Sounding themes familiar from her late husband's 14 campaigns, Doris Matsui handily won a special election to fill his term and will become the newest member of the U.S. House of Representatives. With her win in a 12-candidate field, Matsui, a lobbyist and former Clinton White House official, completed what her television ads called a "uniquely Sacramento story." She succeeds her husband, the late Democratic U.S. Rep. Robert Matsui, 63, who died Jan.

WASHINGTON - The disabled Carnival cruise ship is now docked but the tale of its wretched odyssey back to land has made its way to Capitol Hill. Sen. John D. Rockefeller IV (D-W.Va.), chairman of the Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee, fired off a letter Friday asking the Coast Guard commandment to brief his panel on its investigation into the cruise ship Triumph. "Horrified" was how Rockefeller described his response to the accounts of "unbearable living conditions aboard the ship.

A Democratic state senator considered the most formidable challenger to Doris Matsui's bid to succeed her late husband in Congress has decided not to seek the seat. "I've decided not to go through with this," Sen. Deborah Ortiz said Friday, calling her choice the "right thing to do." The decision largely clears the way for Matsui to easily run for the seat of Robert T. Matsui, 63, who represented Sacramento for 26 years and died Jan. 1 of complications from a rare bone marrow disease.

Veteran California Rep. Robert Matsui and his wife, Doris, the top Asian American staffer in the White House, had every reason to believe that their labors on behalf of President Clinton's reelection provided a perfect match for their political interests as well as their heritage.

The cover photograph in a recent issue of Roll Call, the wonkish but well-read Capitol Hill newspaper, showed Rep. Robert T. Matsui and three House members milling about at a pro-NAFTA news conference. The headline read: "Well, We've Got Four Votes," a wry reminder of the grim arithmetic facing the trade treaty's backers. Somewhere among the House's 435 members, a majority of 218 must be cajoled into supporting the controversial North American Free Trade Agreement.

A day after a congressional subcommittee held a hearing to scrutinize safety on the high seas, Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.) announced plans Thursday to sponsor legislation that would force cruise lines to report crimes and develop better methods of collecting crime scene evidence. Rep. Doris Matsui (D-Sacramento) will sponsor similar legislation in the House.

An encouraging--if relatively little noticed--development this political year is the emergence of Asian-Americans as significant new players in the political process. Record numbers ran as candidates, and an unprecedented number won election. Both Democrats and Republicans courted the Asian-American communities as important swing votes in California, New York, Texas, Illinois, Michigan, New Jersey and Washington.

Re "Judgment Day: Gingrich Seems a Hypocrite, While Clinton Seems a Cynic," by William Schneider, Opinion, Dec. 29: I am deeply concerned for the health of Schneider as he joins the rest of the media in bending over backward to equate the multitude of sins, lies and crimes of our president with the hideous clerical error of our House speaker. It seems that no mention of Whitewater, Filegate, the travel office, Vince Foster, the billing records, John Huang, the Riadys, Hillary's cattle futures, etc., can be made without also calling up Watergate and/or GOPAC.

SACRAMENTO -- Five Congressional Democrats have demanded the resignation of a top official in Gov. Jerry Brown's administration for comments the official allegedly made about the future of the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. The controversy surrounds Jerry Meral, deputy director of the state Natural Resources Agency, who allegedly told officials that Brown's water plan was never about saving the delta and that in fact the delta could not be saved. That contradicts statements made by Brown who has said his plan would include measures to restore the delta , the confluence of the two rivers and the San Francisco Bay, which serves as the primary source of drinking water for most of the state's residents.

Republican candidates continued to emerge Thursday for the Orange County congressional seat held by Rep. Christopher Cox, nominated by President Bush to chair the Securities and Exchange Commission. If the Senate confirms Cox (R-Newport Beach), a special election is likely later this year, perhaps consolidated with a possible statewide election in November, or early next year.
