HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (AP) - Republicans are defending a string of endangered US House seats in California, but one of the toughest races involves two of their own. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher is being challenged in the coastal 48th District by a one-time protégé, lawyer Scott Baugh. The younger Baugh headed the Orange County GOP for a decade and says it's time for change in Washington. But Rohrabacher calls him an unethical lobbyist with questionable conservative values. The congressman is seeking a 16th term.
