Orange County was once an instant synonym for Republican power, and the GOP's dominance looked impregnable. Now, battered by the recent election results and dismayed by the slow, steady decline in party registration, Republicans here are struggling to craft a new strategy. The percentage of registered Republicans has eroded - it now stands at 41% - and the party has long since lost control of the political districts that envelop the county seat of Santa Ana, a Latino-dominated city of 330,000, and surrounding communities in the county's core.

The newest member of the California Assembly is a baby-faced political novice who won his seat with a strong assist from some of the state's most powerful Republican leaders. Scott Baugh, a Huntington Beach resident and the most conservative candidate in the contest to replace Assemblywoman Doris Allen (R-Cypress), swept to victory Tuesday on the strength of what his supporters called his status as a "loyal Republican"--a none-too-subtle jab at his predecessor.

Former Assemblyman Scott Baugh and his firm, Manatt Phelps & Phillips, will take over lobbying duties for Orange County beginning Jan. 1, besting a bid by a firm affiliated with former Assemblyman Curt Pringle. The $20,000-a-month contract replaces the county's longtime ties to lobbyist Dennis Carpenter, who retired this year. Carpenter, also a former legislator, became the county lobbyist in 1980. The contract isn't the most expensive lobbying agreement in the county.

Newly elected Republican Assemblyman Scott Baugh acknowledged through his lawyer Wednesday that he personally repaid in cash a $1,000 contribution from the husband of onetime Democratic challenger Laurie Campbell. Baugh made the cash payment to the Campbells at his house, handing over a sealed envelope to them on the evening of Sept. 21, the day that Laurie Campbell entered the race, said Ron Brower, Baugh's lawyer, who said he speaking for the assemblyman.

Overcoming enormous odds, Assemblyman Scott Baugh of Huntington Beach transformed himself from pariah to pooh-bah in three years at the state Capital. His comeback, capped last week when he was elected Republican leader of the Assembly, was all the more remarkable because his political career seemed doomed even before it got underway. Baugh, though, never saw it that way.

Assembly Republican leader Scott Baugh agreed Tuesday to pay a civil fine of $47,900 for nine violations of the state Political Reform Act, ending a political misconduct case that began with Baugh's election in 1995. The fine, imposed by the Fair Political Practices Commission, concludes a long-standing controversy in which Baugh (R-Huntington Beach) once faced felony and misdemeanor charges stemming from an accusation that Republicans schemed to split the Democratic vote in a special election.

A major reform that would change the way grand juries do business in California by letting defense attorneys into the proceedings is expected to pass the state Legislature this year over the objections of county prosecutors. The reform was sparked by the traumatic personal experience of Assemblyman Scott Baugh (R-Huntington Beach), who was indicted for alleged criminal campaign finance reporting violations in 1996. Baugh said he wanted to tell his story to the grand jury.

Re "Pacheco Loses Top Assembly Post to Baugh," April 7: Following November's dismal election performance it appeared, however briefly, that California's Republican Party was finally getting the message. As a lifelong, devout Republican, I breathed a sigh of relief when the party chose Rod Pacheco to lead the GOP Assembly caucus. The message seemed to validate everything that I had been trying to convey to my all-too-liberal cadre of friends and family for years. Namely, that the Republican Party is not the cell of right-wing monsters that the media have made it out to be, and that the Republican Party is a colorblind model of inclusion that is not leery of the state's growing Hispanic population.

Last month's election results show that the Orange County GOP has a back-door affirmative-action program for indicted felons and other incompetents. Scott Baugh's insufferable victory statement declaring his election to be a renunciation of Dist. Atty. Michael R. Capizzi diagnoses him as a victim of mad cow disease. Baugh's reelection in November would put Orange County in the same company with Boston (who reelected James Curley as mayor while he was in prison), Washington, D.C., (who elected Marion Barry as mayor after he got out of prison)

Orange County lawmaker Scott Baugh has rejoined the Assembly GOP leadership after a 4 1/2-hour caucus session that defused a potential challenge to Republican Assembly leader Rod Pacheco. After the lengthy meeting Tuesday, Baugh and Pacheco said differences between the two factions of the caucus have been resolved. "We're unified, and that's the story," Pacheco said.
