GOP congressional challenger Richard Sybert on Friday accused U.S. Rep. Anthony C. Beilenson(D-Woodland Hills) of waging a disgraceful reelection campaign aimed at digging up political dirt on Sybert rather than debating him squarely on public policy issues. Prompting these angry remarks was Sybert's discovery that a private researcher, using the state Public Records Act, recently obtained an inch-thick file of phone and travel records related to Sybert's former work as director of Gov.

The Democratic congressional primary in Ventura County heated up this week as Kevin Sweeney blasted opponent Anita Perez Ferguson for refusing to debate and she returned the fire, calling him "arrogant" and questioning his political ethics. "It is inconceivable to me that someone would consider running for the U. S. Congress and not be willing to debate," Sweeney said in a widely distributed statement. "It's disrespectful to the voters of this district."

The spotlight is shining on other Republican candidates, but that has not stopped two Palos Verdes Peninsula lawyers, Robert Welbourn and Don Davis, from quietly waging their own campaigns in the 42nd Congressional District. While attention has been focused on the four leading contenders in the Republican race to fill the seat being given up by Rep. Daniel E.

Rep. Carlos J. Moorhead attributes his political longevity to a mix of common sense and service to constituents. Add to that a campaign fund that is routinely 10 times greater than his nearest opponent's and you have a representative who has virtually coasted to victory every two years since 1972. Moorhead (R-Glendale) is seeking election to an 11th term in the 22nd Congressional District, which, with only minor boundary changes, will be designated the 27th District in January.

Dymally of Compton does more for the African leader than he does for the 31st. "Your congressman works for a billionaire dictator.
