Dem. gubernatorial

(Conritioid from Page 3)
on a sour note after he attacked
President Johnson's Vietnam
policy and federal funds pouring
into Detroit virtually dried up.
LEVIN, a state senator from-
1966 to 1970 and a longtime lead-
er in Michigan's Democratic
party, was narrowly defeated
by Milliken when he made his
first bid for the governorship
four years ago.
A l t h o a g h Levin is often
praised for his ability to com-
promise and gather support
from both moderates and lib-
erals, this trait has also worked
against him.
He has frequently drawn cri-
ticism for being too cautions
and not taking a firm stand on
controversial issues.
DURING a series of debates
broadcast on r a d i o stations
throughout the state, both can-
didates have censured the eco-
nomic policies of the Milliken
administration and stressed the
need for campaign reform.
Levin contends that the state
"faces a dangerous f i s c a l
crisis" that will probably result
in an increase in the state in-
come tax next year.

"Milliken has been fiscally
irresponsible and he has failed
to sound the alarm," Levin
said during a debate Thursday
night. "We are facing a major
crisis-it looks like the year af-
ter this election the state is
going to have to come up witis
$600 million."
CAVANAGH has charged ti,:,t
because "Milliken is not a vig-
orous and imaginative gover-
nor" the state has not received
its fair share of federal funds.
Both Levin and Cavanagh
loudly proclaim the need for
stricter campaign finance laws
and have repeatedly stressed
that all contributions made to
them have been strictly legal.
"We have run the most re-
sponsible campaign in the his-
tory of the United States," said
Levin Thursday. "I am proud
of my record as an open, honest
CAVANAGH, w h o believes
that Milliken has a "dismal
and abysmal" record, criticized
the governor for not pushing
campaign finance legislation.
"Milliken likes to talk about
campaign reform, but he hasn't
done anything about it," he

Although Levin and Cavanagh
vehemently maintain that they
have received no illegal contri-
butions, Wells charged Thurs-
day that his opponents' cam-
paigns are being largely fi-
nanced by lobbyists and con-
tractors and that Levin has ac-
cepted a large corporate con-
tribution-which is strictly for-
bidden under state law.
LEVIN HAS flatly denied the
charge and called it an "irre-
sponsible" statement.
Wells asserts that his oppo-
nents should either return the
money to contractors and lobby-
ists or declare that "they will
give no political favors to any-
one contributing to their cam-
paign during the tenure in of-
Cavanagh claims, however,
that contributions f r o m con-
tractors won't affect him.
"I've always been my own
man," he says. "The governor
is not responsible for awarding
contracts and while I was may-
or, the contracts were always
awarded to the lowest bidder,
not to repay political favors.'
