NBC opens a 'West Wing' in Orange County

Democratic character's run for Congress offers a look at O.C. that seems more reel than real.

The Orange County Register

The chief speechwriter for America's favorite prime-time president is headed for Orange County.

Tonight, Sam Seaborn will leave NBC's "The West Wing" to begin a run for election in a congressional district that includes Newport Beach and Laguna Beach.

One result of the story line is that the country gets a glimpse of Orange County to follow up on what it saw during the World Series.

"I don't think anybody has fully portrayed Orange County � not 'West Wing' or elsewhere," said Rep. Loretta Sanchez, D-Santa Ana, whose 1996 upset of Republican incumbent Robert Dornan is echoed in the show's plot. "I still believe that people don't fully understand Orange County."

Indeed, the show � an inside look at the lives of staff members in the West Wing of the White House � plays on the county's reputation as a bastion of white Republicanism, but the stereotype is growing increasingly inappropriate. In nine of the county's 34 cities, the majority is no longer white. And Hispanics will make up the majority of the county's population by 2020, according to projections. Following up Sanchez's 1996 win, county Democrats also won seats in the state Senate and Assembly � although the county remains overwhelmingly Republican.
