He has made a career in this city as a discreet Orange County Democrat, building bridges with powerful Republicans in the name of nonpartisanship. But now Anaheim Mayor Tom Daly is taking sides, just as he considers his first run at countywide political office. Since January, Daly has been quietly running the California office of Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-Garden Grove), drawing a $30,000-a-year salary to build the new congresswoman's political operation from the ground up.

Now it's the Democrats' turn to party. A 37-member delegation of spirited Democrats is scheduled to arrive in Chicago on Monday for the party's four-day national convention, the counterpart to the Republicans' gathering in San Diego two weeks ago. Even though Orange County is predominantly Republican, the Democratic group includes prominent business, education and community leaders, said Howard Adler, a wealthy Laguna Hills developer and party activist attending his fourth convention.
