Basketball star Earvin "Magic" Johnson said Monday that he will run for mayor of Los Angeles if he decides the city needs a new voice to replace Mayor James K. Hahn. Johnson supported Hahn's campaign last year, but said the mayor had made "a big, big mistake" by opposing Police Chief Bernard C. Parks' bid for reappointment. "I'm not just going to run because Mayor Hahn is not doing a good job," Johnson said.

Challengers, by definition, can be counted on to attack the incumbent's accomplishments and question decisions. That's what challengers do, and that questioning serves the democratic process. Yet Garcetti refuses to debate.

Schwarzenegger previously had indicated he would not leave California to campaign, citing the demands of governing.

"If there's a place, one place where they want to pop me in, this makes sense for me," he said.

Bill Mundell, the only Republican making serious preparations to challenge U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein's bid for reelection, said Tuesday he has decided not to run, leaving the GOP with no clear contender for one of California's top races for 2006.

The decision by the George W. Bush campaign to seek an injunction to end the Florida vote recount was met Saturday with skepticism by some Republicans who warned it could cost him public support even if it secures him the Oval Office. By throwing the presidential election into court, the Bush campaign is heading down a path "that they previously indicated they were not going to pursue," said Marshall Wittmann, a political analyst and advisor to Sen.

The mayoral campaign of Eric Garcetti used a new poll Monday to tout its candidate's early strength, while acknowledging that there are miles to go before Los Angeles elects its next mayor. Bill Carrick, the Garcetti campaign's chief strategist, said the poll by Loyola Marymount University's Center for the Study of Los Angeles demonstrated that Garcetti's slim lead -- he was favored by 36.1% to Controller Wendy Greuel's 32.3% -- is bolstered by its breadth. As I reported in Monday's paper , Garcetti led across a number of demographic categories, including Latinos, Asians, Democrats, union households and voters of every education level as well as most income levels.
