N ATTINIXWcR I.f

McCain caught in mx of fiance
reform talk, big-tie ndraising

SASHINGTON (AP)-- From the campaign trail
where he decries the Washington money chase, Sen.
John McCain beams his image into the ballroom of a
capital hotel where corporate lobbyists are helping
raise as much as $500,000 for his presidential bid.
They are the same lobbyists who press McCain's
Senate Commerce Committee to act on legislation
that affects their corporate clients - AT&T, United
Airlines and other giants.
McCain, who is running on a pledge to change the
way campaigns are financed, finds himself having to
u the system he criticizes in order to fund his pres-
i tial bid.
His Washington fundraiser yesterday - where
tickets went for S500 and $1,000 - was the center-
piece of a one-day series of events expected to bring
as much as S500,000 into his campaign treasury.
McCain was actually campaigning in South Car-

olina, but he was speaking in Washington and 17
other locations via satellite. In addition, 500 people
paid $100 apiece to chat with him over the Internet.
The events have given his chief rival for the
Republican presidential nomination, Texas Gov.
George W. Bush, a line of attack.
But Ellen Miller, director of the campaign finance
advocacy group Public Campaign, said, "John
McCain is the perfect example of someone caught in
a bad system. He really has no other way to run for
office."
McCain himself, asked about the propriety of rais-
ing money from the lobbyists, said, "They are sup-
porting my candidacy because they're sick and tired
of the system in Washington today."
He said the contributions "are in keeping with the
reforms I want to make."
Like other congressional committee chairmen,

McCain is following the well-worn path of raising
campaign money from the industries that come
under his panel's jurisdiction. Three-fourths of the
44 members of McCain's "victory committee" for
yesterday's fund-raiser were lobbyists, most of them
with interests before th Commerce Committee.
The list includes lobbyists from CSX and Union
Pacific, as well as the president of the Association of
American Railroads. McCain has introduced legisla-
tion to renew the Surface Transportation Board,
which regulates the railroad industry.
The railroad association president, Edward Ham-
berger, has known McCain for 20 years, said Steve
Hart, senior vice president for policy and communi-
cations.
The victory committee also includes lobbyists
from the Fox television network and the National
Association of Broadcasters.

Students
ALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Black
college students and hundreds of other
critics of Gov. Jeb Bush's plan to get rid
of affirmative action packed Capitol
hearing rooms yesterday to denounce
the effort as an attack on women and
minorities.
Bush did not attend the third and final
set of hearings on his "One Florida"
proposal, which would eliminate race
and gender as factors in university
amissions and the awarding of state
contracts. He watched some of the hear-
ings on closed-circuit television in his
office.
"The One Florida plan will not
work,' said Anthony Viegbesie, presi-

protest 'One Florida Initiative'

dent of the Tallahassee branch of the
National Association for the Advance-
ment of Colored People. "The One
Florida plan is anti-minority, anti-
women, anti-poverty and must be
killed."
The Republican governor has insisted
the plan would improve diversity in edu-
cation and contracting jobs by increas-
ing outreach efforts to minorities
historically shut out of opportunities.
Students who take a difficult enough
course load and finish in the top 20 per-
cent of their high school graduating
class would be guaranteed admission to
some state universities.
"The athletes that are needed to win'

football games a ill be included in that
20 percent whether they have the grades
or not." said Brenda Holt, a high school
teacher in Quincy. "If the government in
this state does not protect us from the
good-old-boy system, then who does'?"
The legislators hearing testimony
were split into two groups to accommo-
date the crowd. About 1,200 people
attended, and 100 spoke. Each speaker
was limited to three minutes.
"I think the governor has his heart in
the right place, but has been misguided
in his approach so far," said Kelvin
Lawrence, a sophomore at predominant-
ly black Florida A&M University.
For weeks, leaders in Florida's black

community have protested against the
plan. In January, two black lawmakers
staged a 25-hour sit-in inside Lt. Gov.
Frank Brogan's office, demanding that
Bush rescind his executive order to put
One Florida in place.
Bush refused, but he agreed to three
public hearings on the plan. The previ-
ous two, in Tampa and Miami, also
were dominated by critics.
Then this week, whiile 1,000 students
protested in the Capitol rotunda, Bush
met with four students from Florida
A&M and agreed to add a three-year
..accountability measure" to make sure
enough minorities are admitted into
state universities.
