DETROIT (AP) - Mayor Dennis
Archer, whose first term brought a series
of development projects and a renewed
sense of hope, yesterday easily won four
more years to continue trying to rebuild
Detroit from a symbol of urban despair
Oto an urban success story.
Archer had 83 percent of the vote to
17 percent for state Rep. Ed Vaughn
with 100 percent of the city's 819
precincts reporting in the non-partisan
election.
"This election was nothing less than a
referendum for the people who work
silently and anonymously each and every
day to make our homes and neighbor-
hoods better," Archer told supporters.
* "Tonight, Detroiters gave new mean-
ing to the popular song, 'Ain't No
Stopping Us Now.' We're on the move
we've got momentum and we've
come a long way. We have a long way to
go - but tonight we celebrate."
Vaughn, speaking to about 50 sup-
porters at a coffee shop, wouldn't con-
cede defeat as preliminary returns came
in earlier last night.

"I didn't work hard enough," said
Koster, who secured 992 compared with
TIerrell's 1,562 votes. "I was obviously not
in tune with the voters of the 3rd Ward."
"[t was a good experience," said LSA
,sophomore Michael Enright, a 4th
Ward Libertarian candidate. "I will
robably run again for something in the
iuture, but not soon."
A short-lived technical glitch in vote
4reporting over cable access television
showed Enright in second place in his
ward, beating Democratic challenger
Tony Reffells by more than 100 votes.
"I didn't believe it, I wasn't totally
sure,' Enright said late last night. "I
thought it wduld be nice if it were true,
,,eally inice."
Later in the evening, Enright's score of

Jaye nabs Senate election

DETROIT (AP) - State Rep. David Jaye narrowly won
among Republicans while Becky Higbie won the Democratic
race in yesterday's special primary election to fill the state
Senate seat of the late Doug Carl.
With 137 of 138 precincts reporting, Jaye had 36 percent
of the vote in the GOP primary. Maria Carl, Carl's widow, had
3 1 percent, while former state Rep. Sal Rocca had 23 percent
and Rep. Alvin Kukuk had 6 percent.
Jaye led Maria Carl by about 1,300 votes, 9,870 to 8,562.
All other Republican candidates besides Rocca and Kukuk
had 1 percent of the vote or less.
Jaye has been in the newspaper headlines recently for
his aggressive stance against affirmative action. He is one
of four representatives who were instrumental in soliciting
students to bring a lawsuit against the University chal-
lenging its admissions policies. The lawsuit was filed last
month.
In the Democratic primary, Higbie had 62 percent of the
vote, while Jim Ayres had 17 percent, Thomas Gagne had 12
percent and C.L. Hargrove had 8 percent. Higbie had 3,440
votes, while all other candidates had fewer than 950.
Pre-primary campaign reports for Higbie, of Shelby

Township, showed she had raised nearly S 17,000 and spent
nearly S 12,000 by Oct. 19. A report filed by Ayres showed he
had raised and spent nothing.
Republicans hoped to come out of the contentious primary
with a candidate strong enough to hold onto the seat in the
Nov. 25 special general election. That would allow them to
keep their 22-16 Senate margin.
The 12th state Senate District is strongly Republican, so
Jaye could have the edge in the general election.
But he also was the most controversial Republican in the
race. A self-described "junkyard dog" and arch-conserva-
tive lawmaker, Jaye missed few chances to promote him-
self or attack his opponents in the weeks leading up to the
primary.
The Washington Township lawmaker had raised just over
S49,000 before the election and spent nearly $17,000, cam-
paign records showed. Much of the money went for campaign
literature critical of Rocca.
Some observers speculated that a Jaye victory might make
it harder for Republicans to hold the seat in the general elec-
tion. If he wins there, he could roil the party's ranks in the
Senate.

Detroit Mayor Dennis Archer secured a second term last night in a landslide
victory, winning more than 80 percent of the popular vote.

