Seeking to avoid almost certain defeat, Gov. Pete Wilson on Tuesday asked for an indefinite delay of a Senate confirmation vote on his appointment of former Republican Sen. James W. Nielsen to the state farm labor board. The GOP governor acted scarcely 24 hours before Nielsen, a former Senate GOP floor leader who was defeated for reelection in 1990, was scheduled to appear before the Democratic-dominated Rules Committee for approval to the $92,460-a-year post.

Reeling from a devastating special election loss to Democrats, frustrated Senate Republicans put the finishing touches on a plan Wednesday to throw out their top leader and replace him with veteran Sen. Ken Maddy of Fresno. But the embattled incumbent floor leader, Sen. James W. Nielsen, who himself was installed as the Senate's top Republican in a coup 3 1/2 years ago, was not ready to concede defeat. "We're still counting votes," he said, as both sides prepared for a showdown vote today.

Sen. Ken Maddy of Fresno, ousted almost four years ago as a member of the Senate Republican hierarchy, was returned to power Thursday as the GOP began trying to rebuild after suffering a major special election setback. As expected, Maddy, 52, replaced Sen. James W. Nielsen of Rohnert Park as the minority party's floor leader at a closed-door meeting, while Sen. John Doolittle of Rocklin succeeded Sen. John Seymour of Anaheim as GOP caucus chairman, the No. 2 leadership position.

Arthur Marmaduke has retired after 25 years as director of the California Student Aid Commission, under fire from Republican legislators who faulted him for $190 million in delinquent student loans. "The situation got nasty," Marmaduke, 59, said Friday after announcing his retirement. He said the pressure, particularly from state Sen. John Seymour (R-Anaheim), reinforced his plans to retire from the $58,000-a-year job.

But we think it's vital to this state and nation that we rally around our nominee," said the leader of the group, state Sen. James W. Nielsen (R-Rohnert Park). The four appeared briefly with Bush as the vice president campaigned at the TRW Inc. aerospace research facility in Redondo Beach.
