MeCain to shift
focus in Mich.

y YaelKohen
ily Staff Reporter
EAST LANSING - As Arizona
Sen. John McCain began his final
campaign push in Michigan yesterday,
ie has been trying harder to define
himself as a "reform conservative"
Losing to Texas Gov. George W.
Bush by I 1 points in South Carolina
on Saturday has made Michigan a cru-
cial stepping stone in securing the
presidential nomination.
"We thought that an overtly positive
ampaign would prevail over an overt-
ly negative one and we were wrong,"
McCain's Campaign Manager Rick
Davis said.
"There will be more active contrast
so he won't get defined" by Bush,
Davis said, adding that the campaign
"didn't work hard enough to define
ourselves against these charges,
jainst his Republicanism," Davis
ld.
McCain will allocate S2.5 million to
new advertisements to gain support in
the upcoming primaries across the
nation, Davis said.
Concern regarding McCain's loss in
South Carolina has led some to worry
that the results will effect Michigan's
primary tomorrow.
But supporters who crowded into the
Michigan State University Intramural
orts Circle gym said they do not look
South Carolina as an indicator of
which republican candidate Michigan
voters will choose tomorrow.
McCain's Chief Strategist Mike
Murphy said he thinks that Michigan
voters will "ignore" South Carolina's
result and added that Delaware hasn't
appeared to affect the campaign either.
The latest Detroit News poll taken
between Feb. 15-17 has McCain lead-
Bush by 2 points in Michigan.
The win in the Michigan primary
will be meaningful, Davis said.

"Michigan is going to be the first
industrial state that tests Bush and
McCain," University political science
assistant Prof. Margaret Howard said.
McCain should expect a tough fight
in Michigan with Gov. John Engler
supporting Bush. Engler, who is also
Bush's state campaign chair, has mus-
tered strong Republican support for
the Texas governor. But Murphy said
"organization is the most overrated
thing in politics," adding "I don't think
any governor anywhere can deliver
much."
If McCain loses Michigan, then
winning the California primary will
become more crucial.
McCain plans to continue cam-
paigning in Michigan today before he
returns to his home state for the Ari-
zona primary tomorrow.
"Given that Arizona is McCain's
home state, McCain sure doesn't want
to lose Arizona," Howard said.
But McCain has not campaigned in
Arizona, which he has represented in
Congress for the last 17 years, to the
same degree as in other states.
"He's been focusing on states that
don't know him as well," Arizona
McCain spokesman Douglas Cole said.
McCain has attracted Democrats
and independents in the state and
many Democrats plan to vote in the
tomorrow 's primary instead of the
March I1 Democratic caucus.
MSU freshman David Connolly said
that although he considers himself a
Democrat, he plans to vote for McCain
in the primary.
"I like McCain out of all four,' he
said.
But Democrats who vote in the prima-
ry cannot vote in the March 11I caucus.
"It is against Michigan Democratic
Party rules for a Democrat to vote in
the primary and then in the caucus,"
Michigan Democratic Party
spokesman Dennis Denno said.

Michigamua and University administration,
he may return to campus to join the SCC
members and spend the night at the tower
before spring break.
He added that he will encourage promi-
nent national civil rights leaders to visit the
seventh floor of the Michigan Union.
"There are some of us that are available to
do what's necessary," Sharpton said. "I want
Martin Luther King III to come. I want
Jesse Jackson to come. I want Dick Gregory
to come."
Michigamua spokesman Nick Delgado
said he and other members of the group
attended Sharpton's speech.
"Reverend Sharpton gave the idea that
you had to define yourself and we whole-

heartedly agree with that," Delgado said.
"Michigamua cannot allow the students in"
the tower to define who we are," he said,
adding that his group was labeled as racist
and similar to the Klu Klux Klan by Sharp-
ton.
"Accusations like that only propagate hate
and that in itself is dangerous," Delgado
said.
Colleen Kendall, a Native American Ann
Arbor resident, who helped organize the
rally, said the event's purpose was "to show
that there's community backing to this this
situation. We are 100 percent behind them."
SCC spokesman Joe Reilly said he was
encouraged by the rally and Sharpton's visit.
"There's been a lot of frustration due to a
severe lack of response from the administra-
tion," Reilly said. "That frustration was
transformed into a good feeling."

spilled out of the Michigan State University Intra-
mural Sports Circle gym earlier in the day.
Attempting to bring an end to this isolation, after the
rally, McCain told the Daily that he feels his commit-
ment to education will resonate with students.
McCain outlined his plan to increase funding for
higher education and expand financial aid resources
for students who cannot adequately meet, the rising
costs of a college education.
Speaking specifically of land grant universities
including Michigan State, the senator said he would
like to see more funding for these institutions.
"At land grant universities ... where the cost of edu-
cation is relatively low, they deserve more money and
more support."
As for tuition assistance, McCain said he would
make Federal Pell Grants available to more students.
"Obviously we need to expand eligibility for Pell
Grants and also to help students repay their loans," he

nse to McCain's comment

Bush retorted by saying that
first candidate to list contri-
almost real time on the Inter-

net. Bush received some heat for speak-
ing in South Carolina at Bob Jones Uni-
versity -- a school that prohibits
interracial dating and has been accused
of anti-Catholicism. Rep. Peter King (R-
New York) announced yesterday that he
was moving his endorsement from Bush
to McCain due to the speech.
Professing that he is not anti-
Catholic, Bush noted that his brother,
Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, is Catholic.
Bush also said he would not prohibit
interracial dating.

Former President Ronald Reagan,
and McCain's advisors have visited
Bob Jones before, Bush said. "I think
that this effort to try to put an associa-
tion on policies of Bob Jones is a cam,
paign tactic that we're not going to:,
stand for," said Engler, who is
Catholic. While the Michigan primary
will clearly have a large influence on
the overall outcome of the race for the
Republican nomination, Engler said. A
loss in Michigan would probably not
stop McCain, he said

said.
Students demonstrating financial need receive Pell
Grants, which are not repaid to the federal government.
Student loan repayment is an issue with which the
senator said he is particularly concerned. He favors
a more lenient policy toward collecting them.
McCain said he would like to strengthen the connec-
tion between civil service and student loans. "I favor
expanding military opportunity ... plus other service
incentives, which would be rewarded by education
benefits ... and obviously forgiveness of loans or
ways of repaying loans done by service to the coun-
try," he said.
McCain also said he supports an issue that directly
affects the University of Michigan - affirmative
action.
"My stand is that I support affirmative action, I do
not support quotas. I think quotas demean the indi-
vidual and the institution. I believe we can provide
help, assistance, training to get people up on a level
playing field but I want to see a basis of need and
economic origin."

McCain did not visibly express disconcertion over
his loss to Bush in the South Carolina primary Satur-
day. "We took a little hit yesterday, but we've taken hits
before and we'll bounce back," he said.
McCain attributes his defeat to the massive special
interest funding of his opponents. "I think there was
an overwhelming amount of money including special
interest and tobacco money," he said.
Because tomorrow's Republican Primary in-
Michigan is open to all registered voters, many polit-
ical analysts have said there is potential for Democ-
rats to "raid" the primary by voting for McCain to
ensure a Bush loss.
The senator said he does not support this practice,
but failed to condemn it.
"Obviously I welcome their votes, anyone is wel-
come to vote,' he said.
As of now, McCain said he has no plans to drop
out of the race -- even if he is not victorious in
Michigan.
"The next step will be Washington," he said,
which will hold its primary on Feb. 29.
