With just four days remaining before Tuesday's election, a political slugfest marked by name-calling, finger-pointing and lawsuits is grabbing most of the attention in Orange County's congressional races, overshadowing the more subdued contests being waged in most other districts. The heated, highly personal campaign between Rep. Robert K. Dornan and Democratic challenger Mike Farber in the 46th Congressional District showed no sign of abating at week's end.

In a last-minute push to raise cash, a top aide to Rep. Robert K. Dornan (R-Garden Grove) pleaded with Washington lobbyists for campaign contributions to fend off an unexpectedly tough primary challenge. In telephone calls made last week, the aide reportedly told lobbyists who represent Orange County interests that a private poll shows Dornan's Tuesday primary opponent, former Orange County Superior Court Judge Judith A. Ryan, trailing by only 5 percentage points.

Rep. Robert K. Dornan's attack-style politics and millions of dollars in contributions have long made him Orange County's 400-pound gorilla at the polls--able to scare off formidable rivals and easily defeat those who challenge him. Two years ago, Dornan had just one opponent--a Democrat who withdrew shortly after the race started, even though her party held a majority among voters registered in Dornan's central county district. This time, though, things are different.

In an abrupt turnabout, Rep. Robert K. Dornan announced Thursday that he will run for reelection in a proposed Santa Ana congressional district and abandon plans to challenge conservative soul mate Rep. Dana Rohrabacher in a Republican primary next June. The decision came after Dornan said he talked Thursday night with close friends, who appealed to his Republican loyalty, and Rohrabacher's mother, who appealed to his heart.

On their national scoreboard for maintaining control of Congress, Democrats in Washington on Monday moved Orange County's proposed 46th district from the "leaning Republican" column to "tossup." Strategists and officeholders from both major parties were forced to rethink plans for next year's Orange County elections Monday after Rep. Robert K. Dornan's (R-Garden Grove) surprise announcement that he plans to abandon his central Orange County district and run next June for a seat on the coast.
