A conservative cadre rallied by Orange County lawmakers won a hotly contested leadership race within California's GOP congressional delegation Monday by installing one of its own, Rep. Ron Packard (R-Carlsbad), and other allies in influential posts. Led by Rep. William E. Dannemeyer (R-Fullerton), the California conservatives ousted Rep. Jerry Lewis (R-Redlands) from his only state delegation post hours after Lewis won reelection as head of the House Republican party caucus.

As yet another cloud of controversy gathers over Congress, six out of seven San Fernando Valley-area congressmen said Tuesday they did not write any of the more than 8,000 checks that fellow lawmakers bounced at the House bank last year. The seventh, Rep. Henry A. Waxman (D-Los Angeles), declined to discuss the issue. A spokesman said Waxman considered it a purely private matter.

Several conservative Orange County congressmen have plunged headlong into a high-stakes political battle that could change the shape of the House Republican leadership as well as their own standing in Congress. The leadership fight, which will begin in earnest Monday, is attributable in part to a deep schism between the White House and GOP conservatives over tax hikes contained in the recently enacted deficit-reduction plan.

Rep. Jerry Lewis (R-Redlands) said he was looking for help in a gut-wrenching vote when he told his House Appropriations Committee colleagues an unusually personal story. The panel was debating a measure to prevent the Bush Administration's ban on abortion counseling at federally funded family planning clinics when Lewis recalled that a young woman who stayed with his family five years ago had visited one such clinic.

RUSH TO THE U.N.: The Bush Administration is expected to move right after Thanksgiving to push through the United Nations Security Council a resolution authorizing use of military action to force Iraq to withdraw from Kuwait. U.S. officials say they must move by the end of November, for tactical reasons and because the effort may be more difficult starting in December, when Yemen assumes the presidency of the Security Council.

The new move in the years-long battle over desert policy has the support of multiple-use advocates who are fiercely opposed to more restrictive legislation introduced earlier by Sen. Alan Cranston (D-Calif.) and Rep. Mel Levine (D-Santa Monica). Rep.

House Republicans today will elect as the newest member of their leadership a conservative Californian who has served in Congress for less than a decade, representing a district that covers vast tracts of Southland desert. Reps. Jerry Lewis of Highland and Duncan L. Hunter of Coronado both expect to win. For the state, the vote for chairman of the House Republican Policy Committee--the fourth-ranking spot in the GOP hierarchy--will increase Capitol Hill clout, whoever wins.

House Republicans, voting 88 to 82 Thursday, chose Rep. Jerry Lewis of Redlands over Rep. Duncan L. Hunter of Coronado as chairman of the House Republican Policy Committee, the fourth-ranking spot in the GOP leadership. Lewis' election was a victory for the party's established leadership over a mostly younger House group, which argues that the chamber's Republicans should be more confrontational in their relations with the Democratic majority.

Rep. Dick Cheney's nomination to be defense secretary set off a scramble Friday among Republicans for the key House leadership position that the Wyoming Republican will have to vacate, with the early front-runner appearing to be Rep. Jerry Lewis (R-Redlands), GOP observers said. A successful bid by Lewis to be minority whip--the House GOP's second-ranking post--would strengthen California's influence in Congress. Another Californian, Rep. Tony Coelho (D-Merced), is the No.

President Bush's working relationship with House Republicans will be at stake Monday when GOP congressmen decide two bitterly contested leadership races growing out of this year's marathon budget battle.
