WASHINGTON (AP) -Despite the stunning
triumphs of President Carter and ' Ronald
Reagan, there is no, apparent rush by backers of
the other White House hopefuls to sign up with
the front-runners, a survey shows.
An Associated Press spot check of political ac-
tivists across the country showed backers of
Democrats Edward Kennedy and Edmund
Brown Jr., and Republicans George Bush and
John Anderson are, hanging tough despite the
reverses suffered by their favorites.
"People are remaining in place," said
Michigan Republican Party Chairman Peter
Fletcher. "People experienced in the arena

months time. You can't take anything for gran-
KENNEDY HAS beaten Carter only once, in
the Massachusetts primary. On the GOP side,
Bush won in Massachusetts after beating
Reagan in the' Iowa caucuses, but Reagan has

swept all the other primaries.
Rep. Philif Crane of Illinois suggested last
week that his supporters work for Reagan's
nomination, although Crane stopped short of
formally withdrawing from the race. That left
some of the congressman's followers in a state of
. Former GOP candidate John Connally has
been reported as ready to endorse Reagan soon.
BUT THE candidates still in the race seem to
be holding their own in hopes of a comeback.
"I've never been a switch-hitter," said
Michigan Attorney General Frank Kelley, who
endorsed Kennedy early in the campaign.
"We'll stay with the senator as long as he's in
the race," Kelley said. "Realistically, his chan-
ces are slim. It would take a major turnaround.
But I don't see anybody getting out."
Among the few defectors was Tony Adams,
Kennedy's North Carolina 'campaign chairman
who resigned the day after the Iowa caucuses

and switched to Carter, saying the president had
proved he could lead the party, But neither Ken-
nedy nor Brown ever had much support in North
ON THE REPUBLICAN side, George Bush
appears to be hanging onto his supporters in Nor-
th Carolina, even though the former United
Nations ambassador is a heavy underdog to
Reagan in that state.
Three Bush supporters in Maryland have
switched to uncommitted status on that state's
primary ballot, but they say it is purely a prac-
tical matter.
Former Sen. J. Glenn Beall and state Sens.
Edward Mason and Edward Thomas say they
feel Reagan is likely to carry their district but
they hope to win election on their own strength.
They still plan to work for Bush.
FROM WASHINGTON state, Arizona, Kansas,
Texas, Pennsylvania, Ohio; New York, Connec-
ticut, Rhode Island, Oklahoma, Virginia,

Georgia, and Tennessee came reports of cam-
paign troops standing pat, although the under-
dogs never had much support in some of those
"People in this state who voted for Kennedy
were making a statement, and I think they'll
stick to their statement," said Karen Marchioro,
a Kennedy supporter in Washington and party
chairwoman in King County.
Although Anderson failed to get on the Pen-
nsylvania ballot, his supporters there as well as
in other states where he is active are faithful
despite the odds.
"I'm an Anderson supporter up to the conven-
tion and hopefully beyond," said Anderson-state
coordinator John DiNunzio. "We have no
delusions of grandeur. But I'll support
Congressman Anderson as long as he has a
viable campaign."
Shirley Williams of the Bush campaign in
Texas says there have been no defections there.

Carter crushes Kennedy in Va. caucuses

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - President Carter trouni
ced Sen. Edward Kennedy in Democratic Party
caucuses yesterday as Virginia's delegate selection
process began.
Virginia was the only southern state Carter failed
to carry in the 1976 general election.
With the tabulations completed for roughly nine per
cent of the caucus-mass meetings held across the
state, Carter led his Massachusetts challenger by
about a six-to-one margin.
STATE DEMOCRATIC Party officials said it was
likely Carter ultimately would get 59 of the state's 64
delegates to the national nominating convention.
By late afternoon, officials said, 2,169 Carter sup-
porters had been elected as delegates to attend con-
ventions in Virginia's 10 congressional districts and
the state Democratic convention in Richmond on
May 16-17.
Kennedy backers had elected only 355 delegates,

