In stunning victories, GOP swee&ps

New York, New Jersey,

V irginia

Republicans swept to three dra-
matic election victories Tuesday,
wresting the top jobs in New Jersey,
Virginia and New York City from
Democratic hands.
Rudolph Giuliani, a forner fed-
eral prosecutor, narrowly defeated
David Dinkins, New York's first
Black mayor, in a rematch of their
contest four years ago.
Republican Christie Whitman nar-
rowly beat Jim Florio in New Jersey,
dealing the incumbent -- and his
Democratic Party -- a stunning de-
feat after Florio had appeared headed
for victory. It wasn't even close in
{Virginia, where Republican George
Allen coasted to victory, ending 12
years of Democratic rule in Rich-
T:Those losses were yet another
embarrassment for President Clinton,
,whose party has lost two Senate seats,
tbe Los Angeles mayor'sjob and now
two governorships since his victory a
year ago.
w "We did it," Whitman told apost-
midnight rally at her headquarters.
Moments later, Florio conceded.
As a cantankerous off-year politi-
;al season came to a close, ballot
,issues around the nation tested the

public mood about crime and taxes -
and offered an early look at the cli-
mate awaiting 1994 candidates.
Dramatic turnover in the nation's
city halls was a sure bet, as Boston,
Detroit, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Miami
and Minneapolis led a long list of
open mayoral contests and the incum-
bent in Hartford, Conn., was ousted.
In all, there were races or ballot
questions in 29 states. In a warning to
incumbents everywhere, term limits
were endorsed by voters in Maine and
New York City.
Other statewide propositions in-
cluded a school voucher proposal in
California and a tax repeal in Wash-
ington state. In Cincinnati and
Lewiston, Maine, voters repealed lo-
cal gay rights laws.
Virginia's polls closed first, and
Allen's victory over Democrat Mary
Sue Terry gave the GOP the night's
first major trophy. With 26 percent of
the Virginia vote counted, Allen was
comfortably ahead with 58 percent to
Terry's 41 percent.
Giuliani expressed early confi-
dence during the New York City may-
oral contest.
"We're going to win this elec-
tion," the former federal prosecutor
said as he voted in New York's Upper


East Side.
Dinkins also forecasted victory.
"I think it will be a close contest,
but I expect to emerge victorious,"
Dinkins said as he voted at a high
school near Gracie Mansion.
Next door in New Jersey, chal-
lenger Whitman rode a mountain bi-
cycle to her polling place. A cluster of
students greeted Florio at his precinct
in Princeton. Florio's $2.8 billion 1990
tax hike was the paramount issue in
that race.
Terry and Allen both voted early
and then headed outside to shake a
few last hands, and appeal for a few
more votes.
At stake in the governor races was
the 31-17 Democratic edge in state-
house control, a lopsided advantage
the party hoped to carry into 1994.
when 36 states elect governors. Alaska
and Connecticut have independent
Another question to be answered
in those contests: whether the good
fortune women candidates enjoyed in
1992 would carry over. Both Terry
and Whitman sought to be the first
woman governor of their states.
Dinkins' loss in New York won't
do much to the overwhelming edge
Democrats enjoy at city halls. In June,
Republican Richard Riordan was
elected mayor in Los Angeles, the
nation's second-biggest city; this
Giuliani win puts the biggest city in
GOP hands for the first time in nearly
a quarter-century.

Texas voters endorsed $1 billion
in bonds to build more prisons while
Washington voters weighed whether
most three-time felons should face
mandatory life without parole.
The crime and tax debates col-
lided in California, where voters chose
whether to adopt a permanent
halfpenny sales tax and dedicate the
money to local police and fire depart-

David Dinkins lost a narrow race in yesterday's New York mayoral election.
