In the dry foothills above Stanford University, a complex of wood-shingled offices set amid pines and green lawns is the center, symbolically and financially, of an unusual move by wealthy entrepreneurs to oust a fellow Republican from Congress on June 7. The campus-like complex, known as 3000 Sand Hill Road, is home to more venture capitalists than anywhere else in Northern California.

There was no drama for U.S. Sen. Pete Wilson (R-Calif.) and his top Democratic challenger, Lt. Gov. Leo T. McCarthy, but California GOP voters Tuesday ousted first-term Rep. Ernest Konnyu (R-Saratoga) while also anointing two new Republicans who appear sure to be elected to Congress in the fall. Konnyu was defeated in his party primary by Tom Campbell, a 35-year-old Stanford University law professor and economist.

Senate President Pro Tem David A. Roberti said Tuesday that he may shelve a landmark workfare bill until next year because it could create new "latchkey children" who would receive inadequate child care. The Los Angeles Democrat also said he is reluctant to waive Senate rules so the Assembly-approved measure can be heard in committee immediately. He said he dislikes the idea of rushing through such a major bill during the final two weeks of the legislative session.

The California Assembly agreed last week to pay nearly $50,000 to settle a staff member's year-old complaint of sexual harassment against a Bay Area legislator. Assemblywoman Rebecca Cohn (D-Saratoga) said the complaint filed against her by former press secretary Ericka Weaver-Taylor was "without merit" and that the settlement -- made public Friday -- was "ridiculous." "I don't think she should be getting anything," said Cohn. "But I don't have any control over Assembly benefits."

Men--certainly men running for office--have always had a network to help them out. Be it old boys, or new boys, friends know friends who know friends who write checks.

Democrats already hold a 27-18 edge in the House delegation from California, but Republican voters knocked off Rep. Ernest Konnyu of Saratoga on Tuesday in a vituperative battle in the suburbs south of San Francisco.

Longtime Rep. Robert J. Lagomarsino (R-Ventura) and every other incumbent member of Congress from California were reelected Tuesday, a turn that left the state's delegation split 27 to 18 in favor of the Democrats. Lagomarsino has spent the past year trying to repel a challenge by state Sen. Gary K. Hart (D-Santa Barbara). The race, in a district on the coast north and west of Los Angeles, was one of the most contested House campaigns in the country.

Despite the apparent lead in California of Vice President George Bush, the Republicans find themselves the party at most risk of losing ground in the state's Nov. 8 congressional elections. Close races are under way for two House seats that have been held by Republicans for many years. The longtime representative in the Santa Barbara-Ventura district where President Reagan has his ranch, Rep. Robert J. Lagomarsino, is locked in the battle of his political life.
