The primary victory was surprisingly easy for Rep. Jay Kim (R-Diamond Bar), the target of an ongoing federal probe into alleged violations of election, tax and labor laws stemming from his 1992 campaign. His main opponent had sent out mailers saying Kim had "betrayed" his constituency and calling him two-faced for running as a reform candidate during his last campaign. So how did Kim do so well? "Hard to say," said the nation's first Korean congressman after his victory.

Jay Kim (R-Diamond Bar) and Ken Calvert (R-Riverside), both burdened with unsavory political baggage, took early leads in their bids to retain their congressional seats in Tuesday's primary election.

Most of the 17 candidates running in the Democratic and Republican congressional primaries June 7 agree on the issues they think excite most Orange County voters: legislating business tax breaks to fix the California economy and finding ways to cut crime. But in two of the six districts--the races attracting the most attention and the greatest number of candidates--the Republican incumbents, not these hot-button issues, are the focus of the campaigning.

A Santa Ana senior citizens counselor appeared headed for victory Tuesday in a hard-fought Democratic contest for the right to challenge Rep. Robert K. Dornan in November, while Jay C. Kim, the only Orange County congressman to face a serious challenge in the primary election, appeared to have survived it easily.

Jay Kim (R-Diamond Bar) for alleged violations of federal election laws as Tuesday's primary nears. Romero's first mailer told voters they had been "betrayed" by Kim.
