Alex Coolman NEWPORT-MESA -- In the great zoo of Orange County politics, there are more animals than the donkey and the elephant. While the area is famous for its consistent support of Republican legislators, and while Democrats currently have a firm grip on California's Senate seats, other parties' candidates figure significantly in the political mix. They may not always be able to win an election, they concede,...

"We all said, 'Boy, enough!' " Nolan recalled. Nearly three decades later, Nolan is still saying "enough" to government.

Paul Clinton Libertarian Paul Studier's views on issues cut fairly close to his party's familiar positions on most issues. Studier can boil it down to one fairly easy-to-remember philosophy. "The less government we have in our lives, the better," Studier said, neatly summing up his support for abolishing income tax, legalizing drugs and fully deregulating the energy markets. Studier is running against Republican John Campbell, the incumbent, and Democrat John Kane in the race for the 70th Assembly District seat.

In between his numerous appearances on radio and TV and in print media lately, Costa Mesa Mayor Allan Mansoor found time to make some new political friends. No, not the Minutemen, though they did make him an honorary member in January. On Sunday, it was the Orange County Libertarians who invited Mansoor to speak at their monthly meeting in Costa Mesa. The group was looking for speakers, and Mansoor was asked because some of his ideas line up with those of Libertarians, said Bruce Cohen, the county Libertarian Party chairman.

Paul Clinton Airing his Libertarian views can be, at least for Keith Gann, more important than actually winning an election. As a result, Gann said he won't be surprised if he falls short of winning the congressional seat representing the 46th District. "Obviously, I'm not going to win," Gann said. "But [running for the seat] gives you a good chance to promote the ideas." Gann has been offering himself up as "a third choice," an option for voters disillusioned by the two major parties.

During the first and only scheduled debate among the four candidates for the 46th Congressional District at OCC, the two major party candidates also clashed on their respective visions for healthcare reform and their positions on amending the California Constitution to ban gay marriage.

Paul Clinton Congressional hopeful Joe Michael Cobb doesn't harbor any illusions about his qualifications to unseat Rep. Chris Cox, who has held the 48th District seat for 12 years. Cobb, the Libertarian candidate in the field, even credits his opponent as a Reagan-era Republican who shares many of the same views. "I won't claim that I'm more qualified than Chris Cox," Cobb said. "That would be fatuous." Cox, Cobb and Democrat John Graham are all running for the newly-drawn 47th District seat, which covers much of the same territory as the current district.
