Nearly a dozen politicians--including several City Council members and a state legislator--have begun assessing their chances of unseating or succeeding Mayor Tom Bradley in two years, according to interviews conducted during the last three weeks.

Southern Pacific Transportation Co. has confirmed that it is negotiating to sell the former railroad right-of-way that runs for 14 blocks along Normandie Avenue in the Harbor Gateway area. A spokesman for the San Francisco-based company, Gerald Pera, said the discussions began "very recently" and it is "much too early" to name the potential buyer or disclose a possible sale price. The narrow strip of land runs from Torrance Avenue to 223rd Street and has been vacant since it was discontinued as a train route in 1982.

Pete Wilson, with voters currently choosing up sides based on the candidates' party and sex, according to the Los Angeles Times Poll. A statewide survey of 1,729 registered voters found Feinstein supported by 40% and Wilson by 37%, a statistical tie given a margin of error of three percentage points in either direction.
