This is a club of wealthy people who think big. Its members include those who once looked at Orange County's citrus groves and saw an opportunity to create cities. Others once eyed a young spokesman for General Electric named Ronald Reagan and saw the next governor of California. Now, leaders of the Republican Lincoln Club of Orange County envision a new landscape in American politics.

The Lincoln Club of Orange County threw added heft behind a struggling effort to ask voters in November to recall Gov. Gray Davis, approving a $100,000 donation Friday and promising an additional $150,000 from its members. The club includes some of the most prolific Republican donors in California. Its pledge to help the recall signals a growing acceptance for the effort among traditional GOP groups that so far have been skeptical of its success.

Two Orange County Republican organizations, from opposite wings of the party, have joined for an unprecedented voter-registration drive aimed at boosting GOP turnout in the November election.

The Irvine Co. will contribute $50,000.

The Lincoln Club, Orange County's influential organization of rich Republican political activists, announced Friday that it opposes Measure R and will give $5,000 to the Citizens Against the Tax Increase.

A majority of Orange County supervisors said Tuesday they will not support a proposal by leaders of the influential Lincoln Club that would allow voters to decide whether El Toro Marine Corps Air Station should be converted to a commercial airport.