while California Gov. Edmund Brown Jr. could claim
only one. Those listing themselves as "uncommitted"
totaled 186..
IN WASHINGTON, the White House issued a
statement hailing Carter's "decisive victory." A
presidential aide who asked for anonymity predicted
Carter would wind up with at least 55 of the 64
The statement said Carter's win means Kennedy
would have to capture 62 per cent of the delegates in
all remaining caucuses and primaries to win the
Just five days ago, the Carter camp said that Ken-
nedy would need 56 per cent of the delegates. But
each win for the president ups the percentage.
"THE CONTINUING primaries and caucuses
provide voters from across the country the oppor-
tunity to express their views on the type of leadership
they want for the next four years," the White House

statement said, "and the president is grateful for the
continued strong preference shown his candidacyl0
all regions of the country."
The Virginia meetings were ;held to select 2,999
delegates to the state convention, from which the 64
will be chosen for the Democratic National Conven-
tion this August in New York City.
Each district convention will name five delegates
to the national convention. Another 14 will be named
by the state convention.
Between 20,000 and 35,000 people had been.expected
to participate in the caucuses.
Prefiled registrations for the caucuses had }
dicated Carter would enjoy at least a 3-1 margin ov
Kennedy, his principal rival for the party's
NATIONALLY., CARTER enjoyed a nearly 3-1
delegate margin over Kennedy going into Saturday's

Reagan appears headed for a first-ballot
nomination at the Republican National
Convention and speculation isunder
way on the man or woman he will
choose as his running mate.
Reagan, already 69, might not-if
elected-seek a second term, putting
his vice president in an excellent
position for 1984.
Reagan has repeatedly said he will
seek a running mate "who believes as I



do philosgphically and who would carry
on my policies no matter what
candidates-Sens. Orrin Hatch of Utah
and Paul Laxalt of Nevada-have to be
scratched because they come from
western states as does Reagan.
That leaves the Midwest, the South
and Northeast.
Two of the most frequently
mentioned possibilities-both blue chip
in the eyes of conservatives-are Reps.
Jack Kemp of New York and Phil Crane
of Illinois.
KEMP, A 44-year-old former pro
football quarterback, has come to
national attention through . co-
sponsorship of the Kemp-Roth tax cut;
Crane has been plodding through the
primaries getting a smattering of
A longtime Reagan supporter like
Kemp and adds Senate GOP- leader
Howard Baker has been "mentioned
from time to time." He added that
Baker'is "reasonably close" to Reagan
philosophically, but ". . . some
conservatives would resist."
The same Reagan suporter dismissed
John Connally and George Bush as
Connally's unsuccessful campaign

showed the public wasn't "very
enchanted" with him, he said, adding
of Bush: "All he has is a resume and it
isn't a "ery good one at thatwhen you
get through the tea pouring in China."
Two other senators mentioned are
Richard Lugar of Indiana and John
Danforth of Missouri.
Governors who could get a call
include William Milliken of Michigan,
Robert Ray of Iowa and Richard
Snelling of Vermont, but they all might
be too far to the center for Reagan.




The Ace in a


Advisers tell
Kennedy to
Sen. Edward Kennedy's advisers
are telling him to keep plugging i
his challenge to President Carter,
even as they concede it will take a
dose of the unforeseen to save a
withering campaign.
"It's mathematically possible,
psychologically possible, politically
possible, and practically possible for
things to change," said one close
aide who has been with the senator
for a decade.
"THE IRANIAN and Afghanistan
situations have worked for Carter
The United Nations vote against
Israel worked against him. You
don't know what will happen next,
but I'm convinced something will.
Things could change very quickly,"
said. this aide, who requested
By that scenario, "he wouldn't
have to drop out, and he still could
have some impact at the conven-
tion," said.one lieutenant who alst
declined to be identified publicly.
"That way he could keep both his
viability and his dignity."
IN AN interview late in the week,
Kennedy acknowledged hearing
from "those who say you go back to
the Senate and use that as a base and
speak to the issues. But I haven't
thought about that."
Kennedy repeated his vow that
even if he does poorly in the New
York and Connecticut primaries o'
Tuesday, he will not fold up his tent.
"I'm in this race for the course,"
he declared.
YET SOME Kennedy insiders say
that if the senator fails to pick up the
New York delegates he has called
"essential," he will downgrade or
perhaps even suspend active cam-

nedy's family, including campaig

Sources who refused to be iden-

the candidate should drop out.
