    Howard Kaloogian is one of those rare politicians who may have spent more time in the public eye since leaving office than he did while he was in it. Since being termed out of his San Diego-area Assembly seat in 2000, Kaloogian has had a hand in some of the more visible conservative media efforts in recent years. The organization he founded, Move America Forward, has made headlines with campaigns that took on liberal icons such as Cindy Sheehan and Michael Moore. Republican political consultant Mark Bogetich, who counts himself as a philosophical supporter of many of Move America Forward's...

  • Timing may be on the side of Democrat Francine Busby (The 'Duke' Factor?)

    Some people have a knack for being in the right place at the right time – Francine Busby might just make a career of it. Two years ago, she was a no-chance Democrat who agreed to run in a heavily Republican congressional district – against a wildly popular Republican incumbent and war hero – because no one else would. Few paid attention to the self-described soccer mom whose eight-year career in the travel industry ended in 1981, and whose political career amounted to winning a school board seat in a two-school district. National Democratic Party committees didn't give her money....

    SAN MARCOS ----- There's been a deluge of TV advertising, extensive newspaper and TV coverage and one candidate forum after the other. And yet, one can only wonder how many voters have had the time or energy to educate themselves on the qualifications, political beliefs and personalities of all of the 18 candidates in the running for the 50th District Congressional seat formerly held by disgraced Republican Randy "Duke" Cunningham. With less than three weeks until the April 11 special election to pick a temporary replacement for Cunningham, the latest opportunity for voters to get to know the candidates came...

    In their battle to replace former Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham, Republicans are embracing their party's ideals while distancing themselves from its record in Washington. As deficits balloon and scandals multiply under a Republican-controlled Congress, these candidates are touting independence over party loyalty and lashing out at the GOP as often as they criticize Democrats. Setting the tone is millionaire businessman Eric Roach, whose television commercials ask, “When did Congress begin losing touch?” “I think it began when Republicans quit being Republicans,” Roach answers in the ad. “You know, they were sent to Congress to bring the budget in balance, to...

    Republican Congressional candidate and millionaire Eric Roach on Friday notified the Federal Election Commission and competing candidates in the 50th District race that he has surpassed the self-funding limit that triggers the so-called "Millionaire's Amendment." That little-known rule allows competing candidates, in some cases, to triple the limit on individual campaign donations. In Roach's notification, he reports that as of Thursday, he had spent $750,000 on the April 11 special election where voters will pick a replacement for former U.S. Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham, who resigned from office in November after pleading guilty in federal court to receiving more than...

    NORTH COUNTY ---- For the last few months, Republican political consultants, campaign managers and others have been predicting the 50th Congressional District race to replace former U.S. Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham would turn into a mudslinging free-for-all. In the wake of Cunningham's resignation in November after pleading guilty to taking millions in bribes, the number of candidates grew to 14 as of late last week. And the more the competition increased, the more likely it became that dirty politics would come into play, those political observers predicted. It appears the pundits may have been right. In recent days, two so-called...

    The recent spotlight on the impending execution of multiple-murderer Stanley “Tookie” Williams has once again highlighted the flaws in California’s death penalty law. Williams was put to death at 12:01 a.m. on Tuesday, after he was denied clemency by Governor Schwarzenegger. Williams was convicted in 1981 of murdering four people and sentenced to death. Yet 26 years after his victims took their final breaths, the killer still lives. His lawyers have continued to maneuver to thwart the sentence duly handed down by a jury of his peers until the very end. Williams’s case demonstrates just how dysfunctional the death penalty...

    The downfall of former Rep. Randy ''Duke'' Cunningham in a bribery scandal has cleared the way for a surprisingly competitive race for his San Diego County congressional seat, a contest that will test the strength of Democratic efforts to regain control of Congress. In a poor political climate for the GOP, analysts say, a suburban coastal district of California -- even one that leans as Republican as Cunningham's -- is just the kind that could prove the leading edge of a potential national tide against the party. Yet Democratic candidate Francine Busby faces a steep uphill battle, thanks to a...

    SAN DIEGO (AP) - Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger on Thursday set an April 11 special election to replace former San Diego area U.S. Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham. Cunningham, a 64-year-old Republican, officially resigned his 50th Congressional district seat Dec. 1 after pleading guilty to accepting $2.4 million in bribes from defense contractors and others in exchange for government business and other favors. If no candidate wins a majority in the primary, the top vote-getters in each party will face off June 6, the date of a statewide primary. County officials had asked Schwarzenegger set the April 11 special election to consolidate...

    http://www.americanpatrol.com/ Republican state Sen. Bill Morrow of Oceanside said he organized the forum to discuss how defense of the nation begins at the border, and that he timed it for yesterday based entirely on Tancredo's busy schedule. Morrow said he has talked to Tancredo for months, even before embattled Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham, R-Rancho Santa Fe, announced he will not seek re-election in the 50th District. Morrow said yesterday he will run for Cunningham's seat next year. "I know what the solution is," Morrow said. "We are not controlling our borders and it's a sea coming through. We are capable...

