Newsmen asked Range! if he thought Powell would ask for a recount. "I think Adam withdrew from this race a long lime he said, adding that Powell "was not serving the people and the overwhelming number wanted a change." There was a long time when that was not true. For years Powell's constituents thought he could do no wrong. As recently as two years ago he coula truthfully boast, "I could be re-elected with Mickey Mouse as my campaign manag- er." He won handily then even while he was excluded from the Jiouse for alleged misuse of funds. Powell fought (he exclusion with the Supreme Court and won. Meantime a new Congress convened and Powell was per- mitted to resume his seat, but was stripped of the seniority that had trvjrte him the chair- man of the Education and Labor Committee.

One of them was Esther James, whom he call-xl a "bag woman for the Police slang lerai meaning a person who picks up bribes for corrupt police. The remark led lo a defama- tion suit by Mrs. James that ul- timately involved 80 judges, 10 courts, four juries and 15 law- yers. And Powell's nonappear- ance at various stages of the liligalion was a major factor leading to his exclusion from the House. In the current primary, Pow- ell as usual campaigned very litlie. He said he had won a re- cent bout with cancer and blamed Ihc illness for his recent absenteeism from Congress. He told one of his few prcpri- mary news conferences his chances of defeat were "none whalsocver." But Itangel, once a staunch Powell supporter, set the lone for the campaign: "Ho did a great job in the past but now it's lime for someone else to lake over." Former Harlem rent strike leader Jesse Gray, another can- didate, put it this way: "Adam is just tired, the community un- derstands that."

Goldberg on Tuesday lo op- pose three-term Republican Cov. Nelson A. Rockefeller. Two veteran Democratic con- Clayton Pow- ell and Leonard were defeated. For Ihe-first time, the Demo- CMls nominated a Negro, Stale Sen. Basil Palerson of Harlem, for lieutenant governor. Her- man Radillo of tiie Bronx won a chance to become the stale's fijsl Puerto liico-born congress- man. In his first bid for elective of- fice, Goldberg, fil, defeated up- stalc millionaire Howard Sa- muels, 50. The slate's first gu- bernatorial primary in nearly fO years drew only 27 per cent of ihe Democrats despite perfect weather. The GOP had no slate- wide contests. Another millionaire, Rep. Hichard Olliiiger of suburban Wcsl Chester County, won a four-man race to oppose OOP Sen: Charles E. Goodell, ap- pointed by Rockefeller lo com- plete the term of Ihc late Robert F. Kennedy. Ollinger's massive spending for television advertis- ing was the main issue.

Samuels, in tears at 2 a.m., refused to concede unlil lite count was complete. A suppor- ter shouted that he should run independently in November, but Samuels said he would unile be- liind Goldberg if he is the Demo- cratic nominee. "I Ihink it's important Uiat the policies of Richard Nixon be repudiated in the State of New Samuels said. In the low-key manner that marked his whole campaign, Goldberg told a surprisingly subdued crowd at his headquar- ters: "1 still do not think it ap- propriate for me to claim victo- ry. In no way do.I criticize Mr. Samuels for not making a concession statement." Goldberg, former secretary of labor and U.N. ambassador, is the first man of national slalure Ihe Democrats have sent against Rockefeller since Rock- efeller ousted Gov. Averell Har- riman in 1958. The former union negotiator, judge and diplomat campaigned a "conciliator." He called the nomination of Paterson "more important than mine" because lie is the first black nominated for statewide office In New York. Paterson led the ticket in de- feating Jerome Ambro Jr., a while counly supervisor from Long Island vdw never made race an issue.
