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.

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.

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.
