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.

Autism advocacy was in its infancy in the mid-1990s when an organization of parents put the word out about a trip to Washington, D.C., to press for research dollars. Joining them unannounced was a political novice with her own autistic child who quickly became a household name in activist circles. Elizabeth Emken "was a mom from Danville who had read this somehow, and there she was in Barbara Boxer's office," said Jon Shestack of Los Angeles, who along with his wife founded Cure Autism Now in 1995.

A word to Dist. Atty. Gil Garcetti: Come reelection time, the incumbent is expected to defend his or her record in office.

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 move by Mundell, an education software executive, reflects the difficulty Republicans face in finding a strong candidate to challenge the popular Democratic incumbent.

Hahn's 2001 election campaign. The seven-page administrative accusation by Executive Director LeeAnn Pelham alleges that O'Donnell had 22 people, including employees of his law firm -- O'Donnell and Shaeffer -- and their relatives, make 26 contributions to Hahn's campaign, and then O'Donnell reimbursed them.

With his prime-time Republican National Convention speech fast approaching, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger said he could reverse course and campaign out of state for President Bush. Schwarzenegger previously had indicated he would not leave California to campaign, citing the demands of governing. But in an interview he said that he was prepared to make some appearances, though he had no specific plans. "If there's a place, one place where they want to pop me in, this makes sense for me," he said.
