Newport Beach attorney C. Christopher Cox, who just five months ago was working in Washington, has emerged from virtual obscurity to become the front-runner in the Republican primary in the 40th Congressional District, a poll conducted for the Times' Orange County Edition has shown. The poll found that Cox, senior associate counsel to President Reagan before leaving the White House in January to run for the seat being vacated by Rep. Robert E.

Senate Majority Leader Robert K. Dole (R-Kansas), in Orange County last month to stump for fellow Republicans, was chatting with a handful of reporters and local congressmen when he turned to Rep. Robert E. Badham (R-Newport Beach) and inquired about his reelection bid. The 57-year-old, five-term incumbent shrugged off the question, telling Dole with a smile that he did not have much of race on his hands.

By most accounts, the race for the 40th Assembly District seat is Barbara Friedman's to lose. Anointed by a powerful coalition of Democratic politicians, the freshman lawmaker who lost her political home in last year's reapportionment stands the best chance of winning the seat vacated by retiring Assemblyman Tom Bane (D-Tarzana), according to analysts and candidates.

Family Sick Leave Q. Gov. Deukmejian recently vetoed legislation that would have granted workers as much as four months of unpaid leave every two years to care for sick children, spouses and other family members without fear of losing their jobs. Do you favor this type of legislation? Bane: Yes. This legislation should be phased in as unpaid leave. Every progressive nation has such an allowance and it is time we do. Gabriel: No. It would be too costly to the taxpayers. Vernon: No.

State Sen. Wadie P. Deddeh (D-Bonita) has privately told political leaders in Sacramento and San Diego that he may soon resign, which would lead to a special election this fall to fill the final year of his term. Deddeh, a member of the Legislature since 1966, declined comment Friday but said he would make a statement about his future Monday or Tuesday.

After an expensive and bitter campaign, Assemblyman Steve Peace (D-Chula Vista) apparently has defeated Republican businessman Joseph Ghougassian in a special election Tuesday for a vacant state Senate seat from southern San Diego County. With all 170 precincts counted, Peace had a 52% to 48% lead. That reflected a 2,300 vote margin, but 4,800 absentee ballots were yet to be counted.

Endorsements from two influential Assembly incumbents were not enough to boost their aides to primary victories in the San Fernando Valley. Instead, the Democratic nominations--and, most likely, the Assembly seats--went to a small-city mayor and a Capitol staffer whose opponent turned sharply negative in the race's final week.

Assemblywoman Barbara Friedman (D-Los Angeles) raised nearly $500,000 last year to win election to a 15-month term representing the 46th District, which in December will be wiped out by a redrawing of district boundaries. Now the freshman is once again raising money, but this time for a more secure job: representing the 40th Assembly District, a Democratic stronghold in the San Fernando Valley represented by Assemblyman Tom Bane (D-Tarzana).

Growing up in the suburbs of St. Paul, Minn., C. Christopher Cox dreamed of racing cars. It was in his blood. His grandfather raced motorcycles, and his father drove sleek, high-powered sports cars as a professional driver at Riverside International Raceway and other tracks around the country. Intoxicated by the speed and glamour, the teen-ager longed to swap the stiff, wool uniform of the all-boys Catholic military academy he attended for a racing helmet.

Like the auto racer he once dreamed of becoming, C. Christopher Cox steered his campaign around an early 14-candidate pileup in the Republican primary in the 40th Congressional District last June to win the GOP nomination. By contrast, Cox's Nov. 8 general election race against Democrat Lida Campbell Lenney for the seat of retiring Rep. Robert E. Badham is looking like a drive through the park, given the district's 59%-to-30% Republican edge in voter registration.
