Close watchers of the congressional redistricting process (let's see, that'd be Members of Congress, their staffs and all those pocket-greasers) know that in Orange County, four districts currently being represented by Republicans are being squeezed into three. Changing demographic fever--catch it!
The smart money (pocket-greasers shout out No. 2) is on Reps. John Campbell (R-Newport Beach) and 476-term, term-limits champion Dana Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach) to retain newly re-jiggered seats, while Ed Royce (R-Fullerton) and Gary Miller (R-Diamond Bar) prepare for a North County battle royale . . . with lotsa cheese (pocket-greasers, you owe me big time).

And so, in a bid to position himself as the choice of your father's Republicans, Royce cut a press release today that claims he has already lined up endorsements for the new 39th District seat straddling LA and Orange counties from: Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca; LA County Supervisors Don Knabe and Mike Antonovich; La Habra Heights council members Stan Carroll, Roy Francis, Howard Vipperman and Carl Westerhoff; Walnut Mayor Pro Tem Mary Su and Councilman Joaquin Lim; Diamond Bar's former mayor, "Everybody" Wen Chang "Tonight"; the Lincoln Clubs of Los Angeles County; Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens; OC District Attorney Tony Rackauckas; and all five OC supervisors (Shawn Nelson, Pat Bates, Bill Campbell, Janet Nguyen and John Moorlach)--with more nods rolling in, the Royce release swears.
What's curious about this is Miller's campaign site claims he's also received reelection nods from Bates, Bill Campbell, Knabe and Antonovich.
I blame the confusion on the pocket-greasers.
