Dana Point City Councilwoman Diane Harkey had plenty of friends in Newport Beach when she campaigned for the 35th District State Senate seat in 2006, but a planned fundraiser on their turf today may also bring out enemies. Harkey narrowly lost the open seat to Tom Harman in an April 2006 special election. Now she's running for a state assembly seat in a district that doesn't include Newport but following the trend of fundraising in town. But when she gets to Newport, Harkey may face protesters who are trying to recall her from her council seat.

The recount of primary votes in the 35th District state Senate race is officially over, and Huntington Beach Assemblyman Tom Harman remains the GOP winner. Harman beat Republican Dana Point City Councilwoman Diane Harkey by 236 votes in the April 11 election for the Senate seat, which was left vacant when incumbent Sen. John Campbell won a U.S. House seat in December. Because the election was so close, Harkey asked for a recount: Less than half a percentage point separated Harkey, who had 37,604 votes, from Harman, with 37,840 votes.

A recount of ballots cast in last week's special primary for the 35th District state Senate seat is expected to begin today and could be finished early next week, officials said, but it will be a historic anomaly if it changes the election's outcome. In the April 11 election, Republican Huntington Beach Assemblyman Tom Harman beat GOP opponent and Dana Point City Councilwoman Diane Harkey by 236 votes, becoming his party's nominee on the June 6 ballot. In the general election, Harman will face Democrat Larry Caballero, who was the only other candidate on last week's ballot.

If you believe the mail in the 35th Senate District race, the two Republican candidates are hideous scoundrels who don't deserve to take out their would-be constituents' trash, let alone get their votes. Dana Point City Councilwoman Diane Harkey and Huntington Beach Assemblyman Tom Harman will square off with Democrat Larry Caballero in a Tuesday special election to win the 35th District Senate seat, which represents Costa Mesa, Newport Beach and all or part of 13 other cities in Orange County.

As Dana Point City Councilwoman Diane Harkey and Huntington Beach Assemblyman Tom Harman speed toward an April 11 special primary, the race seems to be following a well-worn course through Newport-Mesa. Each of the Republicans is hoping to win the vacant 35th District California Senate seat. Democrat Larry Caballero, a teacher, also will appear on the ballot. If no candidate gets more than 50% of the vote, the top Republican will face Caballero in a June 6 general election.

Senate campaign is, for now, focusing on Huntington, where one hopeful has the advantage.Just months after a special election for Congress engulfed the Newport-Mesa area with campaign signs and emotional debate, a new race for the state Legislature has generated noticeably less buzz in the area. The campaigning has begun, but to get a piece of the action, residents should look north to Huntington Beach, where both sides are sowing the seeds for a bitter battle to Sacramento. Nearly a quarter of the voters in the 35th state Senate district live in Huntington Beach, making it an obvious battleground in the April 11 special election between local Assemblyman Tom Harman and Dana Point City Councilwoman Diane Harkey.

Election workers may finish recounting ballots in the 35th District state Senate race later this week, but it will likely take much longer to sort out what the election's outcome means for Orange County Republicans. Huntington Beach Assemblyman Tom Harman won the Republican nomination on April 11, beating Dana Point City Councilwoman Diane Harkey by 236 votes. A recount requested by Harkey began Wednesday but by the end of the week had not moved her any closer to a win. If nothing changes, Harman will run against Democratic candidate Larry Caballero on June 6. Harkey had superior finances and the backing of nearly every major GOP figure in the county, and she didn't win. If it's a sign that the GOP establishment is out of step with party voters, it's not a very clear one. "I'm not sure I want to go out and say this was a message to the leadership," Harman said.
