State Sen. Kevin Murray, one of 18 candidates vying in the April 10 special election in the 32nd Congressional District, won the support of Rep.

"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.
