A judge's ruling that a Fullerton certified public accountant cannot run for the Republican nomination for state controller leaves San Mateo County Supervisor Ruben Barrales as the only GOP candidate in the race. Sacramento County Superior Court Judge Ronald Robie ruled Wednesday that Snow Hume cannot run for the state office because he previously filed papers to run for auditor-controller of Orange County. The decision removes Hume from the June primary ballot.

When President Obama told students in Mexico that without the support of U.S. Latinos he would not be president, he wasn't talking about the GOP's Ruben Barrales. But Barrales gets the message. He is the son of immigrants, and San Mateo County's first Latino supervisor. Mexico gave him its Ohtli medal, for his work on behalf of Mexican Americans. Once a Democrat, he went to work in the George W. Bush White House and ran San Diego's regional chamber of commerce. His principal task now, as head of GROW Elect , is cultivating Latino Republican elected officials in California, not exactly fertile soil for the GOP of late.

Gov. Pete Wilson was there. So was former Gov. George Deukmejian. And Ruben Barrales--there with political junkies imbibing libations, wolfing down finger food and trading gossip last week at Stu Spencer's annual holiday party. Ruben Barrales? Barrales is a San Mateo County supervisor, unknown to voters beyond the San Francisco Peninsula. But Spencer recently introduced him with loud fanfare to insiders all over California.

When Cruz Bustamante was 17 he got his first taste of politics watching his father run for the Fresno County Board of Supervisors. "Everybody knew him," Bustamante says of his dad, who had spent over 20 years behind a barber's chair in rural Dinuba. "Everybody liked him." Or so they thought. For campaign purposes, the senior Cruz Bustamante billed himself as "Buzz," trying to convey a regular-guy image and, not incidentally, play down his ethnicity.

An aide in the Bush administration says there needs to be a solution to the Central Valley's air pollution problems, but one that doesn't penalize businesses. Ruben Barrales, the president's deputy assistant and director of intergovernmental affairs, said businesses will expand, "and we need to deal with air quality. But I don't have the solution." Barrales met with city and business leaders in Merced, Modesto and Stockton on Thursday at the invitation of state Sen. Dick Monteith (R-Modesto).

As the Republican National Committee begins to chart its path after stinging losses in recent presidential elections, a major focus of its spring meeting in Hollywood is how to draw more support from communities that have shunned the party in large numbers, notably Latinos, Asian Americans and single women. Much of Thursday's agenda is focused on reaching out to such groups. This afternoon, committee members will take part in workshops about messaging, ethnic media, minority communities and women.