ELECTIONS
Continued from Page 1
had built "great momentum" for 1998.
Jim Gilmore was elected governor of
Virginia, Mayor Rudolph Giuliani won
a second term in New York, and Vito
Fossella became the congressperson
from Staten Island.
Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad, chair of the
GOP governors, said Whitman's election
was so close because of the abortion
issue. She had vetoed a ban on late-term
abortions, stirring conservative wrath.
Gingrich said it wasn't just that, but
lack of a clear message. "The campaign
was in a muddle," said the speaker, who
in 1996 had suggested Whitman
belonged on a short list of vice presi-
dential prospects.
In this off-year election, nine states
featured just 43 statewide, ballot mea-
sures. Ballot measures in the Pacific
Northwest drew the most national
attention this year, as voters pondered
social issues simmering in many cor-
ners of the country.
Washington state's ballot attracted
especially keen interest, with measures

to ban workplace discrimination against
gays and to legalize marijuana for medi-
cinal use along with the gun control and
health plan questions. In Washington,
where gun ownership is common, voters
defeated stricter gun controls, 69 percent
to 31 percent. Another measure, to allow
patients to retain their doctors when they
change health plans, also failed.
On another hotly debated issue,
Oregonians rejected an effort to throw
out the nation's only assisted suicide law
yesterday, three years after they first
gave physicians legal permission to help
patients take their lives. Opponents
promised to battle on in the courts.
In Houston, voters seemed ready to
stick with an affirmative action that bene-
fits women and minorities in city contract-
ing and hiring. With 50 percent of the vote
counted, a proposal to junk the program
was lagging 53 percent to 47 percent.
While some ballot initiatives were at
issue nationwide, some states held key
candidate races.
Gov. Howard Dean of Vermont, chair
of the Democratic governors, said run-
ning close, let alone defeating, a front-
rank Republican was a boost for the

next elections.
Republicans swept the other top prizes.
In Virginia, Gilmore, who resigned
as attorney general to run for governor,
trounced Democratic Lt. Gov. Don
Beyer on the strength of a tax cut
pledge even Democrats deemed a mas-
terful campaign stroke - repeal of n
unpopular levy on automobiles, which
had come due for payment just a month
before election day.
With the vote count nearing comple-
tion, it was Gilmore 56 percent, Beyer 42.
"A terrific victory," Gingrich said in
an interview with The Associated Press.
"it means taxes continue to be in
important issue," Branstad said.
Gilmore's overwhelming victory pro-
pelled the Republican ticket to the elec-
tion of a GOP lieutenant governor, John
Hager, and thus to control of the evenly
divided state Senate, where he will cast
the tie-breaking vote.
"This race in Virginia will be a model
for other races next year" said Jim
Nicholson, the Republican national
chair. He said people are fed up with
taxes, and when Republican campaign
on the issue, they get enormous results.

399 suddenly dropped to 76. He finished
a distant third with 76 votes compared
with Reffells' 943 and Putman's 1.420.
Candidates said the low turnout
played a part in their campaigns.
"Most of the people who have come
to the polls are people who have done
their homework," Putman said. Because
of the off-year election and its inherent
low voter turnout, the campaign was
kept to the issues and not a "popularity
contest," he said.
Voter turnout was surprisingly high
in the 5th Ward, where Councilmember
Chris Kolb, a Democrat, drew 2,111
votes despite his uncontested race.
"The fact that Chris Kolb is an
uncontested candidate and still has over
2,000 votes .... If I were in his ward, I
probably would not run against him,"
Putman said.
Kolb, who was narrowly defeated in

last year's mayoral race, is widely expect-
ed to run for mayor again next year.
Kolb refused to con firm that a mayoral
run was in his future, but when address-
ing fellow Democrats said, "We have that
big seat at the head of the table that we
are going to take back next year."
Also on the ballot were two local refer-
endums. Proposal A, which passed, was a
millage that provides funding for Ann
Arbor's city parks until the year 2002.
Proposal B, which failed by a large
margin, was a referendum that would
allow the sale of bonds to build the Leslie
Science Center, an environmental educa-
tional facility geared toward youths.
"The vote on B really hurt our
chances in Wards 2 and 4," Scott said.
"I'm hopeful we can still do something
to help the kids."
