JOSEPH GELARDEN STAR STAFF WRITER With 92 percent of precincts reporting in the race for Indiana attorney general, Democrat Pam Carter was inching toward a victory late Tuesday night over Republican Timothy L. Bookwalter. With 4,983 of the state's 5.412 precincts reporting, Carter held a 52 percent to 48 percent lead over Bookwalter. The partial count had Carter with a 68,244-vote lead over Bookwalter. Her total stood at 963,435 while Bookwalter was at 895,191. Carter's strongest margin appeared to be in South Bend and St. Joseph County, where with 240 of 266 precincts reporting, she was leading by 16,464 votes. When all of Marion County's 892 precincts were counted. Carter had won by 8,700 votes, according to The Indianapolis Star's Computerized Election Bureau. The unofficial Marion county totals were 143,759 for Carter and 135,059 for Bookwalter. "The trends are super," Carter said. "Our strongest counties are still coming in and the strongest precincts that are out are still coming in. So we can be cautiously optimistic." . In Marion County, Carter finished with 15,039 votes above what Is considered the baseline vote for Democratic Party candidates. The baseline is the average of vote totals for the three county- ATTORNEY GENERAL ; wide offices of treasurer, surveyor and coroner. Her showing suggested that Gov. Evan Bayh's coattails were helping his former executive assistant in her first political forav. Carter, 43, of Indianapolis, was Bayh's executive assistant for health and human services. Book-waiter, 37, of Fillmore is a self-employed criminal defense and personal injury attorney. By most measures, the Carter-Bookwalter battle was one of the state's most bitter campaigns. Despite the totals, many voters expressed distaste at the campaign, citing mudsllnging television ads in which the candidates accused each other of personal financial problems. . . Carter also pointed out that Bookwalter's former law partner had described him as unqualified for public office and that Book-waiter reneged on a lease for a business office. In return, Bookwalter countered in his ads that Carter had no criminal trial law experience and that she had declared bankruptcy in part to wipe out the student loans that financed her law school education. Carter is only the third black candidate to run for a statewide office. Both parties, however, discounted race as a factor in the campaign. STAR STAFF GRAPHIC DISTRICT 40 .

Democrats had won or were leading in 10 races. If those numbers hold true. Republicans will retain control of the Senate, with a 27-23 majority. They now hold a 26-24 edge. Sen. Robert F. Hellmann, D-Terre Haute, said he was gratified that three of the Democrat incumbents that were challenged will retain their seats.

But their success appeared to 'hinge on several races that, remained too close too call. Republicans held a slim lead in District 50, in which Incumbent Republican Gregory D. Server of EvansviUe was being challenged by Democrat Terry A. White, also of Evansvtlle. Democrats also held out hope that Jeffrey J. Lorenzo, a Seymour Democrat, could overtake Republican Becky Skillman of Bedford in the District 44 contest. With about 60 percent of the vote counted, Skillman held a 52 percent to 48 percent lead. Republican GOP chairman Rex Early said he was buoyed by the early results. "I feel like we are going to win seven out of the eight races that we are concerned about," he said. Early said he put $85,000 "and a lot of blood sugar" into those races. Sen. Robert D. Garton, president pro tempore of the Indiana Senate, said he was feeling good about the direction the races were going. But he remained cautious They got assistance from Gov INDIANA SENATE throughout the evening Tuesday, refusing to make any projections. "I'd like to see more numbers on the boards," he said.

Maidenberg spent considerable effort in Hamilton County, a Republican stronghold, but "It's tough when you're working on a retail basis, one vote at a time." Late in the campaign both candidates began airing television ads in Indianapolis to reach voters in the southern end of the district. Maidenberg virtually eliminated all mention of his party in the ads, hoping to lure Republican voters with references to his willingness to rise above partisan politics. Kenley, a former city court Judge, focused on his ties to the community. By ERIC B. SCHOCH STAR STAFF WRITER - Noblesville grocer Howard A. "Luke" Kenley built on a strong Republican base to take a victory Tuesday over Incumbent Democratic Sen. Anthony C. Maidenberg, reaping the gains from a newly configured District 20. Maidenberg helped break a legislative deadlock In 1991 when he accepted a Republican-drawn district map, allowing both the state budget and redistricting to gain approval in the Indiana General Assembly. But the change left Maidenberg in a more heavily Republican district, one that snakes from Grant County's Marion where he once was mayor south through Howard. Madison and Tipton counties to Hamilton County. With about 96 of the district's 107 precincts reporting, Kenley had 22.673 votes to 17,258 for Maidenberg, according to unofficial reports. Maidenberg led in his home Grant County and in Madison County, but Kenley was strong elsewhere. Kenley stressed that "one of my tasks is going to be to assure people that I will more than adequately represent people throughout the district."