    CARLSBAD ---- Thursday night's town-hall meeting on illegal immigration at Carlsbad High School was a decidedly lopsided affair. Those who showed up after about 4 p.m. for the 7 p.m. meeting didn't get one of the coveted tickets to attend the forum, titled "The Illegal Immigration Crisis." One anti-illegal immigration advocate inside the school's 400-seat capacity Community Cultural Arts Center said he believed the reason that so few immigration-rights advocates made it inside was because radio talk-show host Roger Hedgecock, who emceed the meeting, gave his listeners a heads-up on his Wednesday radio show. "Roger told his listeners that we...
  • Carlsbad Unified School District to allow immigration meeting

    With a lawsuit hanging over the school district's head, Carlsbad Unified School District Superintendent John Roach announced late Tuesday that he was backing down from his cancellation of a town-hall meeting on illegal immigration. The decision ---- "effective immediately," Roach said ---- came on the eve of a court hearing on the matter. Citing concerns about possible acts of violence by protesters, Roach last week canceled a permit that the school district had issued in early July to state Sen. Bill Morrow, R-Oceanside, to hold the forum, titled "The Illegal Immigration Crisis." The forum is scheduled for Thursday. But Roach...

    Facing the threat of legal action, Carlsbad Unified School District Superintendent John Roach decided late Tuesday to allow a forum about illegal immigration to be held at the Carlsbad Cultural Arts Center. "I believe the first amendment issue regarding free speech outweighs the concerns I had regarding crowd behavior," he said. State Sen. Bill Morrow filed suit against Roach and the Carlsbad Unified School District on Monday after the school chief withdrew the availability of the center for security concerns. The case, scheduled to be heard in Vista Superior Court early Wednesday, has been dropped. Last month, Morrow received a...

    NORTH COUNTY ---- An attorney for state Sen. Bill Morrow filed a lawsuit Monday asking a Superior Court judge to force the Carlsbad Unified School District to rescind its superintendent's cancelation of a town-hall meeting on immigration, the attorney said. Attorney Peter Lepiscopo, who represents Morrow, said he expects a judge to decide within a day or two whether the meeting, originally scheduled for Thursday, can be held at the Carlsbad Community Cultural Arts Center on the Carlsbad High School campus. Morrow described the lawsuit as a "last resort" and an effort to protect free speech.

    So a local pol wants to have a town hall forum on a pressing matter of interest. That should be a simple affair, right? Not if the issue is illegal immigration. State Senator Bill Morrow wanted to have a forum on the subject in the Carlsbad, Ca Cultural Arts Center. He invited Jim Gilchrist, Minuteman Founder and Congressman Tom Tancredo. The approvals were granted and invitations sent. Until John Roach, Superintendent of the Carlsbad Unified School District, got cold feet. It seems at other Gilchrist events, the supporters of illegal immigrants have gotten violent. So the natural bureaucratic response is...

Why, Busby's so hot she could change her name to Buzz-by. "This is going to be the hottest race on the West Coast," the Cardiff candidate pledges with a sunny, know-it-all grin. "This is going to be the most competitively fought congressional seat this side of the Rockies. It's not a blow-away for Republicans in this district anymore."

    Departure likely to block Democrats' shot at districtRep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham's announcement that he will not run for re-election next year did nothing to lift the spreading ethical cloud hanging over him, but it lifted a cloud of political angst over the Republican Party and touched off an instant scramble among ambitious Republicans. The Rancho Santa Fe Republican is under investigation by a federal grand jury, the FBI and the U.S. Attorney's Office in Washington over his financial ties to defense contractor Mitchell Wade. In announcing July 14 that he would not seek a ninth term, Cunningham, 63, maintained he...

    In Washington tonight, a bold new effort to solve our nation's border crisis. Congressman Tom Tancredo of Colorado, Senator James Inhofe of Oklahoma today introduced what they called a landmark immigration reform bill. It's called the Real Guest Act, which would raise border security by adding the number of Border Patrol agents on duty. The legislation would also help U.S. businesses verify their employees are in this country legally. It would penalize employers that knowingly hire illegal aliens. The bill would eventually create a temporary guest worker program, but only after our border has been secured. Congressman Tancredo says the...

    Orange County state senators split along party lines last week on a bill to ban gay marriage. Sen. Bill Morrow, R-Oceanside, sponsored SCA1, a proposed constitutional amendment to mandate that only marriages between man and woman are recognized in the state. Morrow, whose district includes San Clemente and San Juan Capistrano, cited the support of 61 percent of voters for Proposition 22 in 2000, which recognized only male-female marriages. In March, a San Francisco Superior Court judge declared the law discriminatory and unconstitutional. Morrow presented his bill before the Senate Judiciary Committee, chaired by Sen. Joe Dunn, D-Santa Ana. Dunn...
