It once seemed such fertile territory, but as Patrick J. Buchanan goes through the desultory paces of a spent campaign here, donning union caps and Windbreakers for news brights, his hoarse appeals to the anxieties of "our working men and women" appear oddly out of place. Voicing his support for striking auto workers, marching with an electrical workers local in a South Chicago St. Patrick's Day parade, Buchanan has artfully converted from union-buster to union-brother.

The Texas governor, a young aide for George W. Bush was saying last winter, had a campaign stop in "Grand Rapids . . . or Grand Forks . . . or, well, whichever 'Grand' is in Michigan." If folks here might have taken offense back in January, they'd be thrilled with some political anonymity today. And they'd be quite happy to direct the Bush camp, or Vice President Al Gore's camp, or any other candidate's camp to any 'Grand' that isn't this one.

Using a Honda auto manufacturing plant in East Liberty, Ohio, as his backdrop, Dole on Friday pressed his campaign's argument for "fair, not free" trade. "I'm here to demonstrate how important it is to export," Dole told workers gathered in the plant's auditorium. "We want fair trade, and we have a lot of weapons on the books to gain America's access to other markets."

Voters in Michigan and Virginia are being misled into thinking the National Assn. for the Advancement of Colored People supports George W. Bush for president, the nonpartisan civil rights group complained Thursday. Two people in each state have reported receiving telephone calls, purportedly from the NAACP, that urged them to vote for the Republican presidential candidate, NAACP leaders said.

When Gov. John Engler signed a bill last year giving Michigan one of the nation's earliest Republican primaries, he did so with confidence that the vote would seal the nomination of George W. Bush and, perhaps, secure a spot in a Bush White House for himself. But now that the contest for the Republican nomination is really a contest, Engler's state could instead wind up being a catapult for Sen. John McCain of Arizona.

A day after his decisive defeat in South Carolina by George W. Bush, John McCain was back in his favorite position: underdog. And Bush was in his favorite position: front-runner. The Republican presidential contenders crisscrossed Michigan on Sunday, each man saying he had been energized by their primary battle in South Carolina and each man claiming he was the real reformer in the race.

Fighting to keep his narrow lead in this key battleground state, Vice President Al Gore on Saturday attacked George W. Bush's record in Texas while promoting his own agenda, telling supporters that America faces a clear and stark choice on Nov. 7. While his Republican opponent spent the day in Texas to prepare for the third and final presidential debate Tuesday, Gore also received mixed news in the polls, which showed Bush still ahead nationally but with Gore holding on to some key states.

Campaigning together for the first time since Labor Day, Republican presidential candidate Bob Dole and running mate Jack Kemp on Friday portrayed their Democratic foes as fearmongers and offered themselves as the alternatives with an optimistic economic agenda for a more prosperous America. Altering President Franklin D. Roosevelt's famous Depression-era line, Kemp told several thousand boisterous supporters in an airport hangar here that "the only thing Bill Clinton has to offer is fear."
