BY VINCE WILK
In the dogfight for Michigan's 2nd
congressional seat, Rep. Carl Pursell
(R-Plymouth) seemed to have
abandoned the University campus in
his campaign for re-election to a
seventh term.
In the final days of the campaign,
supporters of Democratic challenger
Lana Pollack (D-Ann Arbor) were
visible throughout the campus,
passing out literature, hanging signs
and posting bills while the Pursell
campaign appeared to be relatively
unrepresented.
In one of his few appearences on
campus, Rep. Pursell briefly attended
the victory party for Students for
Bush/Quayle '88 and the University's
College Republicans last night. He
and his press secretary, Gary Cates,
answered questions concerning his
campaign.
Pursell, however, remained
optimistic about his support on
campus. "We have had a great
response on campus. In a classroom
discussion, she (Lana Pollack) was
negative, while were positive. The
whole class endorsed us by the end of
the session."
Pursell is the second ranking
Republican on the House
Education/Appropriations
Subcommittee, and could bring
important federal funds to Ann Arbor

and the University.
"(The University) is a world-class
research center," Pursell said.
"Federal funds to the University will
shortly exceed state appropriations. I
will continue to offer the leadership
to make the University a world-class
institution."
While attending a gathering of
Republican candidates for county
offices at the Holiday Inn West in
Ann Arbor last night, Pursell
commented on the coattail effect of
the Bush campaign on his. He said
"Some years I run ahead of the
President, some years I don't. It's
hard to tell."
Pollack has given him a close
fight for his congressional seat - as
of press time, the race was still too
close to call, although Pollack
strongly led in the city of Ann
Arbor. His long and hard campaign
made him seem fatigued. He said
"It's been a long campaign and I'm
glad its over."
Pursell had not had a close
election race since he first was elected
in 1976 by a margin of 344 votes.
He won each of his other races by
margins of 60-40 or more. He was a
state senator for six years before he
graduated to congress. Lana Pollack
took his seat as state senator from
Ann Arbor.

Faces wore both smiles and frowns as the
two major political parties calmly accepted the
apparent results of the election late last night.
Perry Bullard (D-Ann Arbor) was fairly
certain he had retained his seat the State House
of Representatives.
"I'm certainly pleased that the people have
reelected me. I'm planning to continue to pass
progressive legislature like I've been doing for
the past 16 years," Bullard said.
One of Bullard's opponents, Republican
Rich Birkett took his defeat gracefully.
"Considering two years ago the guy lost 35-65,
I'll be happy with anything better than that," he
said.

SPECIAL TO THE DAILY
DETROIT -- Senator Don Reigle
was elected by a landslide victory last
night as he won his eighth general
election in Michigan. The victory
celebration at Detroit's Westin Hotel
culminated as Reigle stepped up to
the podium carrying his youngest
daugther Ashley to thank his
supporters.
"The purpose of running is to put
one of these seats in the hands of the
people," said Reigle as he addressed
the cheering crowd.
With 20 percent of the precincts
reporting, Reigle had 421,709 or 59
percent, to 296,054 votes, or 41
percent for former Republican Rep.
Jim Dunn.
"I believe it's clear that our
favorite senior senator has won," said
Michigan Governor James Blanchard
who introducted Reigle.
About 200 people attended the
reception which started at 8 p.m. and

Democrat Don Riegle who won his third term as a U.S. Senator last night speaks to his
supporters at the Westin Hotel in the Detroit Renaissance Center.

continued for several hours.
Reigle, who was surrounded by
his family at the celebration, said, "I
speak for my family when I say that
we view the campaign as a mission,
and admire and respect active
participation."
"I plan to justify all of these votes
with all of the energy I have."
Jon Fink, campus coordinator for
Sudents for Reigle, said Reigle won

because he attracted people from the
right-of-center by bringing jobs to
the state. "It was simply a quesion:
look what Reigle's done for
Michigan and look what Dunn's done
for Michigan,"
Kevin Gottlieb, Reigle's
campaign chair, said the goals of
Reigle's administration are free
enterprise, creation of jobs, and
education.

When asked about the extensive
funding used for Reigle's.
advertisements - in a race where he
was clearly ahead - Gottlieb said,
"The idea behind the campaign
expenditures is to share information
with the people."
"He's a strong campaigner and
doesn't take anything for granted,"
said Senator Carl Levin (D-Mich.).
