Transcript (Cont. from page 22) judicial elections, the GOP took part in an enormous sweep by knocking off all but one Democrat judicial candidate in Harris County. As a result, not a single African American or Hispanic judge remained locally. Crimial District Judge Carl Walker told the Houston Post after his reelection lost, "It's hard to believe a county as big as Harris County would have such a white judiciary." The reason for such a GOP landslide victory could be traced directly to President Clinton and the prevailing feelings of America. Never really getting over a 40% approval rating at anytime of the year, the GOP took advantage of the president's failure to get any type of health care reform out or any major domestic policy measure out of Congress. Using his shortcomings in the domestic arena and criticizing his unpopular "flip-flop" foreign policy, the GOP was able to persuade voters across the country that the "old way of doing things" no longer sat well with the average American. Attacking old Democratic policies toward teenage mothers on welfare, "illegal aliens," affirmative action, and what they called "useless spending," the GOP captured the very important white male vote (in which over 60% voted Republican). In contrast, the Democrats were unable to bring out its historical bases with African Americans and His- panics. To the Democrats' disadvantage African Americans and Hispanics voted Republican more than ever since the turn of the century. Promises to pass measures for term limits, to get a constitutional amendment supporting school prayer, and to perform massive surgery on the current welfare system, turned out very satisfying for the GOP. The mood of the voters was such a drastic change from the one that elected Bill Clinton two years before that Republican strategist Bill Kristol told Newsweek in an interview after the elections, "It (was like) the Russian Revolution in reverse." Acording to many professional and political scientists, Kristol's comments were "right on the mark." Russell Contreas Top Photo This Page: Republican Tex Lazar lost ihe Lt.
