Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton revived his presidential hopes in Georgia by combining overwhelming support among blacks with the blue-collar, downscale base he built in the first primaries, a Los Angeles Times exit poll found Tuesday. On the Republican side, conservative commentator Patrick J. Buchanan's most potent weapon against President Bush continues to be discontent with the nation's basic direction, not ideological dissatisfaction, the poll found.

Last week, he roared into Eastman in a huge van emblazoned with his campaign posters and bumper stickers.

Buchanan claimed a moral victory in Georgia Tuesday night, telling jubilant supporters that his second strong primary showing against President Bush proves he can unseat "King George" and win the Republican nomination in August.

A consumer group filed suit Thursday in an effort to nullify last week's U.S. Senate runoff in Georgia and have incumbent Wyche Fowler Jr. declared the winner. Public Citizen contends that the Georgia law requiring a general election runoff when no candidate wins a majority violates the U.S. Constitution and federal law. It said the law adds a requirement for election to the Senate that was not imposed by Congress.

Frustrated by months without pay, a battalion of the Georgian republic's national guard took its armored vehicles on the road without warning or permission Friday and seized a military base close to the capital, Tbilisi. The movement prompted fears of a coup d'etat. It took a meeting between Georgian President Eduard A. Shevardnadze and rebellious officers to restore calm. The president said late Friday that the mutinous troops agreed to return to their garrison today.
