Dave Brooks What is the mark of a serious candidate? John Earl says it shouldn't be the dollar mark. Earl believes that being a serious candidate has everything to do with community involvement and little to do with how much money one can raise. "I think its pretty appalling that we view that as a standard," he said. "We should let voters decide who is a serious candidate, not dollars." Earl's assertions on money are just one of the many idealistic paradigms that define his bid for a seat on the Huntington Beach City Council.

Douglas Zimmerman What makes someone run a losing political race? That's a question, actually, that most of the candidates now campaigning for national office have to be asking themselves. Statistics show that the vast majority of incumbents for House and Senate seats -- in the neighborhood of 95% or more -- win reelection. For every sure thing, there are one, two or more candidates who will wake up on Nov. 3 on the downside of political fortune. In districts such as the 46th, which includes Huntington Beach, the odds can seem even longer because they are "safe" seats -- ones that almost by default will go to one of the country's two main parties.

POLITICS Campbell wins primary with 45.6% of votes Republican state Sen. John Campbell on Tuesday took the most votes in a special primary to fill the 48th District Congressional seat, but his 45.6% of the ballots cast wasn't enough to head off a general election, which is set for Dec. 6.

The Federal Election Commission’s first quarter fundraising reports were released to a barrage of spin, as the 46th district’s congressional candidates tried to frame their fundraising efforts as successful. According to the numbers, however, it was Democrat Debbie Cook who came out on top this quarter, with more than $47,208.01 in contributions — about 18% more than Republican incumbent Dana Rohrabacher’s $39,078. While Rohrabacher has far more cash on hand — $331,253.

State Sen. John Campbell captured by far the most votes in Tuesday's special primary for the 48th Congressional District seat, but he fell just short of locking up the seat vacated by former Rep. Chris Cox roughly two months ago. Campbell earned 46% of the votes cast, a little more than four points shy of the 50%-plus-one that he needed to win the House seat outright, according to final unofficial results from the Orange...

Dave Brooks The Democratic challenger to longtime incumbent Republican Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is hoping there is enough change in the political wind to sail him into the House of Representatives. Democrat Jim Brandt is running an aggressive campaign against 16-year incumbent Dana Rohrabacher for a seat representing Huntington Beach and other Los Angeles and Orange County cities in the 46th Congressional District. Green Party candidate Tom Lash is also running for the seat, as is Libertarian Keith Gann.

The list of Surf City residents running for one of three spots on the City Council nearly doubled last Wednesday with five candidates handing in their paperwork moments before the filing deadline. The normally nonpartisan event has taken on a new ideological significance this year with the entrance of five Libertarian candidates in the race. Many of the entrants were inspired to run by perennial candidate Norm "Firecracker" Westwell, a vocal member of the third largest political party in the country.
