The Candidates
One month ago, former vice
president Walter Mondale was
expected to win nearly all of Michigan's
155 delegates to the Democratic
National Convention this summer in
San Francisco. He was raised in nearby
Minnesota, and his endorsement by the
g AFL-CIO was supposed to guarantee a
landslide here.
But then there was Iowa. And New
Hampshire. And Vermont, Maine, and
a Wyoming. And Super Tuesday.
Suddenly Gary Hart was on the cover of
every magazine. His new-found
momentum led Mondale to drop the
- title of "frontrunner" and start
campaigning seriously.
With Hart's new popularity cam
'a increased importance for the Michigan
"'' caucuses. National attention brought
- candidate attention, and the state was
treated to a week of vigorous, old-
fashioned campaigning.
Gary Hart tried to cut into Mondale's
union support, defending his positions
- against the Chrysler bailout and
t ~domestic content laws before a group of
union members at a Detroit tavern
' .Wednesday morning. He followed that
meeting with an economic policy
- address before the Women's Economic
b * Club of Detroit in the plush
surroundings of the Renaissance
Center where he called the federal
deficit an "economic Vietnam."
Mondale did it the traditional
Democratic way Thursday afternoon,
arriving .at Detroit Metropolitan
Airport to the tune of "Happy Days are
Here Again" and shaking dozens of
hands. Before hundreds of union
members sporting their union hats,
pins, and jackets; Mondale attacked his
opponent's voting record an labor
issues and said he would win because he
is the best man for the job.
With Michigan now behind them, the
S. candidates turn to delegate-rich
Illinois. But for one brief week,
everybody watched Michigan. It only
happens once every four years.
