Rep. Jim Courter won an eight-way fight for the Republican nomination for governor of New Jersey, setting up a November general election battle with another congressman for the office being vacated by Republican Thomas H. Kean. With about 81% of the precincts counted, Courter was leading a pack of the four major GOP candidates with about 28% of the vote to 21% each for former Atty. Gen. Cary Edwards and Assembly Speaker Chuck Hardwick, and 19% for state Sen. William Gormley. Rep. James J. Florio ran away with the Democratic primary, carrying almost 70% of the vote against two opponents.

Ronald Spiggle, Democratic county chairman in Appomattox County, Va., has not voted for a Democratic presidential candidate since 1980. But he plans to vote for the party's gubernatorial nominee, Douglas Wilder, on Nov. 7. What's more, Spiggle is confident that Wilder, a black, will carry Appomattox County, where the war between the states ended. The county went for George Bush by 2 to 1 last November. "Most people think he's a moderate who will keep the state programs going," Spiggle says.

Sen. Bob Dole's call for a "declaration of tolerance" in the Republican platform aimed at those favoring abortion rights won the grudging support Friday of Patrick J.

WASHINGTON - Republicans took multiple tries to deliver their reaction to President Obama's State of the Union address Tuesday night. In addition to the officially sanctioned Republican Party response by Washington Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers and a Spanish-language version by Florida Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, the Tea Party Express faction continued its practice of delivering a separate speech, this year by Sen. Mike Lee of Utah. And Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, who had delivered the Tea Party Express response last year, staked out his own turf this year with a YouTube address.
