Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley easily captured the Democratic nomination for a full four-year term Tuesday, while Democrat Terry Goddard took a narrow lead over Republican Fife Symington in an Arizona showdown for governor.

With 12 percent of precincts reporting in the Arizona runoff, Goddard, a former mayor of Phoenix, had 60,920 votes or 53 percent. Symington, a millionaire land developer and political newcomer, had 54,164 votes or 47 percent.In Chicago, with 83 percent of precincts reporting, Daley had 354,614 votes or 65 percent, to Cook County Commissioner Danny K. Davis' 159,330 votes or 29 percent.

The triumph virtually guarantees Daley re-election on April 2 and consolidates his claim as heir to a family dynasty established by his father, longtime Mayor Richard J. Daley, who died in office in 1976.
