The article focuses on the political personality and government of the U.S. states, that were expected to make a mark in 2004. As expected, State Senator, John Campbell continued to play a hot hand in 2004. Campbell tried to keep Californian Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger toeing a fiscally conservative line. Campbell scored a key victory against his Orange County Democrat nemesis, State Senator Joe Dutin, Garden Grove, by engineering a budget-compromise provision that severely weakened Dutin's workplace protection bill. Irvine, California ended an eventful year with a bang. Critics of outgoing Mayor Larry Agran launched an assault on his ethics, casting doubt on whether he would win a council seat as previously expected. Agran emerged with more votes than any other council candidate. Agran is sure to be under intense public scrutiny next year, which may hamper his influence and agenda.
