In your article "40th District: Republicans' Coveted Gem" (April 11), you, as on previous occasions, state that the views of the candidates running for the 40th Congressional (District) seat are very similar.

Rosenberg, on the other hand, is still on the sidelines. It seems he can't decide whether to support or oppose the county's no-growth initiative scheduled for the June ballot.

State Sen. Marian Bergeson (R-Newport Beach) on Monday opted out of the 40th Congressional District race, opening the way for a tough Republican battle to succeed Rep. Robert E. Badham. In announcing her decision, Bergeson said, "The advantages in Congress really were not that compelling in comparison to what I could do in the state Legislature."
