Incumbent Bullard wins; Pierce triumphs

vacated by retiring state Senator
Gilbert Bursley. Bullard led Buchanan
by about two to one, 15,130to 7,419.
The 48-year-old Pierce, an Ann Arbor
physician, was especially jubilant over
"There are people in this room,"
Pierce told the large group of suppor-
ters gathered in the basement of the
Bell Tower Hotel, "who have worked
politically with me for 14 years. . . I'm
going to try to be the best Democratic
state senator this district has ever had.
"I'M GOING to take my wife to
Europe for 16 days -. . . then I'm going
to come back and work like hell."
Bullard, also, was exuberant.
"Lewt's make Ann Arbor the
showcase of progressive politics," he
urged the crowd minutes after Pierce.
"The Democratic Party has a lot to be
proud of; we are going to continue and
win the mayoral race in the spring."
Pierce had twice been defeated for
federal office, first losing in 1974 in a
bid for the nomination to the 2nd
district U.S. Congressional seat and
then being narrowly defeated by Rep.
Carl Pursell in the general election for
that position in 1976.
PIERCE IS perhaps the best known
local political figure not currently in of-
fice. Ten years ago the grey-haired
physician abandoned his private prac-
tice to establish the Summit Medical
Center which provides low-cost service
to low income patients. He had said if
defeated in this election, he would not
again seek public office.
Bullard, 36, has pushed through laws
on controversial topics such as en-
vironmental protection, government
secrecy, and freedom of information.
The University Law School graduate
said last night he would continue to
push for marijuana decriminalization,
hoping to get a bill passed during the
lame duck session.
Bullard's opponent Buchanan, a 27-
year-old lawyer with a local firm, was
running his first race. "I don't know
what you have to do-I've been cam-
paigning for five months and two days
now. I guess they want a socialist," the
self acclaimed "libertarian conser-
vative" said in concession last night.
Pierce's rival, Colburn, 38, is a
University speech professor and has
served on the boards of several cor-
porations and unions. Colburn said last
night he needed more time to catch
Pierce. He did not become an official
candidate until September 27 when a
recount showed him the narrow victor
over City Councilman Ronald
Trowbridge (Fourth Ward) in a hotly
contested primary. Trowbridge was
originally announced as the winner by
one vote in that race.
Pierce campaigned on a platform
that stressed a need for government to
try to regain the trust of the people.
"The mood and tone of the electorate-is
so anti-government" that elected of-
ficials must "at least start people on the
road to believeing that the political
process works," Pierce has said.
What would Socrates
think of Cinci?',
If you question long enough and deep enough, certain truths
about Cinci become evident.
It has a hearty, full-bodied flavor. It is smooth and easy going
down. And, the quality of its head is fact rather than philosophical
We think there's one truth about Cinci that Socrates would not
question: Its too good to gulp. As any rational man can taste.

MIlliken first heard of his probable
victory after he returned from dinner.
He stepped out of his car outside the
Renaissance Center in Detroit and was
informed that CBS had projected him
the overwhelming winner.
Fitzgerald walked to the podium at
the Fairlane Manor in Dearborn at 11
p.m. to make his concession speech.
The tall bachelor appeared pale in
defeat. His eyes moistened as the band
played "When Irish Eyes Are Smiling."
"The people of Michigan may have
missed the opportunity to put one of the
finest human beings in the chair of
governor," said Fitzgerald. He
congratulated both the governor and
the Lieutenant Governor James
Brickley and their wives and
acknowledged Milliken's over-
whelming popularity across the state.

lieutenant governor, Libby Maynard,

Attorney General Frank Kelley was
elected to a sixth term by a three-to-one
landslide over Republican challenger
Stephen Brandsorger, a Grand Rapids
attorney. Kelley, 53, has been attorney
general since 1961 and has always been
heavily supported by unions and the
Democratic party. Early last night,
with 5 per cent of the vote counted
Kelley had 78 per~cent of the vote.
Secretary of State Richard Austin
buried state Representative Melvin
Larsen by a three to one margin.
Austin, 65, has made sweeping cost-
saving changes in operators' license
and vehicle license procedures since he
was elected in 1970. Austin has also
linked voter registration with driver
and vehicle registration at secretary of
state offices throughout the state. 1
Also, voters kept two state Supreme
Court justices in office. G. Mennen
"Soapy" Williams, who hold the record
for longevity in the governor's office,
was re-elected to the high court as was
James Ryan. Although the high court
race is non-partisan, Williams was en-
dorsed by Democrats, while Ryan had

said he was not surprised by that result.
He said Fitzgerald's ardent anti-abor-

ning the wards.
