For at least another two years, in-
cumbent councilman Dick DeCamp
will continue to represent the UK area
on the Lexington-Fayette Urban County
Council. DeCamp beat Lexington ac-
tivist Don Pratt by almost 13 percent of
the vote in the 3rd District. which en-
compasses much of the off-campus
housing surrounding UK.

DeCamp received 56.6 percent of the vote, with 1,666
votes. Pratt received 43.4 percent of the vote, with 1,275
votes. Two write-in votes were cast in the 3rd District.
UK DeCamp said he plans to work more closely with

“We’re right on the edge of doing some things that
will benefit the community and UK‘ he said. His plans
include “a more livable downtown” to attract college stu-
dents and a financial assistance fund for staff and facul-
ty who want to buy houses near UK.

In a statement released to the media, Pratt said he
would be leaving Kentucky.

“Other dreams of mine will now become a priority,
and I will pursue them, hopefully more successfully than
the seat of 3rd District council," Pratt said in the state-
ment. “However, those dreams will not be fulfilled in
Lexington or in Kentucky"

DeCamp said he had not anticipated how many

votes Pratt would receive.

“In politics you never know,” DeCamp said. “You
can never take any good competitor for granted.”

DeCamp said he raised about $20,000 for the race,
$15,000 of which he spent on leaflets. campaign costs,
and TV and newspaper ads. Pratt said he spent his own
money and tried not to spend more than $1,000.

“The fact that DeCamp did so poorly against an op-
ponent who had very few resources ought to make him
think twice about his strategies,” Voss said.

Voss also said he thought much of DeCamp’s opposi-
tion stemmed from his support of the Lexington Area
Party Plan, which was a contentious issue last year be
tween students and the council.

“He’ll have to find ways to make that University vote

Republican Incumbent Jeb Bush, President George W. Bush's
brother, won Florida's gubernatorial race


WASHINGTON ~ Democrats broke a 25-year Re-
publican hold on the Illinois governor‘s office and took
back Pennsylvania Tuesday as they sought to reclaim
a majority of the nation’s executive mansions. Florida
Gov. Jeb Bush defeated Democrat Bill McBride in a
high-profile victory for the GOP.

As 36 states elected governors. one incumbent was
ousted W South Carolina Gov. Jim Hodges. a one-term
Democrat. lost to former GOP Rep. Mark Sanford.

Democrats led in GOP country of Michigan and
Kansas, while Republicans. hoping to minimize the
shrinking of their ‘ 7-21 edge. held onto New York and
Massachusetts. The GOP also led in Texas.

In Illinois. Democratic Rep. Rod Blagojevich defeat-
ed Republican Jim Ryan in a race that linked Ryan to
the scandal-tainted single term of GOP Gov. George
Ryan — no relation who chose not to seek reelection.

Pennsylvania Democrat Ed Rendell. former mayor
of Philadelphia. defeated GOP Attorney General Mike

In a marquee race. Gov. Bush had extensive cam—
paign help from his brother. Early in the night, Presi-
dent Bush called to “congratulate him for a big victo-
ry.‘ White House press secretary Ari Fleischer said.

GOP businessman Mitt Romney defeated state Trea-
surer Shannon O‘Brien in heavily Democratic Massa-
chusetts to continue 12 years of Republican control.

New York Gov. George Pataki easily turned back a
challenge from Comptroller H. Carl McCall. the only
black ever elected to statewide office there.

In Maryland where there was another top contest.
Democratic Lt. Gov. Kathleen Kennedy Townsend was
seeking to become the first member of the Kennedy
family to serve as a governor. but lost to Republican
Rep. Bob Ehrlich.


“.5. House

0.5. Senate






Republican candidate Elizabeth Dole won a Senate seat in In Florida, Katherine Harris. the former secretary at state,
North Carolina. won I House seat.


WASHINGTON Republicans recaptured Senate
seats held by conservative icons in both Carolinas and
New Hampshire while Democrats kept a once-endan-
gered seat in New Jersey as the GOP fought to wrest
control of the chamber from their Democratic rivals.

