Friday was a good day for three candidates who are seeking positions on the Rancho Santa Margarita City Council.
A day after receiving endorsements from the Orange County Register, Tony Beall, Carol Gamble and Brad McGirr received the endorsement of the South Orange County Political Action Committee.
Beall, who has been mayor the last two years and has served on council since 2004, and Gamble, one of the city founders and an original councilwoman before resigning in 2004, are seeking the public's vote for the two four-year seats that are available.
The other person in the race who is running for one of those seats is businessman Kenney Hrabik.

McGirr, who is essentially running in tandem with Beall and Gamble—all three names appear on some election signs—is running for the two-year seat that is available to fill out the term left by Gary Thompson's resignation.
Glenn Acosta and Larry McCook are also vying for that seat on the council.
The South Orange County Political Action Committee is sponsored by the South Orange County Regional Chamber of Commerce.
The general election is Nov. 6, but absentee ballots were mailed out earlier this week.
