STATESVILLE, N.C. -- David Parker, the Iredell County Democratic chairman, concedes that the television commercials Republican Sen. Jesse Helms is using against Harvey Gantt this fall are "brilliant" political tools. But he adds: "I get the feeling he's preaching to the choir."This question is a critical one in the contest here between Helms and Democrat Gantt, the black former mayor of Charlotte. Everyone knows that Jesse Helms can whip up his conservative partisans by railing about Ted Kennedy and the perfidy of liberals but whether he once again can expand his core of followers into a majority of the North Carolina electorate is another matter.

In hindsight, they seem like the astrological predictions of supermarket tabloids:* Democrat Harvey Gantt leads Republican Jesse Helms, incumbent U.S. senator from North Carolina, 47 percent to 41 percent in the last Charlotte Observer poll.* Mr. Gantt leading 48 percent to 44 percent -- and picking up momentum -- in a recent Mason-Dixon poll.* Mr. Gantt ahead 49 percent to 41 percent in an earlier Observer poll.On Tuesday, Mr. Helms won a fourth term with 52.6 percent of the vote to Mr. Gantt's 47.4 percent.

Former Charlotte Mayor Harvey Gantt continues his strong bid in North Carolina to unseat U.S. Sen. Jesse Helms, according to a poll conducted this week.The poll indicated that Mr. Helms, a Republican, was statistically tied with his Democratic challenger: Mr. Helms' support rating of percent, compared with 45 percent for Mr. Gantt, was within the poll's margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percentage points.In a year when few incumbent senators appear in danger of defeat, the ultraconservative Mr. Helms appears to be the most vulnerable.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The high road is closed in the North Carolina Senate race.From the beginning, the contest between Republican Sen. Jesse Helms and Democrat Harvey Gantt, the black former mayor of Charlotte, was framed in stark ideological terms. Helms, the unflinching conservative, and Gantt, the unapologetic liberal, are polar opposites in politics.Until this week, however, they had waged a relatively genteel campaign, barely touching gloves as they sparred via television commercials.Now, with the election less than a week away and the race too close to call, the gloves are off."

Denise Gantt was a fifth-grader growing up in Harford County when she came across a poem by Amiri Baraka titled Preface for a Twenty Volume Suicide Note, which she said "was the most phenomenal piece of writing I had ever encountered." The inspiration she received paid off. Gantt, a poet ever since, is now the winner of Artscape's Maryland Emerging Voices Competition & Award, a contest sponsored by WordHouse Books, an imprint of the Baltimore Writer's Alliance. "I thought the way she weaves in different cultural differences and the quality of the lyric really appealed to me," says poet Afaa Michael Weaver, this year's judge.