Republican Rep. John Sununu was victorious in
New Hampshire and will replace the man he defeated
in a bitter GOP primary as each party refused to relin-
quish seats that the other coveted in the battle for Sen-
ate control.

In North Carolina. Republican Elizabeth Dole won
the right to succeed the retiring Sen. Jesse Helms. bat-
ting down a challenge by Democrat Erskine Bowles.
the one-time chief of staff to President Clinton.

In South Carolina. four-term GOP Rep. Lindsey
Graham will replace outgoing Sen. Strom Thurmond
after besting Democrat Alex Sanders. the former Col—
lege of Charleston president.

For their part. Democrats held the New Jersey
seat that will be relinquished by Sen. Robert Torricelli.
who abruptly ended his campaign last month after
ethics violations seemed to end his chances of being
re—elected. Returning in his place will be Frank Laut-
enberg. who retired two years ago after an 18-year Sen-
ate career.

As America decided which party would steer the
Senate for the next two years. the Democrats held con-
trol by 50-49. including a Democratic-leaning indepen~
dent. That excludes Dean Barkley. the independent
named Monday by Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura to re-
place Wellstone for a postelection session of Congress
that begins next week.

With Republicans holding the White House and
heading toward recapturing control of the House. the
Senate seemed to stand as the Democrats‘ lone lever of
power in Washington.

Lamar Alexander. the former education secretary
and one-time Tennessee governor. was elected to the
Senate from his state, replacing GOP Sen. Fred
Thompson. who retired.

Virginia's John Warner. a Republican power on
the Senate Armed Services Committee. won his fifth
six—year term in a race in which his popularity was un»
derlined by the failure of Democrats to even field a


WASHINGTON —— Republicans turned aside cru-
cial Democratic challenges in region after region
Tuesday and were headed toward extending their
eight-year control of the House of Representatives.

Democratic hopes of regaining the chamber
dimmed as Republicans chalked up wins or were
leading in many races earlier seen as toss-ups. Amer-
icans voted to fill all 435 House seats, but only a tenth
of them were deemed to be competitive.

Democrats needed a net gain of seven seats to re-
claim the control they lost in 1994. But as returns
rolled in. it seemed likely they would miss the mark.

Republican Rep. Shelley Moore Capito won a sec-
ond term in West Virginia. defeating Democratic
challenger Jim Humphreys, a wealthy lawyer, in what
was the most expensive congressional race in the
country, with $9 million raised and spent.

Rep. Nancy Johnson, R-Conn.. defeated Rep. Jim
Maloney. D-Conn., and Rep. Charles Pickering. R-
Miss., defeated Rep. Ronnie Shows. D-Miss.

Meanwhile. in a victory that was not a surprise,
Katherine Harris, former Florida secretary of state
and a GOP heroine for her role in the 2000 presiden-
tial election. coasted to election for a House seat in
Florida representing the Sarasota area.

House Speaker Dennis Hastert. R-Ill., and Minori-
ty Leader Dick Gephardt, D-Mo., coasted to easy re-

GOP businessman Chris Chocola was in a Indi-
ana House district. Democratic Rep. Julia Carson won
over her GOP challenger. Brose McVey. in another In-
diana race.

In a Gulf Coast Florida race. incumbent Democ-
ratic Rep. Karen Thurmond lost her seat to Republi-
can challenger Ginny Brown-Waite.

While the president‘s party traditionally loses
seats in mid-term elections. Democrats had to buck
another trend after picking up seats in three previous
congressional elections —» in 1996, 1998 and 2000. No
party has gained seats in four successive elections
since the 19305.

It was
York, L.A.
or Philly
down in

— Pusha T. ,
member of Clipse

Robbie Clark

Their blunt lyrics tell of
life on the street and how they
used to hustle there. Their de-
but hip-hop album recently
went gold. They're also going
to be performing for Lexington
music fans tonight.

