Bush Ends Campaign in Clinton-Gore Territory

Monday, 06 November 2000 12:00 AM

Bush thundered: "We're here to declare we're going to carry Arkansas tomorrow. People know there's a better day ahead in Washington, D.C., with new leadership.''

Adding to the irony, Bentonville is represented in Congress by Rep. Asa Hutchinson, one of the Republicans who led the impeachment of Clinton in the House of Representatives.

Bush's bold final day began with a stop in Tennessee, home of his Democrat rival, Al Gore.

"I, of course, come from Texas and I plan on carrying my home state,'' Bush said, drawing wild cheers from about 5,000 supporters packed into an aircraft hangar in Chattanooga, Tenn. "My opponent vows to carry his home state. He may win Washington, D.C., but he's not going to win Tennessee.''

Not since Richard Nixon took South Dakota from George McGovern in 1972 has a presidential candidate won the home state of his rival.

Calling Gore, who was born in Tennessee but spent much of his boyhood in Washington, where his father was a senator, "of Washington, by Washington and for Washington,'' Bush declared: "He forgot his roots. He forgets where he's from. He trusts the government, we trust the people.''
