Irvine Councilwoman Beth Krom will continue her bid for U.S. Rep. John Campbell’s 48th District seat, after the sudden death of her 22-year-old son, her campaign manager has announced. “Beth is committed to the ongoing success of this campaign,” Krom’s campaign manager, Melahat Rafiei, said in a recent e-mail. Noah Krom, who apparently fell to his death from a cliff in Isla Vista earlier this month, was one week shy of graduating from UC Santa Barbara at the time of his death.

A Democratic challenger has never come close to unseating Rep. Dana Rohrabacher in a congressional race — the Republican has served 10 consecutive terms in the House — but several signs show that changing tides will likely give Huntington Beach Mayor Debbie Cook the best shot yet of upsetting him. Rohrabacher’s campaign said that some scary poll numbers some weeks ago caused the 20-year congressman to work harder than he ever...

COSTA MESA — Councilman Jim Righeimer's former campaign manager has been appointed to the city's Parks and Recreation Committee. Ethan Temianka was approved, without discussion, on a 4-1 vote. Councilwoman Wendy Leece dissented. The 27-year-old is a real estate investor. He has stated his involvement in city parks involves playing in the city's adult basketball league. Twelve people applied to be on the committee. Temianka is also known for co-founding, with Righeimer, Save the Fair, an effort to save the Orange County Fairgrounds.

In Costa Mesa, we enjoy a hobbyist, outdoor, do-it-yourself-kind of lifestyle. As you know, I've been involved in the RV issue and several others, getting involved in the City Council race as a campaign manager, and also I agree with Mitch Barrie that Costa Mesa is sort of surrounded by Orange County and we do have a unique character here that many, many people feel is being lost because of over-regulation ("Residents uniting...

The Obama campaign manager refers to Mitt Romney's recent comments as shocking that he has disdainfully written off half of the nation. That comment in itself should be considered shocking. Half of America is on government assistance? Apparently, the Obama campaign manager, as well as Obama himself, is spending way too much time dramatizing every word that comes out of Romney's mouth. The fact is there is an inordinate amount of people on the government payroll, and yes, there are those who legitimately need assistance.

A campaign mailer sent out this month by the Cristi Cristich for Assembly campaign likely garnered far more attention than even the most media-hungry politician could want. It is hard to imagine the campaign's goal was a headline reading "Cox condemns candidate's mailer." But there the headline was last Saturday, after Rep. Chris Cox had taken the unusual step to contact the media and hold a conference call in which he denounced the mailer, which showcased his name and excerpts from a letter he sent Cristich, one of six Republicans running in the March 2 primary.

COSTA MESA — Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Costa Mesa) on Friday responded to a published report showing that more than half of his campaign donations for a three-month period went to his wife, who works as his campaign manager. "The only people who've paid attention to this are the people scouring all the details that are looking into something that they can try and make look like it's some kind of violation or ethically wrong," Rohrabacher said. "Obviously, this is the only thing they can find.

Richard Taylor It has been widely reported that David Ellis, the campaign manager for City Councilmen Gary Adams, Tod Ridgeway and Don Webb, used deceptive and potentially fraudulent phone messages to attempt to manipulate last month's election in favor of Ellis' candidate, Adams. Reliable witnesses have now come forth and confirmed that the same type of deceitful phone call tactics were used back in November of 2000 in the Steve Bromberg vs. Greenlight candidate Pat Beek race.

Amid the bluster and noise of election season, and with Nov. 6 approaching like a bullet train, Newport Beach businessman Bob Rush managed to find some quiet. "In a nutshell, everybody's quiet," he said earlier this month. "I think everybody's been burned out from the primary. " Rush is a Democratic candidate for the 74th Assembly District, running against current 68th District Assemblyman Allan Mansoor, a Costa Mesa Republican who was redistricted into the 74th. The GOP-heavy territory serves Newport Beach, Costa Mesa, Irvine, Laguna Beach, Laguna Woods and Huntington Beach.

Your April 6 story, "Owners speak out against harbor rent increase," did not really reflect the seething anger in the Newport Beach City Council Chambers over an unbridled attempt to increase the city's revenue. The reason: The attendees were too gentlemanly and ladylike to express their true views about the mayor, two councilmen and the city manager who lectured the citizens as if they were schoolchildren. The foursome tried to appear to listen while their minds were made up and closed.

Following a blitzkrieg assault on the governmental process, on March 6 the four-man super majority of the Costa Mesa City Council voted to place Mayor Pro Tem Jim Righeimer's Charter on the June 5 ballot. This document, barely nine pages long, was cobbled together by Righeimer alone, apparently in a fit of pique because he's been unable to affect his misguided efforts to disembowel the municipal employee associations under the guise of budget and pension reform. The process to create a charter typically takes much longer than a couple of months.
