WASHINGTON -- James Riady, an Indonesian billionaire with a financial stake in U.S. policy toward Asia, discussed trade policy with President Clinton and perhaps senior aides in some of the more than a dozen visits he made to the White House, administration officials acknowledged yesterday.After weeks of declining to provide details of the visits by Riady, the central figure in the current campaign finance uproar, White House press secretary Mike McCurry said a preliminary internal review had shown that Riady had been a guest at the Executive Mansion at least between 15 and 20 times over the past four years.

Republicans prevailed in the hotly contested Indiana gubernatorial race last night, with Mitch Daniels, former White House budget director, defeating incumbent Gov. Joe Kernan and breaking the Democrats' 16-year hold on the executive mansion. Daniels, 55, resigned last year as President Bush's director of the Office of Management and Budget to challenge Kernan, a former lieutenant governor, who took over the governor's office upon the death last year of Gov. Frank O'Bannon. Their contest, costing at least $28 million, was the most expensive in Indiana history.
