In a decision expected to ignite an intense political battle over who will be the next representative from the overwhelmingly Democratic 32nd House District in West Los Angeles, Bettye Dixon, the widow of Rep. Julian Dixon, said Wednesday that she will not seek election to the seat left vacant by the recent death of her husband. "I am not going to run for my husband's seat," Dixon said in an interview with The Times. "I have a business that I am operating. It is the business that I enjoy."

On the day Rep. Julian Dixon died, Assemblyman Roderick Wright filed the papers for a special election to fill the suddenly vacant seat. "It is hard to raise money to run an effective campaign," Wright said. "You want to file your papers as quickly as you can." Four days later, a day before Dixon was laid to rest, another politician in a hurry, state Sen. Kevin Murray of Culver City, sent in his papers for the election.

Wrapping up a special election to fill the seat vacated when U.S. Rep. Julian Dixon died last year, four candidates vying for the chance to represent the 32nd Congressional District are making a last push today to turn out their supporters. Diane Watson--who served for 20 years in the state Senate and was the leading vote-getter in the April primary--is pitted against Republican Noel Irwin Hentschel, Green Party candidate Donna J. Warren and Reform Party candidate Ezola Foster.

The congressional race between former state Sen. Diane Watson, businesswoman Noel Irwin Hentschel and two minor-party candidates has boiled down to a debate over debates, as three contenders chomp for the chance to take on Watson, but Watson continues to decline. Wednesday night, the candidates met to compare views at an event in the Crenshaw district sponsored by the Los Angeles Press Club and the Black Chamber of Commerce of L.A. County. They found Watson's chair empty.

Sanford Kahn admits that 11-term Congressman Glenn M. Anderson would be a hard man to beat. But he says that doesn't mean other candidates have to knuckle under. "I don't care if he talks to the Lord every day," Kahn said. "No one should be in Congress 22 years. . . . I am against the professional politician." Kahn is one of the two Republicans competing for the right to run against U.S. Rep. Anderson (D-San Pedro)--one of the most entrenched of the Southland's congressional incumbents.

Has Rep. Glenn M. Anderson spent too many years in Congress? The question, being raised by some of Anderson's colleagues on Capitol Hill, is at the core of Republican Sanford W. Kahn's campaign to unseat the 11-term San Pedro Democrat in the Nov. 6 election. Anderson, 77, said he is in his political prime.
