Democratic leaders are reassessing their chances in a once-dismissed Republican congressional seat in Orange County thanks, in part, to the coattails of Gov. Bill Clinton and the two Democratic U.S. Senate nominees. Like most of Orange County, the 39th Congressional District is predominantly Republican and, therefore, GOP nominee Edward R.

Atty. Gen. Dan Lungren on Thursday called for the resignation of Rep. Jay C. Kim (R-Diamond Bar), after his conviction on campaign finance violations, and endorsed one of Kim's opponents in the upcoming primary, Assemblyman Gary Miller (R-Diamond Bar). "These offenses constituted a willful pattern of illegal conduct which go to the heart of campaign laws," Lungren, a former congressman, said in a strongly worded statement. Kim's actions brought "dishonor" on the House, the statement said.

Lt. Gov. Leo T. McCarthy formally opened his U.S. Senate campaign Tuesday by declaring himself the advocate of middle-class Californians who have watched their earning power decline, who can no longer afford proper health care, and now even fear for their jobs. The 61-year-old San Francisco Democrat launched his ritual three-city announcement tour in a public park in Burbank, where he pledged to work for "people who live in neighborhoods like this one--or would like to."
