Some Republican Assembly members Wednesday credited voter distaste of higher taxes for Tuesday's upset special election victory of Stockton businessman Dean Andal over Democrat Patti Garamendi, the wife of the state insurance commissioner. They also suggested that GOP Gov. Pete Wilson keep that fact in mind while trying to solve the state's $12.6-billion budget deficit with a combination of program cuts and higher levies.

Private fund-raising letters sent out by Patti Garamendi, wife of state Sen. John Garamendi, the Democratic nominee for insurance commissioner, indicate that the legislator will resign from the Senate this week, allowing his wife to run for his seat in a special election in November. Although neither John nor Patti Garamendi would confirm that plan Monday, the letter speaks of a fund-raising event in Stockton on Wednesday night as being the Patti Garamendi "campaign kickoff."

Assemblyman Patrick Johnston, no stranger to the turbulence of legislative campaigns, finds himself in the awkward spot of asking constituents to vote for him twice on Nov. 6--once for the Assembly and again for the state Senate. Is he greedy? Power hungry? No, says the five-term Stockton Democrat. Johnston complains that he was forced into seeking two offices simultaneously because of a maneuver by a Democratic "power couple"--former state Sen.

Three seats in the state Legislature are at stake in special elections Tuesday, one of which could give Senate Democrats--at least numerically--the advantage needed to overturn vetoes of Republican Gov. Pete Wilson. A light turnout is expected in Northern California districts for one seat in the Assembly and another in the Senate. In Orange County, a slightly heavier turnout is forecast for the Senate seat left vacant when John Seymour of Anaheim was appointed to the U.S. Senate.

Assemblyman John R. Lewis, a 10-year veteran legislator and one of Sacramento's most conservative lawmakers, was the top vote-getter in a special election Tuesday to replace former Anaheim state Sen. John Seymour, but he fell short of the 50% margin needed to avoid a runoff. Lewis will face Democrat Francis X. Hoffman and Libertarian Eric Sprik in a general election on May 14.
