Abstract (Document Summary)

On the political front, [John F. Seymour] asserted that a 1992 primary challenge from conservative Rep. William E. Dannemeyer (R-Fullerton) would help rather than hurt him in a general election by defining Seymour as a fiscal conservative who is a moderate on social issues. Former San Francisco Mayor Dianne Feinstein, a liberal who barely lost the governorship to [Pete Wilson] last fall, so far is the only Democrat to announce for Seymour's seat.

Reacting to a story in Thursday's editions of The Times, Seymour said his chief aide, William Cranham, made a "mistake in judgment" during Seymour's tenure in the state Senate by twice contacting California real estate regulators about a real estate investor with whom Seymour had business dealings.

Seymour said he continues to have confidence in Cranham, who now serves as the chief of staff in Seymour's U.S. Senate office. "He didn't do anything dishonest intentionally. . . . [Bill Dannemeyer]'s not that kind of guy," Seymour said. "It was a mistake in judgment, clearly. But so? A lot of us make mistakes in judgment. I've made them." Seymour has said had been unaware of Cranham's contacts with the state officials.