The rap duo Clipse is
bringing its Virginia based
sound of hip~hop from their al<
bum Lord Willin‘ to Varsity
Blue at 8 pm. The group Clipse.
produced by the Neptunes. is a
combination of brothers Gene
and Terrence Thorton. whose
stage names are Malice and
Pusha T.

“We write all our lyrics,"
Pusha T. said. “They [Nep-
tunes] put the music down."

In a time when new hip-
hop camps are challenging the
standard sounds of strict East
or West Coast performers,
Clipse's music takes on a differ-
ent mold to reflect their Virgin-
ian lifestyles.

“We’re coming out of Vir-
ginia," Pusha T. said. “We get
the Virginian street music
scene down.”

Coming from a region
where rap music and artists
are not normally associated
with has proved some difficult
challenges for the pair. said
Pusha T.

“It was always New York.
L.A. or Philly Nobody was
looking down in Virginia."


The rap group Clipse will perform at 8 pan. at Varsity Blue tonight.

With nobody in the music
industry paying attention to
their area. Clipse was able to
hone their own distinct style of
music, said Pusha T.

“This is our own genre.

Let It Rain

By Elizabeth Va Kama

Tracy Chapman re-
leased her sixth album Let
It Rain, marking another
achievement in a 15 year

Once again, Chapman
impresses her audience
with laid-back beats, mel~
low tunes and great lyrics
from a voice that radiates
pureness along with sim-

Let It Rain features 12
songs that allow the listen-
er to relax and meditate,
letting all stresses fade
away into the background.
Listeners are invited to
clear their thoughts, chat
with a long lost friend or
just sit back.

In the title song listen-
ers can relate to times
when they have needed re-
assurance or support to
know that life can get bet-

In the track “Another
Sun," Chapman grooves to
an edgier, blues beat that
depicts her turning her
back and smugly walking
away from trouble.

A wide variety of mu-
sical instruments make
this album unique. Chap-
man does not rely on
shocking lyrics or ear-
shredding screams to get
her words and feelings

Instead she scatters
such instruments as a clar-
inet. piano, organ, violin,
ukulele, cello and acoustic
guitar throughout the mu-

Music Reviews


“You’re the One" uses
hand claps and a tam-
bourine to reassure her
prospective partner that he
is the one despite what oth-
er people may say.

In “Say Hallelujah” lis-
teners can join in the
gospel-like rhythm, clap
their hands and snap their
fingers to the beat.

Chapman’s mesmeriz-
ing voice remains clear
and understandable
throughout the album.
Lyrics are easy to under-
stand, and relate to prob-
lems or situations that lis-
teners may encounter or
think about each day. The
words Chapman croons
linger in your head hours
after listening instead of
just being forgotten.

Chapman keeps listen—

ers in an emotionally
charged album.

For those who already
love Chapman. then Let It
Rain will not be a disap-
pointment. Fans will once
again be satisfied.

For those who have
never listened to Chap
man, they will become en-
tranced by its simplistic
lyrics which create an in-
tense emotional trip and
forever remain timeless.

Kings of MAC Tourne
defend soccer dynasty

Three and counting: Cats seeking
fourth straight MAC Championship

By Alex Williams



Senior captain JD. Stephenson
gathered the UK men‘s soccer team into
a huddle at practice this week.

He gave the team a pep talk to re-
mind them how important the upcom—
ing weekend is.

It‘s the last chance for the Cats as
they attempt to accomplish a feat no
other Mid-American Conference team
has done: win four straight conference
tournament championships.

And if Stephenson has anything to
do with it, the practice won't be the
team's last.

The Cats have an impressive 8-0
record in the last three conference tour-
naments and would like no more than
to earn a fourth MAC title and NCAA
tournament berth.

Coach lan Collins said the team has
battled adversity all season. and despite
its 9-8-0 regular season record still has the
talent to rewrite the record books.

“It‘s been a strange year," Collins
said. “But the beauty of this tourna
ment is that we can move
