Claudia Peschiutta GLENDALE -- The fight to gain official U.S. recognition of the Armenian Genocide has taken a step forward. As it has in the past, the California Democratic Party recently endorsed a resolution calling for official recognition of the Armenian Genocide, officials said. Approved at the party's annual convention on April 1, the resolution calls on Congress and the president to recognize the killings that occurred when Armenians were exiled by the Ottoman Turks in 1915 as a genocide.

BURBANK ? Presumed Republican nominee Sen. John McCain touched down in Burbank on Monday en route to an appearance on ?The Tonight Show? with Jay Leno and a $1,000-per-plate evening fundraiser at the Beverly Hills Hilton. McCain?s jumbo jet landed at 2:27 p.m on a small strip of runway near the Million Air aviation company, which is tucked behind Bob Hope Airport and is reserved for private jets that have in the past carried presidents, first ladies and other dignitaries, said Ron Reynolds, manager of operations for Million Air. The dignitary on Monday was the Arizona senator whose 737-400 arrived in Burbank about the same time Democrats began their convention in Denver, during which Sen. Barack Obama is set to be formally chosen as the Democratic nominee for president.

Claudia Peschiutta LOS ANGELES -- Democratic Party officials say they are ready to regain control of the House of Representatives from Republicans in November, and are confident state Sen. Adam Schiff (D-Glendale) is among those who will help them win the few seats they need to do so. Schiff has a good chance of taking the 27th Congressional District seat away from Rep. James Rogan (R-Glendale), Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee leaders told reporters during a news conference Wednesday at Staples Center.

Claudia Peschiutta Established in 1787, the Electoral College provides for an indirect popular vote of the president and is believed to keep less populous states from being ignored by candidates. Each state is accorded a number of electors equal to its total number of senators and representatives in Congress, a system that gives California 54 votes. The District of Columbia gets three votes, which brings the electoral total to 538. A candidate needs 270 votes to win. The presidential candidate who receives the most votes in a state usually gets all of the state's electoral votes.

A flurry of bills introduced this week heralded the start of the 111th Congress. Representatives from across the country introduced hundreds of pieces of legislation since the U.S. House of Representatives convened Tuesday. Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff was responsible for at least two, cosponsoring one bill and individually introducing another. H.R. 175, which Schiff introduced with Democratic Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, from Arizona, would expand the federal government’s ability to purchase solar, wind and other alternative energies for government buildings.

BURBANK — Campaigning began in the parking lot for many candidates at a California Democratic Party delegate election Sunday. A mix of campaigners used fliers, songs and one-on-one discussions to vie for support from the steady trickle of voters who passed in and out of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees office, where the voting took place. Twelve candidates were elected to represent the 43rd District on the California Democratic Party State Central Committee, with Lee Wochner, the founder of the Burbank Democratic Club, chosen to be the district’s representative on the party’s statewide executive board, which helps to craft the party’s platform.
