THE WRIGHT STUFF?: To hear John Theiss tell it, a conservative revolution is in the making and President Bill Clinton is the key ingredient. His recipe for change goes like this: Add a hefty measure of Republican discontent to a Democratic presidency, stir up the issues and what do you get? A GOP voter revolt. At least, this is what campaign director Theiss forecasts for his boss, state Sen. Cathie Wright (R-Simi Valley), in her bid for lieutenant governor.

Cathie Wright (R-Simi Valley), who is running for lieutenant governor, broke tradition and endorsed two rival candidates in the Republican primary for a congressional seat representing Thousand Oaks.

for whatever it's worth--to only a single candidate in a race. State Sen. Cathie Wright (R-Simi Valley), who is herself running for lieutenant governor, clearly did not feel bound by such constraints in a recent Republican primary campaign. Last summer, Wright endorsed Richard Sybert, a Calabasas resident and former senior aide to Gov. Pete Wilson, in the 24th Congressional District contest to nominate an opponent to Rep. Anthony C. Beilenson (D-Woodland Hills).

State Sen. Cathie Wright, a blunt-spoken conservative Republican from Simi Valley who has spent 13 years in the Legislature, announced her candidacy Tuesday for the GOP nomination for lieutenant governor. "I'm a strong Republican woman and a conservative, and I think the Republican Party would like to see a balanced ticket," Wright, 64, said. "I think I would be a big help to the governor's office."
