The immensity of the task facing President Bush's reelection campaign was evident Saturday as Republicans began mobilizing in the San Gabriel Valley, a suburban area that reflects many of California's political currents. The microcosm aspect of the valley drew me there, first with Gov. Bill Clinton, the Democratic presidential nominee, two weeks ago, and last weekend with Bush campaigners.

Embattled Rep. James E. Rogan (R-Glendale), fighting for political survival in the most expensive House of Representatives race in the nation, debuted a cable television ad this week that mentions his controversial role in President Clinton's impeachment trial. That Rogan would bring up his impeachment role in the rapidly changing Sunland/Tujunga-to-San Marino 27th Congressional District is somewhat surprising.

It's not easy to create a political dynasty these days, as Pete Schabarum is finding out. Once it was standard procedure. Schabarum himself was the designated heir of the previous 1st District supervisor, Frank Bonelli. As Bonelli lay dying of cancer in 1972, the businessmen who dominated district politics caucused secretly at a country club to pick a successor. When Bonelli died, Gov. Ronald Reagan was persuaded to appoint Schabarum, then a state assemblyman, who was subsequently elected.

The San Fernando Valley area and Ventura County delegation to this week's Republican National Convention is confident the Bush-Quayle ticket will be reelected but delegates are divided over questions of abortion and whether the country is headed in the right direction, according to a Times survey. The delegates and alternates to the Houston convention approve of the way President Bush has handled domestic and foreign affairs, although they give him higher marks on foreign policy.

Assemblywoman Cathie Wright of Simi Valley is a perfect illustration of how the abortion issue has complicated the lives of conservative Republican legislators. This year, she voted to support Gov. George Deukmejian's big reduction in state funds for family planning clinics that serve the poor. Her vote helped close 17 of the 80 clinics in Los Angeles County.

A newly elected member of the Los Angeles County Republican Central Committee has caused a controversy by urging it to revoke the charter of the predominantly homosexual Log Cabin Republican Club of Los Angeles County. "I believe that by recognizing this special-interest group, the county committee is making it look as though this group is representative of Republicans," Glenn Abel, who was elected to the committee last November, said Wednesday.

It seems an unlikely match: conservative congressional nominee Howard P. (Buck) McKeon and the Log Cabin Federation, a gay Republican advocacy group. But there it was in McKeon's recent campaign report--two contributions from the Log Cabin Political Action Committee totaling $350 during his tough Republican primary campaign for a newly drawn seat in northern Los Angeles County. The money, McKeon said last week, was news to him.

Why has Mayor Bradly opted to foist off on the people of north Los Angeles County a proposal to establish a new prison far from the courts in an area that is basically agricultural? Thirty-five percent of all inmates in the prison system come from the City of Los Angeles, but Bradley doesn't want to take the moral responsibility to house even a portion of those inmates in a downtown Los Angeles location, which would be near the courts and families of the inmates. The inescapable logic of this excellent location apparently has eluded the mayor's ability to grasp the basic fundamentals of the efficient operation of such a prison facility.

SACRAMENTO -- The chairman of the Los Angeles County Republican Party called Tuesday for Sen. Roderick Wright to resign after a jury found the lawmaker guilty of eight felonies involving lying about where he lived. But Republican and Democratic colleagues said it was too early to demand such action by the Inglewood Democrat. “It proves beyond any doubt there is something seriously wrong with the absolute power that Democrats have amassed in Sacramento and the lengths they have gone and will go to collect and keep it,” said Mark Vafiades, chairman of the Republican Party of Los Angeles County.

The Los Angeles County district attorney's office has notified those who raised residency issues about candidates in an election for a Glendale-area state Assembly seat last year that reviews of their complaints have been closed without further action. Supporters of Assemblyman Mike Gatto (D-Silver Lake) and also of his opponent, Republican businessman Sunder Ramani, filed complaints alleging that the other candidate had violated state elections requirements for district residency and voting.
