The Eastside Assembly race to succeed Charles M. Calderon has turned into a high-stakes turf battle marked by an unusual split among local Latino political leaders. Calderon, fresh from an easy win in a special state Senate election in the San Gabriel Valley, is backing a longtime aide to fill his seat in the Assembly. A victory by the aide, Marta Maestas, probably would boost Calderon's prestige and demonstrate his power within the Latino political community.
