Sen. Dick Ackerman has the urbane sense of humor that helps when you are a member of a perpetual political minority. The Fullerton Yacht Club that he founded and is commodore of is based in his very landlocked hometown, more than 20 miles from the Orange County coast. The name he chose for his Catalina 42 sailboat, Free Ride, is an allusion to the fact that he did not have to give up his state Senate seat when he ran for attorney general in 2002 and was clobbered by the Democratic incumbent.

Republican candidates continued to emerge Thursday for the Orange County congressional seat held by Rep. Christopher Cox, nominated by President Bush to chair the Securities and Exchange Commission. If the Senate confirms Cox (R-Newport Beach), a special election is likely later this year, perhaps consolidated with a possible statewide election in November, or early next year.

A primary election will be held in the 72nd Assembly District on July 18 to narrow the field of candidates seeking the seat vacated by Republican Ross Johnson when he moved up to the state Senate last week. Gov. Pete Wilson issued a proclamation Tuesday setting the special election for Sept. 12. County election officials then immediately scheduled the primary contest for two months before that.

Although Republicans enjoy a 50% to 30% advantage over Democrats, Assemblyman Dick Ackerman (R-Fullerton) is still taking no chances in his bid to win the 33rd state Senate District seat. Ackerman, who represents the 72nd Assembly District, has no Republican opposition in the March 7 primary and only token opposition from Democratic, Libertarian and Natural Law Party candidates. He also has the endorsement of Sen.

Republicans were cruising to commanding victories in the 33rd and 35th state Senate districts, reaping all the benefits of Orange County politics--high Republican registration, sizable campaign coffers and incumbency. In the 35th district, the county's most veteran lawmaker, Sen. Ross Johnson, appeared easily headed for reelection. The 61-year-old Irvine Republican was first elected to the Assembly more than 20 years ago and was voted into the Senate in 1995.

Heaps of credit and praise were bestowed upon several individuals Friday at Cal State Fullerton during a ground-breaking ceremony for the Titan Sports Complex, which is scheduled for construction beginning this fall. But Fullerton football Coach Gene Murphy thought it was appropriate to single out one person, Fullerton City Councilman Dick Ackerman, as the driving force behind the project.

State Sen. Ross Johnson (R-Irvine) and outgoing Assemblyman Dick Ackerman (R-Fullerton) were poised on Tuesday to return to Sacramento, as the veteran legislators won the GOP primaries in their state Senate races. Each ran as the GOP establishment candidate and was unopposed. Johnson is the incumbent in the 35th State Senate District, but the November election will be the last for him. Johnson, who is Senate minority leader, will be forced by term limits to retire in 2004.
