NEW YORK — The
American Jewish Commit-
tee has joined a coalition of
religious, legal, labor, reset-
tlement and Haitian com-
munity organizations in
supporting Federal District
Judge Eugene Spellman's
recent decision ordering the
release of some 2,000 im-
prisoned Haitians pending
final determination of their
status.
The Haitians have been
held in Federal detention
centers for more than a year
while awaiting government
determination whether
they may seek asylum in
the United States. Judge
Spellman's ruling was is-
sued late last month in
Miami where many of the
Haitians have been incarc-
erated. -

Key U.S. Senate Election Races Analyzed

By MORRIS J. AMITAY

WASHINGTON — Here
is a look at some of the in-
teresting U.S. Senate races
in the November elections:
MICHIGAN — Incum-
bent Democratic Senator
Don Riegle was thought to
have a serious re-elction
problem at this time last
year. The changing
economic situation in
Michigan and the failure of
popular Republican Gover-
nor William Milliken to
enter the race have com-
bined to make re-election
much more likely for Riegle.
The GOP frontrunner is
former U.S. Rep. Phil
Ruppe, who did not distin-
guish himself as a particu-
lar friend of Israel. Riegle,
on the other hand, has built
a record of strong support
for a close U.S.-Israel
partnership with vocal op-
position to arms sales to Is-
rael's foes and support for
U.S. foreign aid to Israel.
While the Michigan race
is far from over, most
analysts believe that Riegle
will win.
MARYLAND — The re-
election campaign of Demo-
cratic Senator Paul Sar-
banes is one race of unusual
importance. Sarbanes is an

important and influential
member of the Senate
Foreign Relations Commit-
tee and its subcommittee on
the Near East.
After the loss in 1980 of
three friends from the com-
mittee, Church, Javits, and
Stone, the Sarbanes race
emerges as a high priority.
The major GOP chal-
lenger in the September
primary is former U.S. Rep.
Larry Hogan. Judging from
Hogan's record in the
House, he is not expected to
be particularly favorable.
The Sarbanes race has
been targeted by many na-
tional conservative, groups,
who will pour a lot of money
into Maryland to defeat
Sarbanes. Hogan is ex-
pected to wage a vigorous
campaign, but Sarbanes is
the favorite.
MASSACHUSETTS —
Senator Edward Kennedy is
running for re-election to a
fourth term in the Senate.
While his victory is not in
doubt, Kennedy will put a
great deal of effort into the
campaign to enhance his
status as a contender for the
1984 Democratic President-
ial' nomination.
A long-time supporter of
Israel, Kennedy has been

rael.

very active in the last few
years opposing arms sales to
Israel's foes and supporting
a strong U.S.-Israel rela-
tionship.
Kennedy is challenged by
Republican businessman-
inventor Raymond Shamie.
In his last Senate race Ken-
nedy won with 70 percent of
the vote, and political
analysts will be looking at
the size of his margin on
election night.
MINNESOTA — In-
cumbent Republican
Senator David Durenberger
is running for re-election
after filling the unexpired
term of the late Hubert
Humphrey for the past four
years. The Sept. 14 Democ-
ratic primary will most
likely see department store
heir Mark Dayton emerge
as the challenger. Duren-
berger has built a solid re-
cord of support for legisla-
tion favorable to closer
U.S.-Israel ties and actively
opposed the F-15 enhance-
ment package of Saudi
Arabia.
Durenberger is consi-
dered a "corner" in GOP cir-
cles and holds a command-
ing lead at this time in the
polls. However, the race is
expected to tighten up.
MISSISSIPPI — In a
state where political
analysts have tended to
concede the Senate election
to 25-year Democratic vete-
ran Senator John Stennis, a
new GOP candidate, Haley
Balbour, vice chairman of
the Mississippi GOP, is rais-
ing significant funds for his
campaign and has sought to
build a relationship with
Mississippi's small but ac-
tive Jewish community.
Stennis has always gone
down the line with the in-
cumbent Administration on
Middle East policy, and has
not been accessible. Stennis'
age and Repuglican inroads
in Mississippi could make
this an interesting race.

MISSOURI — First term
Republican Senator John
Danforth is running for re-

election and is a heavy favo-
rite in this generally Demo-
cratic state. He has an out-
standing record on issues of
concern to the American
Jewish community, with
the exception of his vote in
favor of the 1978 sale of
F-15s to Saudi Arabis,
which he has described as
his toughest vote.
In 1981 Danforth re
versed himself and strongly
opposed the sale of AWACS
and F-15 enhancement
equipment to the Saudis.
There are 11 Democrats
entered in the Aug. 3 prim-
ary, with Jewish State
Senator Harriet Woods
emerging as the early fron-
trunner.
NEBRASKA — First
term Jewish Senator Ed
Zorinsky (D) is running for
re-election in Nebraska. A
member of the Senate
Foreign Relations Commit-
tee, Zorinsky is being chal-
lenged by former Vice
Commander of the Strategic
Air Command James Keck
(R).
Zorinsky is one of the two
Jewish Senators who voted
in favor of the sale of
AWACS and F-15 en-
hancement equipment to
Saudi Arabia. In Zorinsky's
case, it was especially odd
after his vote against the
sale in the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee before
the floor vote.
Last fall, Keck also an-
nounced his support for the
AWACS sale, but he has in-
dicated he would vote for
foreign aid. Zorinsky has
consistently voted against
foreign aid. Zorinsky is
clearly ahead at this point.
