It looks like a record-breaking night as far as turnout goes in Orange County, making it truly a Super Duper Tuesday locally too. “You know, it is higher [than I expected],” Orange County Registrar of Voters Neal Kelley said. “I thought the turnout at the precincts may be a little lower because a lot of people voted by mail, but that’s not the case.” Kelley estimated that, when coupled with the high number of voters who submitted their ballot by mail, total voter turnout could be as high as 70%. “That is a record in Orange County for a presidential primary,” he said.

Rep. John Campbell sees a silver lining in his man Mitt Romney’s second-place losses in both the New Hampshire primary and Iowa Caucus. Everyone forgets Romney won a quiet victory Jan. 5 in Wyoming’s caucuses, Campbell said Wednesday. None of the other top GOP candidates campaigned there. “That’s two silvers and a gold the way I see it,” Campbell said of Romney’s recent results. Campbell said he is endorsing former Massachusetts Gov. Romney because of his ability to solve large-scale problems in a scientific, nonpartisan way.   STATE MONEY WOES COULD AFFECT COUNTY With a bleak economic landscape and a massive state budget deficit looming overhead, Supervisor John Moorlach became chairman of the Orange County Board of Supervisors earlier this week.

If Newport Harbor High School students had their way, Sen. Barack Obama would be in good shape — presidential shape, in fact. Newport Harbor High School held a mock election in English classes Tuesday, and Obama handily received the majority of votes from students. Obama took home 270 votes to Sen. Hillary Clinton’s 136 from students who voted for Democrats. In a closer contest, Sen. John McCain was the favorite among Republican candidates, drawing 103 votes with Rudy Giuliani grabbing second place, Gov. Mitt Romney in third, Gov. Mike Huckabee in fourth and Ron Paul in fifth.

Top Orange County Republican official Scott Baugh has cut ties with Newport Beach drug and alcohol rehabilitation home operators, he said Thursday. “I was trying to negotiate a resolution that would avoid the need for an ordinance but I don’t think that’s going to be an outcome that’s going to be achieved,” Baugh said Thursday from Iowa, where he was helping with presidential hopeful Mitt Romney’s campaign efforts during the Iowa caucus. “I still believe this issue is preempted by state and federal laws.

CORONA DEL MAR - With a distinct Texas drawl and plain-spoken message, GOP front-runner and Texas Gov. Rick Perry revved up his growing tea party base in Orange County on Thursday, joking the area is fancy like a raspberry or blueberry pie. Drenched in sunlight at Roger's Gardens, hundreds of conservatives - many self-identifying as tea partiers - hooted and hollered as Perry railed against President Obama and big government.

Mitt Romney stepped forward with a speech about his Mormon faith last week, arguing that it would not have an undue influence on his administration if he were elected president. Meanwhile, GOP presidential hopeful Mike Huckabee has defended his decision as Arkansas governor to push for the early release of a convicted rapist who went on to murder a woman in Kansas because the evangelical Huckabee believed the killer had been saved while in prison. Arkansas parole board members say Huckabee’s faith and influence from evangelical leaders drove him to push for the man’s parole.

Researchers recently discovered a way to reprogram ordinary cells from mice that would make them virtually like embryonic stem cells, sidestepping the ethical debate over the use of embryonic stem cells. Presidential candidate Mitt Romney called on lawmakers to approve funding for this type of research. Should lawmakers focus more on finding alternatives to embryonic stem cell research? Without any hesitation, the response of the Catholic Church is a resounding yes, for the following reasons: Embryonic stem cell research involves the killing of the living human embryo, and the Catholic Church opposes the direct destruction of innocent human life for any purpose, including research.
