With the general elections just days away, candidates are going for broke--pleading with supporters for that one last dollar, courting political action committees and, when all else fails, borrowing from friends and family. According to recent campaign disclosure statements filed with the Los Angeles County registrar-recorder's office, Assemblyman Bob Epple has raised more in the past 3 1/2 months than any other candidate running for state office in Southeast Los Angeles County.

Across the country, political pundits are predicting that incumbents will be defeated at every level of government Nov. 8. But in Central Los Angeles, analysts say, that will not be the case. In local districts, some of which are up to 88% Democratic, races are traditionally decided in the primaries, and Republicans seem to run for the exercise.

The 50th has been called the perfect Assembly district for a Latino. Carved out of Southeast Los Angeles County last year during reapportionment, it is made up of eight small to mid-size, overwhelmingly Latino cities.

Four Latino Democrats have jumped into the June 2 primary race: Pat Acosta, Virginia R. Belmontez, Martha M.

Tuesday's primary balloting in the 50th Assembly District encompasses all or part of nine cities and communities in southeast Los Angeles County, but it seems to boil down to just one of them: beleaguered South Gate. Only two candidates, both Democrats in their mid-30s, appear to have much of a chance of claiming the seat in the overwhelmingly Democratic, largely Latino district.

The way state Senate candidate John Ward figures it, even in the best of times he could not wage a dollar-for-dollar campaign against incumbent Sen. Robert G. Beverly, who has more than $400,000 socked away in his campaign account. And these are not the best of times. Recession-embattled campaign contributors are keeping a tight grip on their wallets at the same time dozens of candidates are clamoring for cash. "Times are tough," said Ward, a Lakewood furniture store owner.
