The Associated Press Republican presidential candidate Bob Dole gives the thumbs-up sign while former Presidents Gerald Ford (left) and George Bush (right) and Dole's wife, Elizabeth, join him during a Friday rally in Grand Rapids, Mich. Former presidents give Dole an assist Bush and Ford rally support, discuss Clinton's ethical woes By The Associated Press GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Bob Dole, opening a final cross-country marathon, enlisted two former Republican presidents Friday in a last-chance bid to overtake President Clinton in key states in the industrial heartland. "We're.on our way to the White House. Hang on!" Dole proclaimed as George Bush and Gerald Ford joined for the first leg, a tour of Ohio and Michigan. Ohio, with 21 electoral votes, and Michigan, with 18, are usually key battleground states. But Clinton holds double-digit leads in polls in both states, as he does across most of the industrial Midwest. Ford urged Republicans not to stay home, citing close votes in the past. "We urge you, we plead with you, to make a maximum effort on November 5" to elect Dole, Ford said at a noisy indoor rally in Grand Rapids, his hometown. Bush emphasized ethics. "It breaks my heart to see the White House now under fire, not about policy, but because of integrity and honor," Bush said at a rally at Ashland University in Ohio. He referred to Ronald Reagan, the other living former GOP president, saying, "Barbara and I, and the Reagans and Fords before us, at least we upheld the honor and the integrity of the White House." T CAMPAIGN '96 Dole, who has appealed to independents and supporters of Reform Party candidate Ross Perot in recent days, focused on the GOP leaders on Friday. "You couldn't have two better role models than President Ford and President Bush," he said. With Dole trailing badly in national polls going into the final weekend, campaign manager Scott Reed said, "There's three different routes to 270," the number of electoral votes needed to win the presidency. "One is winning all three of the Midwest," he said, a reference to Ohio, Michigan and Missouri; another is "winning two and a couple other states; and one is winning California." Clinton won all four of those named states in 1992 and is leading in surveys in all four this year. Dole's 96-hour nonstop campaign finale began with Dole, Bush and Ford all beating up on the Democratic incumbent. Ford said, "A Dole White House will be drug free. A Dole White House won't bring up 900 FBI files so that the politicians can examine them." That was a reference to the obtaining of FBI files on prominent Republicans by Craig Livingstone, then a White House official. Bush referred to the same matter and also noted that Livingstone was a former bar bouncer. "I never saw an FBI file, but then I never had a barroom bouncer to look them over either," Bush said. He said when he was president, he had his White House counsel review files in personnel matters. Clinton and Dole urge finance reform President's camp worried campaign finance will cost Clinton landslide win By The Associated Press SANTA BARBARA, Calif. — Accused of peddling access to the Oval Office, President Clinton demanded an end Friday to the "escalating arms race" for political money. Bob Dole countered with his own solutions to "a growing scandal" of Democratic financial sins. The president insisted, "We have played by the rules." But he did not address mounting allegations concerning his party's fundraising practices. The rhetoric from both camps capped a political season marked by a record roundup of "soft money" — cash that pours through campaign finance loopholes. Reform Party candidate Ross Perot's poll numbers recently crept into double digits after he sharpened attacks on both candidates, particularly concerning what he has described as illegal contributions to the Democrats. Clinton's political team now fears the campaign finance issue could give Perot a homestretch push at the expense of the president's landslide dreams. Clinton tried to prevent that with a speech outlining his work on campaign finance reform. He bluntly questioned Dole's efforts, saying, "My opponent opposed it." Dole tried to coax Clinton into a debate on campaign finance reform, but the White House refused. Perot accepted the idea, but Dole's campaign said it would wait and see what the president does. Clinton is especially vulnerable on the issue: Big-time contributors from Asia received invitations to the White House and personal notes from the president. Officials said there was no favors given for those contributions, but Clinton's failure to address the allegations directly has brought accusations that he is trying to sidestep the issue until after Election Day.
