If there were any uncertainties about Bill Horn’s intention to run for reelection yet again in 2014, the incumbent GOP county supervisor dispelled them on July 4 by signing a “candidate intention statement” he filed with the county Registrar of Voters a week later…North County Republican congressman Darrell Issa joined three of his GOP House colleagues as honorary cohosts of a July 16 fundraiser for their fellow representative Dan Lungren. The lunch, with tabs ranging from $250 to $5000, was held at the Newport Beach offices of the Inland Group, according to an invitation posted online by the Sunlight Foundation’s Party Time website.

County supervisor Mike Antonovich.
