One thing became clear as Tuesday ended the filing period for the special election to replace state Sen. William Campbell: Four candidates in the race have a common target. He is the fifth candidate--Assemblyman Frank Hill (R-Whittier). Campbell (R-Hacienda Heights) abruptly left office earlier this month after 20 years of elective office to become president of the California Manufacturers Assn. Gov. George Deukmejian set a special Feb. 6 primary to replace him.

Capping a bitter and expensive campaign, Assemblyman Frank Hill (R-Whittier) appeared headed for victory Tuesday in a special election for a state Senate seat in one of California's most Republican districts. Hill held a 3-to-1 lead over his Democratic opponent in early returns from more than 20,000 absentee ballots. The four-term legislator was seeking to replace state Sen. William Campbell (R-Hacienda Heights), who resigned in December after serving more than 20 years in the Legislature.

Assemblyman Charles M. Calderon (D-Whittier) paid a price for challenging Speaker Willie Brown's leadership two years ago--Brown removed Calderon as majority whip, reduced the size of his staff, stripped him of his committee posts, and consigned him to a cramped office. But Brown apparently didn't interrupt Calderon's political advancement. In one of three special legislative elections in Southern California on Tuesday, Calderon is the heavy favorite to win a state Senate seat.

It has been a little more than three months since Gov. George Deukmejian scheduled a special election to replace veteran state Sen. William Campbell (R-Hacienda Heights) and set off a vicious primary battle in which the campaigns of eight candidates combined to spend about $2 million.

No less a political potentate than former Governor and current state Democractic Party Chairman Edmund G. (Jerry) Brown Jr. came to Leisure World Wednesday night on behalf of Janice Graham, the party's candidate for the seat vacated by former state Sen. William Campbell. In urging the crowd of 350 to support Graham, Brown compared her candidacy in the heavily Republican 31st District to the movements for democracy in Eastern Europe. "Get Jan Graham elected," he said.
