It was 1:30 a.m. on primary election night and Sherry Bebitch Jeffe had gone more than two hours without checking for phone calls from news reporters. Dialing her answering machine, Jeffe, a Claremont Graduate School political scientist, was overwhelmed by what she found: 18 messages. Rather than wait for morning, however, the exhausted academician, who had been on the air all evening as a KCAL-TV election analyst, began ringing back those who might still be on deadline.

Re "Latino-Jewish Festival a Push for Unity," Sept. 24. As Joe Cerrell said, "There are always people who hold a grudge." You bet! And I'm one of them. In 50 years of voting, no campaign rhetoric or activity ever made me as angry or disgusted as that of Richard Alarcon during the primary battle for his state Senate seat. I am not Jewish and did not perceive his tactics at that time as being anti-Semitic, just divisive, as in "us (Latinos) versus them (every one else)." Now we are supposed to believe he experienced an epiphany while on a trip to Israel!

"I think it reflects people's view that he has done an outstanding job and that he will be reelected." So far, Hahn is the only candidate who has officially signaled his intention to run.
