September 21, 1993|By Kerry O'Rourke | Kerry O'Rourke,Staff Writer

U.S. Rep. Robert K. Dornan, a California Republican who is a substitute host on Rush Limbaugh's radio show, will speak at a Republican fund-raiser in Westminster Nov. 11.

Mr. Dornan, a conservative from Orange County, will speak at the Carroll County Republican Central Committee event at Wilhelm Ltd.

A $35 ticket covers dinner. A $75 ticket includes the chance to attend a reception and be photographed with Mr. Dornan or Rep. Roscoe G. Bartlett, a Republican who represents Maryland's Sixth District.

The event will start at 6 p.m.

Mr. Dornan, 60, likely will talk about what's happening in Congress and "what's happening inside the [capital] Beltway from a conservative Republican viewpoint," said his spokesman, Brian Keeter.

Mr. Dornan also probably will talk about the 1994 elections and what Republicans can do to elect a president in 1996, Mr. Keeter said. "His speeches generally cover a wide range of topics."

The California congressman was elected in 1977 and is serving his eighth term in Congress representing California's 46th District. He is a member of the Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence and the House Armed Services Committee.

In the 1960s and 1970s, he produced and was the host of radio and television public affairs shows in Los Angeles. He won two Emmys.

The congressman marched with Martin Luther King Jr. in Washington in 1963 and has been active in efforts to free prisoners of war in Vietnam.

He served in the Air Force.

Mr. Dornan has been filling in as the host on Mr. Limbaugh's radio show, which focuses on current events from a conservative viewpoint, for several years, Mr. Keeter said.

For tickets to the fund-raiser, call Gary Bauer at 239-8309, Regan Cherney at 876-2039 or Nancy Stocksdale at 848-8088.
