Bhush weins big in
Delaware; Forbes
.mnay soon be out

The Washington Post

WASHINGTON - The small state
of Delaware sent three large messages
yesterday to the Republican Party. Vot-
ers in its primary gave George W.
Bush a much-needed victory, con-
firmed the contagious enthusiasm for
absentee Arizona Sen. John McCain,
rnd signaled publisher Steve Forbes
hat the end may be near for his second
self-financed presidential bid..
Voter News Service exit polls
showed the Texas governor grabbing
about half the votes in a small-turnout
contest - a boost to his spirits after
the drubbing he took from McCain on
Feb. 1 in New Hampshire. McCain,
who skipped campaigning in Delaware
to focus on his Feb. 19 showdown with
0 ush in South Carolina, beat out
Forbes by a few points, according to
the exit polls. There were hints from
inside the Forbes campaign that his
withdrawal might be imminent.
Bush told reporters he was grateful
he had won "quite substantially," and
then, revealing his frustration with the
publicity bonanza McCain has enjoyed
by winning New Hampshire, he added,
"I'm confident that the news media
will put me on the cover of every one
*f the major news magazines."
McCain, campaigning in South Car-
olina, said: "I am extremely surprised
and pleased that we'd get that kind of
vote in a state we never visited."
As Delaware Republicans voted, the
ad war between Bush and McCain
became nastier, with each candidate
rolling out a new spot accusing the
other of breaking the pledge to-avoid
egative attacks and each calling the
other hypocritical. For McCain, it was
his second ad in as many days.
While the stakes in Delaware were

small -- only 12 convention delegates
- a win became more important to
Bush as a way of stemming the ero-
sion in public support in post-New
Hampshire polls. The governor had
the backing of Delaware's two top
Republicans, Sen. William Roth and
Rep. Michael Castle.
McCain's ability to win a quarter of
the votes without setting foot in the
state was a measure of the way in
which his New Hampshire victory has
resonated across the country. One
strategist unconnected to the McCain
campaign said "his support in the sub-
urbs tells me McCain might have won
here if he had campaigned." With lim-
ited funds compared to Bush and
Forbes, the Arizonan long ago
scratched Delaware from his list of tar-
get states.
The result was a clear disappoint-
ment for Forbes, the New Jersey mil-
lionaire who set his sights on the
presidency late in 1995 and devoted
probably S70 million or more of his
inherited wealth to a five-year quest
for the job. In 1996, Forbes won the
Delaware and Arizona primaries, but
was forced. to the sidelines well
before the nomination campaign
This year, he finished second to
Bush in the Iowa caucuses - anoth-
er contest McCain skipped - falling
short by 1I points. But in New
Hampshire, he was a distant third,
with 13 percent of the votes, com-
pared to McCain's 49 percent and
Bush's 30 percent.
A senior Forbes strategist, speak-
ing anonymously, said he was pre-
pared to tell Forbes, "You've run a
good race on your issues, but it's
just not there for you. It's time to
get out."

"This show is evidence that art in prison works," said
Herschell Turner, an art instructor at lonia maximum secu-
rity prison.
Many prisoners, he said, have not discovered what
they have to offer the world and participating in the
arts is a good way to begin.
Herschell said the exhibition is a source of pride for the
artists and gives them something to strive for. "This is a
challenge to do your best, and when you do your best there
is often a reward," he said.
Baxter agreed that the show and prison art programs in
general create a sense of "self-worth" for the artist when a
major institution like the University recognizes them.
