The race for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate narrowed Friday as Orange County businessman J.P. Gough withdrew from the March 7 contest and endorsed the front-runner, Rep. Tom Campbell of San Jose. The decision by Gough, who cited problems raising campaign funds, comes two months after Silicon Valley millionaire Ron Unz dropped out of the race to concentrate full time on his campaign reform initiative on the March ballot. Unz also abandoned the campaign to unseat Democratic Sen.

It was not a Republican resurgence but rather the victory of a moderate Democrat that encouraged Rep. Tom Campbell (R-San Jose) to make a second bid for the U.S. Senate. Campbell announced his candidacy Friday for the seat now held by Dianne Feinstein and said that as a political centrist he was heartened by Democratic Gov. Gray Davis' landslide win on a moderate platform. "This is the moment for the independent person in California," Campbell said, grinning.

Seeking to position himself as a courageous outsider eager to tackle issues that mainstream politicians ignore, software entrepreneur Ron Unz--leader of last year's winning war on bilingual education--Tuesday declared himself a Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate seat of Democrat Dianne Feinstein. Unz, 38, said he jumped into the race because politicians of both parties "are avoiding issues that are important to society but are considered too controversial" by elected officials.

Rep. Tom Campbell (R-San Jose) is expected to announce plans today to establish an exploratory committee for a U.S. Senate campaign, positioning himself as the best-known Republican challenger to Democratic incumbent Dianne Feinstein in next year's election. Campbell, 47, is a moderate Republican who often strays from his party leadership in Congress and has been pushed to enter the race by some of the California financial backers of Texas Gov. George W.

Millionaire businessman Ron Unz has abruptly ended his campaign for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate after only eight weeks, saying he is unwilling to risk his push for campaign finance reform on an uphill bid to unseat Democrat Dianne Feinstein. "I am leaving the race to focus all my attention . . . on the campaign finance initiative," Unz told The Times. "And the reason I am leaving the race is very simply a matter of dollars and cents."

All right, so presidential candidates are again fawning over voters in New Hampshire. And in Iowa, as always, politicians are gabbing for hours with farmers about topics like subsidizing ethanol. In South Carolina, contenders for the White House are weighing in on whether a Confederate flag should continue to fly over the statehouse. And in New York, not a day goes by without some mention of a U.S. Senate race that isn't even officially underway.

'This one's going to be a cakewalk for Dianne," predicted one political observer after entrepreneur Ron K. Unz announced he was quitting the race for the GOP Senate nomination. Don't be too sure. Yes, multimillionaire Unz, known for his longshot primary challenge to incumbent Gov. Pete Wilson in 1994 and various initiative forays, would have brought deep pockets to the race. Mike Huffington, as an unknown congressman, used his wealth to win the 1994 Senate primary.

If it were a Broadway play, it might have closed after one night. But it's a political campaign, so the curtain on the first act waits until the March 7 primary for U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein and three Republicans battling to challenge her in November. Still, as they have taken their shows on the road, through living rooms and banquet halls from Sacramento to San Juan Capistrano, the incumbent Democrat and her would-be opponents are confronted by an almost palpable disinterest.
