U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher’s campaign has agreed to debate his challenger, Huntington Beach Mayor Debbie Cook, before they face off in the November elections. But the campaigns spar as they appear to agree in principle. Cook’s campaign challenged Rohrabacher this week to at least three town-hall style debates, with at least one in a Los Angeles County area like Long Beach or the Palos Verdes Peninsula — areas that are in the 46th Congressional District, along with Orange County cities like Huntington Beach, Fountain Valley and Costa Mesa.

Dana Rohrabacher on Thursday to three town-hall-style debates before the November election. “The voters in our district should have meaningful opportunities to hear our very different goals and visions for the 46th district,” the Democrat said in her news release challenging Rohrabacher. “The congressman has been willing to debate in previous elections; I hope he will agree to join me in a series of forums that will present our positions directly to the voters.

A Costa Mesa man’s pre-trial hearing for allegedly threatening his ex-wife, possessing explosives and endangering a child has been moved to Los Angeles County because Orange County judges have all recused themselves, prosecutors said Monday. All future hearings for Ronald Turner, 44, will be in Los Angeles County up until the trial, if it goes that far, prosecutors said, because authorities suspect Turner threatened an Orange County judge along with his ex-wife and Huntington Beach police.

How candidates feel about handing over harbor patrol duties to Newport Beach city officials won’t figure in to Orange County Board Chairman John Moorlach’s pick for a new sheriff, he said Wednesday. “I don’t see that as one of the serious, overreaching reasons to hire someone,” Moorlach said. The supervisor’s comments come after Assemblyman Jose Solorio (D-Anaheim) announced earlier this month that he would shelve a bill that would keep the reins of the harbor patrol firmly in the hands of the county.
