She is the head of women s Way a non profit fund raising organization and won her race with a modest television and Campaign a she spent Only $504,000 a combined with favourable Media attention. She also was aided by her personal wealth which made up about a third of her Campaign fund.

Quot Bill Clinton has now moved to a general election Campaign focused on George Bush and it s Only april quot said democratic National committee chairman Ronald Brown. Quot it is truly historic for the democratic party to be rallying around a virtual nominee this Early in the Clinton aides said he did not ask for new endorsements from lawmakers who Are super delegates to the democratic convention but that he expected to gain several by Day s end a after a similar meeting with Senate leaders. The symbolism of the visit could t be clearer Clinton came to the Capitol acting As the nominee heartened not Only by his huge margin in Pennsylvania but also exit polls suggesting his image appears to be improving. Clinton tried to keep a delicate balance Between meeting with Congress and offering some criticisms of the body he often takes Issue with on the Campaign Trail and that is held in Low esteem by voters. He said a major goal of his would be to confront quot the insurance companies and the health care bureaucracies and a lot of the interest groups that Congress has been unwilling to take on in the past quot in the push for change in the nation s health insurance system. He also said he wanted Congress to give the president line item veto Power. Exit polls showed Clinton s image rebounding at least with Pennsylvania voters in the three weeks since the raucous new York primary. Sixty one percent said he had the honesty and integrity to be president a sharply higher percentage than in earlier states. Three weeks ago in new York 49 percent of voters leaving polling places said they did not believe the Arkansas governor was honest enough to serve. Quot i think we be shown real improvement quot Clinton said predict ing even More As he moves Ever closing to a mathematical lock on the nomination. Quot Rome was t built in a As much As Clinton and Bush had reason to cheer they also got fresh evidence of potential trouble 25 percent of voters in both parties said they would vote for Perot in the fall. While the presidential results were about As predicted Pennsylvania lived up to its recently earned reputation for surprises. Yeakel s win came after a Campaign in which she attacked Specter s treatment of Anita Hill during hearings to confirm Clarence Thomas to the supreme court. Specter easily won his primary. Five term democratic rep. Joseph Kolter was Defeated and eight term democratic rep.

Quot our circulatory will be everywhere quot Okamoto said. Quot we re going to make it very easy to find Gerry Roberson a petition drive Volunteer in Saticoy said Orange county interest in Perot has been intense.

James Stockdale or a designed for vice president. Perot has until aug. 27 to change his running mate Secretary of state officials said. The petition also lists 54 people who would represent Perot As electors in the electoral College. Five Are from Orange county. Official sees Perot As democrats wild card Mcclatchy news service Washington democrats should consider drafting Texas billionaire Ross Perot As their presidential nominee if the leading contender Bill Clinton continues to slide in Public opinion polls the speaker of the California Assembly said tuesday. Quot it appears As if president Bush is stabilizing at a certain level and Clinton is continuously sliding quot Willie Brownd san Francisco told reporters. Quot if that is in fact the Case and reveals itself in forthcoming primaries then we clearly will be looking for a candidate. And a county line poll Perot As democrats pick/b3 it seems to me we could look no further than the mystery Man Ross the speaker known for off the cuff remarks is the first major democratic Leader to publicly suggest that the party draft Perot since the businessman announced last month that he was considering an Independent presidential Campaign. Recent polls have shown Perot virtually tied or running better than Clinton even though the a Kansas governor is expected to win the democratic nomination. The speaker also predicted tuesday that former California gov. Jerry Brown will win the California presidential primary june 2 and that the democrats could lose the race for the seat of retiring democratic us sen. Alan Cranston if rep. Tom Campbell of Stanford is the gop nominee. He predicted that it. Gov. Leo Mccarthy will win the democratic primary in the Senate race and defeat any Republican except Campbell. He said Campbell is a political moderate who could attract democratic support in november. This year. In Illinois last month Carol Moseley Braun beat democratic sen Alan j. Dixon. Both Yeakel and Braun were motivated to run by their anger at the Senate judiciary committee s questioning of Law professor Anita Hill in the Thomas hearings. In his Concession speech before 70 subdued supporters in Philadelphia Singel offered a courteous comment after five Days of negative to ads that the candidates traded. Quot she will be an outstanding us senator quot he said. Earlier in the evening. Specter met with adviser David Garth and his son Shanin and Shook some hands at Independence Hall. Quot he was lighthearted quot said Dan Mckenna a Specter spokesman. The fall contest will pit Specter who proudly Calls himself a quot career politician quot against a woman who has never before run for office. It will take Ace in a year when women a apposed to be demanding a greater share of political Power. Yeakel has explained her dramatic Rise simply. Quot it in t a bad year for women quot she said. As for Specter quot he faces his worse Nightmare quot said g. Terry Madonna a political scientist. Quot Little Short of a political revolution is taking place. Female voters have flocked to her candidacy in record Colleen Alexander co chairwoman of the Montgomery county democratic committee said Yeakel got a Large vote from women who were pulled to the polls by her ads attacking Specter s role in the Thomas hearings. Quot look at the visual that was there. There was no in pit quot from women she said and quot look at who were the decides quot All men. Some analysts said the race puts Specter in a miserable position. He cannot Challenge Yeakel s liberalism because it reflects his own a in favor of abortion rights civil rights and women s rights.
