Engler has never lost an election.
He was elected to the state House in
1970, using an assignment in a col-
lege political science class to plan his
first campaign. He was re-elected four
times before running for state Senate
in 1982. He became majority leader
in the Senate in 1984, and used that
position to spring into the governor's
chair in 1990.

Engler, coming off his own elec-
tion victory against Democrat Howard
Wolpe, had nothing but compliments
for the new U.S. senator.
"This has been a historic night for
Republicans in Michigan and across
the nation," Engler said. He called
Abraham "one-of-a-kind" and an as
set to the party.
"We're going to keep Michigan
moving forward," Engler promised.
Abraham, who was deputy chief
of staff to Vice President Dan Quayle
and co-chaired the National Republi-
can Congressional Committee for the
last two years, succeeds retiring Sen.
Donald Riegle and becomes the first
GOP senator from Michigan since
Robert Griffin left office in 1979.
The Michigan seat was targeted
by both parties in their furious battle
for control of the Senate, where the
Democrats' 56-44 majority became a

In Maine, Rep. OlympiaJ. Snowe,
a Republican, defeated Rep. Thomas
H. Andrews, a Democrat, to win the
seat being vacated by Senate Major-
ity Leader George J. Mitchell.
Democrats held Senate seats in
Maryland, Connecticut and West Vir-
ginia. But Republicans maintained
control of seats in Missouri, Florida,
Indiana, Delaware and Vermont.
Democrats had hoped for possible
upsets in the latter two states.
Republicans had officially won
193 seats at 1:30 a.m. and were lead-
ing in 33 others, a trend that would
give them 226 seats - more than
enough to control the 435-seat House.
The 193 victories were more than the
party had won since they held 201 in
the 85th Congress.
House Speaker Thomas Foley (D-
Wash.) was locked in an extremely
tight race at press time.
Rep. Dan Glickman (D-Kan.), an
18-year veteran and chairman of the
House Intelligence Committee, was
ambushed by Todd Tiahrt, a state
senator who got support from gun
owners and right-to-life groups.
Rep. Tom Barlow of Kentucky
was defeated by Republican Ed
Whitfield, a former state represen-
tative. Rep. Leslie Byrne of Vir-
ginia lost to Republican Tom Davis,
a county official. Rep. Don Johnson

"The fact of the matter is in our
wonderful democracy, there are no
permanent defeats and there is going
to be another election and there will
be other opportunities to push our
agenda and our priorities and move
this country forward," Carr said.
"It's an experience you just hav

Todd Stabenow, a University first-
year student and son of losing Demo-
cratic Lt. Gov. candidate Debbie
Stabenow, said he did not believe this
election is a mandate.
"I do not thing that this is a conser-
vative trend in Michigan," Stabenow
said. He said it was because of
national economic recovery, not Re-
publican economic policies, that are
responsible for the economy.
"In 1996, it going to be a different
story," he said optimistically.
