In one of the nastier political races this season, a Republican candidate for the Assembly has come under fire by Democrats and Asian American leaders for operating a campaign Web site they say is racist. Republican and former state Assemblyman Gerald Felando is vying for the 53rd Assembly District seat in the South Bay, currently held by Democrat George Nakano.

Two upset victories in the state Assembly have turned the tables on South Bay Republicans, shifting what once was a GOP stronghold to a Democratic one. Political newcomer Debra L. Bowen swept to a stunning landslide victory over Republican Brad Parton, ending a brutal battle for the new 53rd Assembly District that hugs the coast from Venice to the edge of the Palos Verdes Peninsula. Democrat Bowen rolled up a 22,731-vote victory margin, capturing 54.6% of the vote to Parton's 40.7%.

To the cheers and applause of his colleagues, Assemblyman Gerald N. Felando (R-San Pedro) on Thursday won his two-year fight to ban smoking on the floor of the Assembly. On a voice vote, the Assembly overwhelmingly approved the proposal after Felando urged lawmakers to take a step to improve their own health. The legislator's appeal was tinged with emotion because Felando, 54, last month disclosed that he is being treated for a blood-related cancer.

Reacting to allegations that the tobacco industry was secretly behind his bill, a lawmaker Thursday dropped a controversial provision that would have prevented cities and counties from imposing their own anti-smoking restrictions. For good measure, an Assembly committee approved a separate measure prohibiting cigarette and chewing tobacco firms from distributing free samples on street corners and public fairgrounds.
