Your editorial (May 22) regarding the 40th Congressional District relates only to the Republican primary. There is a Democratic Party in Orange County. The one outstanding candidate in the 40th, regardless of party, is Democrat Lida Lenney. DAVID A. LANDER Costa Mesa

Thank you for the clear and concise endorsement of Nathan Rosenberg as the candidate for the 40th Congressional District. You did your homework. I, too, have looked into the background and qualifications of the men and women who want to represent me. I heartily agree with you: Nathan Rosenberg is our man for the 40th District.

In your article "40th District: Republicans' Coveted Gem" (April 11), you, as on previous occasions, state that the views of the candidates running for the 40th Congressional (District) seat are very similar. While this is basically true, I feel that the differences between several candidates on several issues (trade with Communist countries, off-shore oil drilling, abortion, etc.) are significant and as wide as one might expect from 13 candidates belonging to the same party in the same region of the country.

Nathan Rosenberg's campaign slogan in recent weeks has been, "read my book," a reference to the 80-page volume covering his life and political positions that was sent to voters in the 40th Congressional District. It is a campaign tactic that isn't likely to be copied by C. Christopher Cox, one of Rosenberg's main rivals in the June 7 GOP primary. Cox, who served two years as a White House employee, doesn't take kindly to the "kiss and tell" best sellers by former Reagan Administration officials.

Here we go again with sleaze and smear in the 40th Congressional District. The coward who yelled "adulterer" at candidate C. David Baker and then ran from the meeting did not, in my opinion, deserve one line of press from you or any other newspaper. OK, so now we know that Mr. and Mrs. Baker had a few months of strife in their 13 years of marriage. The other primary candidates, who claim to be blameless in the smear, are still taking the low road by saying he has not addressed the charge.

After months of rumors, allegations of adultery against front-running candidate C. David Baker surfaced this week in the race for the Republican nomination in the 40th Congressional District. At a Newport Beach candidates' forum Thursday night, an unidentified man stood up as Baker was being introduced and shouted, "Mr. Baker, the issue is adultery." The man was ushered out of the room and fled before he could be questioned.
