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.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) said her campaign is among those that may have been "wiped out" by a Burbank-based Democratic campaign treasurer who was arrested on federal fraud charges earlier this month. Kinde Durkee is accused of taking thousands of dollars from the campaigns of several elected officials, including Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-Garden Grove), Rep. Susan A. Davis (D-San Diego) and Assemblyman Jose Solorio (D-Santa Ana). The Los Angeles County Democratic Party reported that more than $200,000 had been taken from its fund.

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

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.

The director of the Los Angeles Ethics Commission on Monday accused attorney Pierce O'Donnell and employees of his firm of laundering $25,500 in political contributions to Mayor James K. 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.

Veteran Los Angeles political observers agreed Wednesday that Dist. Atty. Gil Garcetti has almost surely emerged victorious in his hard-fought race for reelection against challenger John Lynch. They said Lynch would have to win an extraordinarily high percentage of the ballots yet to be counted in order to defeat the incumbent.

They gave him until Friday to sign.

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.

Former Santa Monica Mayor Bobby Shriver has filed papers that allow him to begin raising money to run for the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, according to the county clerk's office. The nephew of late President John F. Kennedy has not formally announced he is running for the third district seat being vacated by termed-out Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky, but Shriver is widely expected to enter the race. Shriver, who filed his “candidate intention statement” on Jan. 3, has spent time observing the supervisors' weekly meetings and combing the county's budget, and is being advised by longtime friend Bill Carrick, a veteran Democratic consultant who led Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti to victory last year.
