NEWPORT BEACH — Republican presidential hopeful John McCain raised about $800,000 at a luncheon Tuesday afternoon at the Island Hotel, Assemblyman Van Tran said. The Arizona senator, who is expected to be the Republican candidate this fall, spoke to a group of high-ranking Orange County Republicans at the hotel across the street from Fashion Island. The event was closed to the media. “I have seen supporters from Mitt Romney, [Mike] Huckabee, [Fred] Thompson, all in attendance, maxing out for the senator,” said Tran, one of the area’s biggest McCain boosters.

For Orange County political players, Tuesday meant another day, another photo op and another 2008 presidential candidate looking for a financial boost. This time it was Republican Arizona Sen. John McCain, who appeared at the Island Hotel in Newport Beach. McCain is the latest candidate to pass through with his hands out. Republican hopefuls Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee and Rudy Giuliani held Orange County events in March. On the Democratic side, New York Sen. Hillary Clinton was in Laguna Beach in March, and Illinois Sen. Barack Obama raised money at a breakfast Monday in Newport Coast.

Re. " Cassity: Some reasons to vote for Obama (not really)," (Oct. 26): The latest in a series of farcical columns by Chuck Cassity is nothing short of a free political advertisement, facilitated by the Daily Pilot, on behalf of Mitt Romney. I am surprised that Chuck did not take full advantage of this timely opportunity presented to him to spew the entire litany of lies that are a signature of this Republican campaign. He forgot to mention that President Obama is not one of us — a Kenya-born illegitimate occupant of the White House, a secret Muslim who actually sympathizes with terrorists, and a hardcore socialist who does not believe in American exceptionalism.

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.

Mitt Romney criticized President Obama's health-care reforms and other regulations that some small businesses find burdensome during a campaign stop Monday at a Costa Mesa manufacturing plant. The presumptive Republican nominee, who met with business owners and executives at the Endural LLC plastic container plant, said health-care reform and other regulations are stifling businesses and, in turn, slowing job growth. "It's not just about getting the bad guys, of which there are a few, but also helping the good guys, encouraging entrepreneurs, understanding how hard it is to start a business, grow a business, help it live and thrive," he said.

In a moment consistent with the heightening political season, the Newport Beach City Council has decided to reopen the options for the vacant land near the library at MacArthur Boulevard and San Joaquin Hills Road. A council majority had voted to devote the space to just a park, declaring that it needed to keep a long-ago promise to residents to do just that. The alternative was to put both a park and a new city hall on the spot, using a design that would have made the new building more of a bunker than a low-rise.

A number of 2008 presidential hopefuls have come looking for support in Orange County, but they're not going to get it from Newport Beach Republican Assemblyman Chuck DeVore. Last week he gave his endorsement to a man who isn't even officially running: former Tennessee senator and widely-known actor Fred Thompson. Thompson, a Republican, headlined the Orange County Lincoln Club's annual dinner in May, where he got warm applause but didn't announce his candidacy. Now DeVore is urging Thompson to run and believes he is the first partisan elected official in California to endorse the actor-turned-politician.

The last two weeks were politically a little rough for me. Super Tuesday was almost two weeks ago, and I am still feeling the pain. I had been working to get former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney elected for more than two years, and trust me: When you lose, it leaves a mark. Looking back now, it is easy to see how it all played out. The conservative vote was split between Romney and former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee. Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani had lost in Florida the week before, so he dropped out of the race.

You know a political party is in trouble when the candidate anointed by the party’s long-established power structure loses a presidential primary to a maverick in the family. And, worse, loses to that infernal black sheep in a region known to be the power source of the party’s national lighthouse. In this instance, it’s the Republican Party that’s listing. It’s sailing for ice. And there are lifeboats in the water. I’m in one of them. Presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain is a maverick.

Does a presidential candidate who misspells "America" love it any less than the guy whose campaign gets all the letters in the right order? Is he less fit to lead if his Facebook page mentions "offical gear" when it means official gear? Would the typo "sneak peak" on his Facebook page peg him as illiterate, an ineffectual supervisor or a helmsman too dumb to realize he's steering a ship of dummies? These are the questions raised by three typos in one week that the Mitt Romney campaign let slip, the most famous of them being a campaign app that went viral because it contained the slogan "A Better Amercia.
