Assemblyman Tom Umberg, Orange County's only Democrat in the Legislature, said Wednesday that he is planning a campaign next year to unseat state Atty. Gen. Dan Lungren. Umberg, a former federal prosecutor, stopped short of officially launching his campaign, saying instead that he will form an exploratory committee and probably make a final decision in January about running for the office. He declined to rule out the possibility that he might seek reelection to his Garden Grove Assembly seat.

Republican candidate Dan Lungren kicked off the race for state attorney general with a controversial ad campaign that is murky and exploitative. The radio and TV commercials accuse Lungren's Democratic opponent, San Francisco Dist. Atty. Arlo Smith, of going soft on crime by accepting a plea bargain in a rape and drug case involving wealthy businessman Donald E. Werby. The commercials, which on radio sound like a news report, are misleading in their omission of some key facts.

At the same time, Ventura County Dist. Atty. Michael D. Bradbury endorsed Republican candidate Dan Lungren at a news conference in Los Angeles. Assistant Dist. Atty.

Atty. Gen. Dan Lungren has concluded that two top aides to his predecessor violated state law when they negotiated a contract for their private legal services with state Insurance Commissioner John Garamendi. Early this year, Garamendi hired Michael J. Strumwasser and Frederic D. Woocher to represent the Department of Insurance in a series of legal battles over Proposition 103, the 1988 initiative that required a rollback in insurance rates.

Senate Democratic Leader Barry Keene on Friday charged that Gov. George Deukmejian's nomination of Rep. Daniel E. Lungren (R-Long Beach) to be state treasurer was "unnecessarily politically motivated and divisive." "A person whose voting patterns consistently reflect the views of a few people at one end of the political spectrum is probably not sufficiently mainstream," Keene (D-Benicia) said of the conservative Lungren.

When are they going to ship Mickey Conroy (R-Santa Ana) back to Fantasyland where he belongs? This staunch Republican conservative, the friend of business, has come up with a bill prohibiting port-to-port gambling in California ("Bill Tries to Sink Floating Casinos," June 8). And the attorney general (Dan Lungren) supports him. Their fear is that "organized crime" will somehow sneak in and take over California. Wow! With the Indians running bingo all over the state, the state running a lottery, the tracks running off-track betting, the various cities and counties running their card parlors, the schools and churches and synagogues with their bingo, and the local bookies in the cracks doing their thing regularly, I wonder how long "organized crime" is going to have to stand in line for a piece of the action.

Atty. Gen. Dan Lungren said Tuesday that the state will "vigorously pursue" a lawsuit seeking to force the U.S. Commerce Department to use adjusted census figures that would add more than 1 million people to California's official population. The federal lawsuit was filed in 1988 by New York City, New York state, California and other cities and private organizations.

Prior to last November's elections, political pundits confidently predicted significant Republican gains in Congress. They were wrong. After the election, the same pundits were certain that the House would never impeach President Clinton. Wrong again. Also, since the election, pundits like Tony Quinn ("The Eyes of California Republicans Should Be on Texas," Opinion, Dec. 20) have vehemently asserted that the California Republican Party was routed in November because of its position on immigration.
