Robert K. Dornan. Mike Farber, a heavily endorsed Santa Ana businessman, is narrowly ahead of Robert John Banuelos, with 4,625 votes or about 29% of the vote.

The 1992 Democratic opponent of Rep. Robert K. Dornan broke ranks with his party Wednesday, endorsing the eight-term Republican congressman over his challenger, Mike Farber. At a news conference at Dornan campaign headquarters, Robert Banuelos said Farber's recent attacks on the incumbent's moral character motivated him to jump party lines. The Farber campaign has sent out two mailers since Oct. 15 in the 46th District accusing Dornan of physically attacking his wife.

Democrats love to beat on Bob, but the question is: Can they beat him at the polls? Bob, of course, is Robert K. Dornan (R-Garden Grove), a 15-year conservative congressman with a national reputation for acid-tongued attacks against his political enemies.

Rep. Robert K. Dornan's attack-style politics and millions of dollars in contributions have long made him Orange County's 400-pound gorilla at the polls--able to scare off formidable rivals and easily defeat those who challenge him. Two years ago, Dornan had just one opponent--a Democrat who withdrew shortly after the race started, even though her party held a majority among voters registered in Dornan's central county district. This time, though, things are different.

A woman in Maine, explaining her absence from the voting booth said, "I don't vote--it only encourages them." Well, candidates, and the community, didn't get much encouragement in Orange County last Tuesday. Only three out of every 10 registered voters bothered to go to the polls. That's an all-time low in voter turnout. Whether the reason was apathy, disgust, disinterest, or whatever, it's a sorry lesson in civics.
