Forget health care reform and gun control, Bosnia and nuclear proliferation. What's caused the most fur to fly in the race for the Republican nomination in the 24th Congressional District has been more personal. Who is the native son? Who is the seasoned businessman? Debate over these topics has turned candidates from polite to testy. "I am the only candidate here who has actually run a business," Richard Sybert, an attorney, former Cabinet-level aide to Gov.

Camarillo tax lawyer Kevin Staker, a political neophyte, said Wednesday he intends to run for the Republican nomination against Assemblyman Tom McClintock (R-Thousand Oaks) in the June primary election. Staker, 35, said he filed papers declaring he will run against the four-term incumbent in the 36th Assembly District, which covers southern Ventura County. Winning the GOP nomination is usually tantamount to being elected in the Republican-dominated district.

Rep. Bobbi Fiedler plans to marry the top aide with whom she has been indicted for allegedly trying to bribe state Sen. Ed Davis to drop out of the Republican primary campaign for the U.S. Senate, she said Wednesday in Washington. Fiedler, 48, a divorcee with a son and a daughter, told United Press International in her Capitol Hill office that a white-gold diamond ring on her left hand was given to her by Paul Clarke, with whom she lives.

The "character" issue has been raised in the 40th Congressional District Republican primary campaign. Irvine City Councilman C. David Baker has been accused of having an extramarital relationship. Baker has neither admitted nor denied the accusation. At issue is not whether his accuser was an agent of any other candidate in the race or whether the press has crossed the line of propriety in asking such questions about a public person's private life. The real issue is whether Baker has the requisite character traits--honesty, truthfulness and sound judgment--to serve in the House of Representatives.

The Senate on Friday confirmed Andrew H. Card Jr., the deputy White House chief of staff, as the new transportation secretary. Card, 44, was approved on a voice vote to succeed Samuel K. Skinner in the post. Skinner resigned in December to become President Bush's chief of staff. Card said during his confirmation hearing that he would quickly begin spending money from a six-year transportation bill that Congress passed last fall in an effort to help boost the economy.

There he goes again. Harold Ezell, Western regional commissioner of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, was on location this time, helping Los Angeles Supervisor Mike Antonovich to film a television commercial for his U.S. Senate Republican primary campaign against the background of the Mexican-U.S. border that is policed by Ezell's forces. Ezell perceived no wrong in his personal role facilitating the filming.

Rick Santorum's surge in the Republican primary campaign has inevitably prompted greater scrutiny in the news media and blogosphere. On Tuesday, as he arrived in Arizona for a campaign swing and televised debate, Santorum suggested that he didn't find the attention entirely flattering. Speaking to a Lincoln Day luncheon sponsored by Maricopa County Republicans in Phoenix, Santorum asked the audience: “Will you be the generation that sat on the sidelines and watched as candidate after candidate comes up, and the national media takes their whack at them to try to destroy them in every way possible, as they've done with every single Republican candidate, and as they will between now the election?

To begin at the beginning, Ira Reiner, the district attorney of Los Angeles County, did not ask the grand jury to indict Rep. Bobbi Fiedler (R-Los Angeles). He says he did not think he could make a case that she tried to get state Sen. Ed Davis (R-Valencia) to pull out of the Republican primary campaign for the right to challenge Sen. Alan Cranston (D-Calif.) in November. The grand jury, with a mind of its own, did it anyway. Now Reiner has asked that the charge be dropped.

Rep. Jack Kemp (R-N.Y.) is back in the good graces of real American conservatives--the sort who swear by the truths written in Human Events, who hail Barry Goldwater as the godfather of their movement and whose fondest dreams would be fulfilled if only there was some way to elect--or anoint--Ronald Reagan to a third term. Kemp did this by attacking Secretary of State George P. Shultz during an address to last weekend's Conservative Political Action Conference.

On Sunday, Rick Santorum spat out the B and S word at New York Times reporter Jeff Zeleny, who had asked him an annoying question. The testy exchange demonstrated how candidates, reporters and, very likely, the public, have grown weary of the unending Republican primary campaign. Santorum, Mitt Romney and Newt Gingrich have been giving variations of the same stump speech at least since January. Journalists who have been trailing the candidates have heard it all so often they can recite the lines themselves.
