he fact that he wants to be President.
For potential presidential- can-
didates, the 1978 elections have also
been a chance to build up some political
I.O.U.'s across the country. Vice-
President Walter Mondale,
Massachusetts Sen. Edward Kennedy,
ind even Jimmy Carter on the
Democratic side have criss-crossed the
country for their party's candidates. On
teGOP side, Gerald Ford, Robert
Dole, John Connally, Ronald Reagan
and George Bush have all been busy
stumping for local Republican tickets.
The campaign appearances by the
heAvy-hitters were seen by most
political observers as a popularity con-
test, or a political lithmus test, for the
1980 presidential sweepstakes.

The latest Market Opinion Research
poll, released yesterday by the Detroit
News and WJBK-TV, showed Governor
William Milliken leading Fitzgerald 47
to 45 per cent, with 8 per cent un-
decided. That prediction puts the race
in a dead heat.
EARLIER, IN their second and final
televised debate, Milliken and Fit-
zgerald angrily bickered over the PBB
issue for 15 minutes, ignoring the
moderator's pleas to move on to other
Fitzgerald, a Democratic state
senator from Detroit, accused the in-
cumbent Republican of "wrapping
yourself in the flag of Michigan" to
Democrats' current majority.
Only in the state senate does the GOP
realistically expect to make some
tangible gains. The game-plan for cap-
turing control of the senate rests. on:
" Republicans keeping the 14 seats
they now hold;
" Taking away five key Democratic
seats, including the two seats formerly
held by Democrats John Otterbacher
and Anthony Derezinski; and
" Seeing Milliken re-elected, giving
the Republicans the tie-breaking
lieutenant governor's vote.

he handled the PBB aftermath.
"THE SITTING on his duff for 24 long
months allowed tons and tons of con-
taminants to enter the food chain in this
state," Fitzgerald charged. "The point
is, you didn't respond."
Mildken, however, defended his han-
dling of the matter, emphasizing that
PBB is no longer a , problem in
Michigan. He said Fitzgerald, who was
the state Senate's majority leader at
the height of the PBB controversy, only
discovered PBB when it was politically
expedient for him to do so-during the
"Where was Senator Fitzgerald when
we needed him to help lower the
tolerance level?; " Milliken asked.
THE 56-YEiR-OLD governor said
"what is important to note is that PBB
is out of the food chain."

The most heated exchange between
the two came after Milliken said he

be attributed to the typical workhorse
efforts of local Democrats.

MILLIKEN ALSO challenged what
he said were statements by Fitzgerald
that he would fire all 19 state depar-
tment heads if he were elected. He said
only 10 such people could be ousted by
the governor since the others are either
electred or appointed by commissions.
Fitzgerald denied every saying he
would fire department heads beyond
the authority of the governor's office.
But Milliken wouldn't drop the issue

Senator Fitzgerald's repeated
statements to that effect (that he would
fire all 19 department heads)," the

the increase in student registration is
