Senate, U.S. House, state
Senate and state House, are
posted throughout Oakland
County — heavily along
Northwestern Highway
between Southfield and
West Bloomfield limits.
And there have been
newspaper, television and
radio ads. Still, the at-
mosphere is tranquil.
Attorney Deborah Tyner
led the primary in her quest
to secure a new judicial post
on the Oakland Circuit
Court. Two will be elected
from a slate of four lawyers:
Ms. Tyner; Thomas
Brennan; Rudy Nichols; and
James Sheehy. The can-
didate receiving the highest
number of votes will be
elected to a 10-year term and
the second highest will be
elected to a six-year term.
The gubernatorial and
Senate races have been
tainted by negative crusades
in both camps. In the contest
for U.S. Senate, where in-
cumbent Sen. Carl Levin is a
strong favorite over Mr.
Schuette, the candidates
have used television and
radio mediums to replace
issues with mudslinging
rhetoric. The same is true for
Gov. James Blanchard and
his opponent, Sen. John
Engler.
Incumbents in both the
17th and 18th Congressional
Districts are expected to re-
tain their seats. Rep. Sander
Levin, D-Southfield, will
face Republican Blaine
Lankford, a graphic artist of
Royal Oak in the 17th
District. Management con-
sultant Walter Briggs, a
Democrat from Birm-
ingham, is running against
long-time Republican Rep.
William Broomfield in the
18th District, which is heav-
ily Republican.
Although campaigning
has been minimal, right to
life and pro-choice groups
have been out in force over

the abortion rights issue.
Abortion rights has come to
center stage since 1988,
when Medicaid-funded abor-
tions were cut off in Mich-
igan.
In July, the issue created
more emotional fervor when
the U.S. Supreme Court lim-
ited a woman's right to
choice, giving power to the
states to regulate abortion.
Most recently, the Michigan
Legislature approved a
parental consent law after
the Supreme Court ruled
that states can require
parental notifications when
teens seek abortions.
"Abortion is the primary
issue that separates can-

issue.

didates in each race," says
Carol King, executive direc-
tor for the Michigan Abor-
tion Rights Action League.
"The negative campaigning
has gotten to people. They
are distracted by the Middle
East. Congress is in dis-
array. People are fed up with
politics and politicians.
"We hope we have an issue
that will move them to over-
come apathy and complacen-
cy," Ms. King says.
Another, yet less
highlighted, issue is reap-
portionment. The next
Legislature will redraw con-
gressional districts. As soon
as U.S. Census figures are
completed, which could be
this summer, the state is ex-
pected to lose two represent-
atives.
Ms. Berman, expected to
retain her seat, will chair
the redistricting com-
mittee.
