North was "giving aid and comfort" to Saddam Hussein by suggesting U.S. forces could not stop an Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. "It is despicable, it is unpatriotic and as is often the case with statements from Oliver North, it is also patently untrue," Vice President Al Gore said.

Virginians don't care for Democratic presidents in general. And the polls show that most of them don't like Bill Clinton in particular. Yet in an election year when he is avoiding many conservative states, President Clinton made his first political foray Monday into the the Old Dominion on a hunch that he could raise money and deliver Democratic voters for beleaguered Sen. Charles S. Robb (D-Va.).

Two former Republican Administration officials spoke in favor of Democratic Sen. Charles S. Robb on Tuesday, saying Oliver L. North's conduct during the Iran-Contra affair makes him unworthy to be senator. The election is "clearly one in which the Constitution is being challenged by a candidate who violated that law, admitted he violated those laws and then admitted that he lied to cover it up," said William E. Colby, CIA director under President Gerald R. Ford from 1973 to 1976.

In addition to the record-setting spending in California's Senate race, Virginia's race between Republican Oliver L. North and Democratic Sen. Charles S. Robb may also go into the spending record books. North, who built a huge direct-mail fund-raising network initially to pay for his defense in the trial growing out of the Iran-Contra scandal and then for political purposes, so far has raised $15.1 million, according to Federal Election Commission filings.

Oliver L. North, the ramrod Marine who emerged from the Iran-Contra scandal as a conservative icon, won the Virginia Republican Senate nomination Saturday. His victory virtually ensured an unpredictable four-way contest for the seat now held by embattled Democrat Charles S. Robb. At a tense and emotional party convention here, North comfortably defeated fellow conservative James C. Miller III, who had centered his campaign on the argument that North could not win in the general election.
