Although the area is one of the most solidly Republican in the state, three Democrats are vying for the right to take on the winner of the hotly contested GOP primary battle in the 42nd Congressional District. Republicans hold a 52% to 37% lead in voter registration in the district, which has been represented for a decade by Rep. Daniel E. Lungren (R-Long Beach). He is stepping down to pursue the state treasurer's post.

Quietly, while Los Angeles' attention has been riveted on the Rodney G. King case and the riots that resulted from the not guilty verdicts, a campaign has been under way to pick a new member of Congress to represent downtown. For much of the last three decades, the Civic Center and surrounding area has been the domain of longtime Democratic Rep. Edward R. Roybal, the acknowledged leader of Latino politicians in Los Angeles.

In a year when many incumbents are running for cover, it would seem that attorney Mark A. Robbins has an opportunity to win a plum congressional seat representing much of the Westside and southern San Fernando Valley. Robbins, 33, is a "fiscally responsive but socially aware" candidate waging a well-financed and politically sophisticated campaign against an incumbent forced to run in an unfamiliar new district.

Sources close to Assemblyman Tom McClintock said Wednesday that he will seek the Republican nomination to oppose veteran Democratic Rep. Anthony C. Beilenson in a newly created congressional district that lumps the western San Fernando Valley and eastern Ventura County. "He just gave me a courtesy call," said one well-placed Republican source. "He'll be announcing that he is running in the 24th District."

A federal panel redrawing Georgia's congressional districts formally declared a second majority-black district unconstitutional Friday. The three judges had stated in October that they intended to declare the 2nd District illegal but did not issue an official ruling at the time. The ruling was filed in Augusta, where the panel is working on a new congressional map.

Incumbent Democrat Howard L. Berman of Panorama City, who is seeking a fifth term in the 26th Congressional District, faces an under-funded campaign challenge from Republican businessman Roy Dahlson of Van Nuys. Like his colleague Henry A. Waxman in the neighboring 24th District, Berman is regarded as a heavyweight in the House and in California politics. Before his election to Congress in 1982, he served 10 years in the state Assembly, where he lost a bitter fight for the speakership.

Some like their politics nasty. But the candidates in the 43rd Congressional District clearly prefer theirs nice. In an election year dominated by ruthless character assaults, the match between Mark Takano and Ken Calvert has been remarkably mud-free--a gentlemanly duel of good manners and cheerful disagreements over the issues.

The race for Ventura County's congressional seat heated up Thursday when more than 100 residents signed a "We the People" letter deploring what they said was Rep. Elton Gallegly's "racially motivated politics" in an appeal for campaign dollars. The signatures were collected by the campaign staff and supporters of Democrat Anita Perez Ferguson of Oxnard, who is engaged in a tight race with the Simi Valley Republican incumbent in the 23rd Congressional District.

Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley) was easily winning renomination in the GOP primary election Tuesday, and appeared to be trouncing wealthy Calabasas developer Sang Korman for the second time in as many years. In early returns, Gallegly was leading Korman by a 3-1 margin, despite the Korean-born challenger's unusual use of television ads attacking Gallegly's voting record and Gallegly's disputed role in an internal FBI investigation of four Los Angeles-based agents.
