Democrats want Sen. Ben Nighthorse Campbell of Colorado to pay for his conversion to the Republican Party--$255,460.42, to be exact. That's how much the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee poured into his 1992 campaign. Campbell survived a three-way primary and then defeated Republican Terry Considine with 52% of the vote. Sen. Bob Kerrey (D-Neb.), the committee chairman, told Campbell in a letter released Wednesday that the committee had given him "the critical resources necessary to win."

Charles Hatcher, one of the worst abusers of the now-closed House bank, was ousted in a runoff election with state Sen. Sanford Bishop.

President Bush's endorsement of term limitations for state legislators and members of Congress could reshape the politics of the issue, accelerating its transformation from a populist struggle between insiders and outsiders into a partisan battle between Democrats and Republicans, analysts say.

A trust controlled by San Diego hotelier Mark Grosvenor has acquired the historic 250-room El Cortez Hotel and annex for about $6 million, sources close to the deal confirmed Friday. The new owner plans to renovate the site for hotel operations or condominiums, sources said.
