The Senate


Washington Outlook: CAPITAL WRAPUP

THE SENATE

Every election seems to produce at least one upset in the Senate. Veteran Ohio Democrat John Glenn could be 1992's surprise loser. Glenn, whose reputation of rock-solid integrity was damaged by his involvement in the Keating Five savings-and-loan scandal, is getting less than majority support in his race against Lieutenant Governor Mike DeWine. A recent Political/Media Research poll shows Glenn leading in his bid for a fourth term by an uncomfortably close 47%-40% margin. On the Republican side, Missouri's Christopher S. Bond may also be in trouble. He holds only a 49%-41% lead over little-known challenger Geri Rothman-Serot. Meanwhile, in Georgia, former Peace Corps director Paul D. Coverdell has been gaining on Democratic Senator Wyche Fowler Jr., though Fowler still holds a 46%-to-32% lead.Edited by Stephen H. Wildstrom
