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.
