Orange County has been included in President Bush's fast-changing campaign schedule that features a visit to Anaheim on Thursday for a speech to the employees of Odetics Inc., a high-technology firm that builds components for the space program. The President's visit was scheduled so quickly that the campaign did not send the usual notices to the Orange County Republican Party or the local GOP congressman, Robert K. Dornan (R-Garden Grove).
