reid Moore for the GOP nomination to Elmer  Tim Adams, a Negro who owns an Orlando restaurant, was defeated by white housewife Margaret C. Murray for the Democratic nomination to House seat 39 in Orange County.  Two allies of Gov. Kirk defeated two candidates identified with U.S.. Rep. WilUiuTi C.

Mooney of Orlando outpolled Paula F. Hawkins of Maitland for the party nomination for House seat 38.  Chiles Ready To Walk Again  MIAMI (AP)-Lawton Qiiles, who won the Democratic U.S. Senate race in a walk, prepared today to take to the road again for his general election showdown ^th the Republican nominee, Rep. Bill Cramer.  “I can’t wait,” said a Jubilant Chiles after a smashing, 2-to-l upset victory over former Gov. Farris Bryant in the Democratic battle for the seat of retiring Sen. Spessard L Holland. “I’m ready to start tonight.”  As Chiles piled up a commanding lead in the first returns from Tuesday’s runoff primary, Holland was on the phone early in the evening, offering congratulations and support in the general election.  “Cramer can bring in  President Nixon, Vice President Agnew, Gov. Ronald Reagan, and anybody else he wants to bring in,” ChUes said. “I’U take Holland on my side against all of them.”  Cramer, who won easy Republican nomination over former Judge Harrold Carswell in the first primary, was surprised at the strength demonstrated by Chiles in his sweep past the veteran Bryant. But he expressed confidence in his own chances.  “Each Democrat said the other couldn’t beat me,” said Cramer. “I agree with both of them.”  And Cramer quickly set the tone of the campaign he will wage against the “walking senator.”  Swamp Buggy Races  Oovtrnor-Dtmocratic By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Total Pel*  pei$ M At^ktw Fa^ireih Friday’s old Senate seat was nearly a dead heat.  Johnson led Moore by 184 votes with all machine results in, but 878 absentee ballots remaining to be counted.  In other House races. Rep. Joe Chapman, D-Panama City, won reelectim by a narrow margin over schoolteacher Wayne A. Brown.  The only other incumbent in the election, Rep. Walter W. Sackett Jr., D-Miami, a physician, easily defeated Pat L. Tomillo Jr., longtime executive secretary of the Dade County Classroom Teachers Association.

Secrtary of Agriculture Doyle Conner, a Democrat, is unopposed throughout the elections. Hal Dekle of Miami won a State Supreme Court seat in the first Democratic primary, having no GOP opposition.  Kirk-Askew Battle  (Contlnned from Page One) submited his resignation from the Senate to run for governor. Kirk told Askew he hoped he didn’t win because he was the best man the Democrats had in the Legislature.  Eckerd’s own statement of defeat was sad and paced like a eulogy. “I’m sorry we didn’t make it,” he told his workers at a Fort Lauderdale motel. “I know you are. God bless you aU.”  “I’m an amateur in politics,” Eckerd told a reporter later. He said aides had misled him on how well he might do.  During televised debates last Sunday both Eckerd and Kirk had pledged to support the GOP nominee for governor. After Kirk won Eckerd said, “I’ve always voted for Republicans in the general election and this year is no different”  An Eckerd aide said the questions of public stq;>port and donations were open. Eckerd spent abnost $1.1 niillion — mostly his own money — in his losing bid for nomination while Kirk has spent less than one-third of that winning.  But Buzz Rummell, Eckerd’s press aide, said Eckerd had been disappointed at losing. “I don’t think that he’ll really get out and actively campaign,” Rummell said.  Kirk had run two different campaigns, playing hard to find in the first primary but pulling only 48 per cent of the vote.  With defeat Just one ballot away, Kirk came out punching. He debated Eckerd on television and podiums across the state and bought advertising in the state’s major papers.  Althou^ there were 13,000 fewer voters Tuesday than on Sept 8, Kirk increased his first primary showing by 23,000 votes while Eckerd innproved his Sept 8 total by Just 11,460.  Kirk’s renomination also automatically roiominates Lt Gov. Ray Osborne.  •NAPLES THEA1RE:  •    NOW SHOWING •  tf’Epk; battle  •    ofthe  •    sexes.'  e n.v.tmmm  •  Askew’s running mate.

Askew’s victory left only these counties to Faircloth: Baker, Bay, Bradford, Broward, Collier, Columbia, Dade, Dixie, Duval, GUchrist, Gulf, Hamilton, Indian River, Jefferson, Levy, Monroe, Nassau, Sumter, and Suwannee.  Ertto Confesses Sfce Wes Worried  FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) - Erika Kirk, wife of Florida’s governor, said Tuesday night she had been frightened by the prospect of Jack Eckerd defeating Gov. Claude Kirk for the Republican gubernatorial nomination.  The comment came in her answer to a question about whether she was confident her husband would win ren<»nination.  “I was pretty confident but you couldn’t be sure,” Mrs. Kirk replied. “Someone with that much money; you know, it’s frightening.
