With Vice President George Bush faring well in Southern California, Republican campaign advisers are pouring in aid to challengers here who they think now have a chance to upset incumbent Democratic congressmen. The targets are Reps. George E. Brown Jr. (D-Colton), Matthew G. Martinez (D-Monterey Park) and Jim Bates (D-San Diego), who for various reasons have been added to the GOP's list of possible victims on Tuesday.

Most incumbent members of Congress from California won reelection Tuesday, but longtime Rep. Robert J. Lagomarsino (R-Ventura) was locked in a close race with state Sen. Gary K. Hart (D-Santa Barbara) in one of the most contested House campaigns in the country. Regardless of the outcome of the Lagomarsino-Hart race, Democrats will hold a wide edge in the California House delegation that greets new President George Bush in January. Coming into the election, the Democrats had a 27-18 edge.

Rep. George E. Brown Jr. said Tuesday that he will introduce an amendment aimed at killing the $1-billion Santa Ana River flood control project in this session of Congress because design plans for a controversial San Bernardino portion of the project are not final.

Political bitterness spawned by last year's attempt by Orange County Republicans to sweep Democratic congressmen out of office has resurfaced in Washington and is threatening the proposed $1.3-billion Santa Ana River flood control project, backers of the plan said Thursday. The project's supporters said they are worried about the objections raised this week by Rep. George Brown (D-Colton) to inclusion of the flood control project in a bill approved Wednesday by the House Public Works Committee.

The most notable characteristic of California's 45-member delegation to the U.S. House of Representatives is its stability, a result of gerrymandered House district lines drawn in the last 20 years. With so many House members running from safe seats, there has been very little turn-over in the delegation. Among the 45 delegation members, only three are not seeking reelection this year.

The proposed $1-billion Santa Ana River flood-control project remained in a massive House bill Wednesday after California Rep. George E. Brown Jr. (D-Riverside) withdrew a hotly contested amendment to knock it out. The legislation, authorizing nearly 400 water projects costing an estimated $20 billion, is expected to win House approval today despite the threat of a presidential veto on grounds it is too costly.

The Republicans won the White House, but it wasn't their year in California's congressional districts. Not only did Republicans fail to cut into the Democrats' 27-18 edge in the California delegation, the political survival of a loyal Reagan Administration lieutenant, Rep. Robert J. Lagomarsino (R-Ventura), remained in doubt Wednesday because of uncounted absentee ballots. Lagomarsino led State Sen. Gary K. Hart (D-Santa Barbara) by 2,276 votes in unofficial results.

J.T. (Eager) Beaver is an obscure 83-year-old Republican who, in keeping with his name, campaigned for Congress last fall on his proposal to dam San Francisco Bay. With his entire campaign costing $3,500, which he paid himself, Beaver hardly posed a threat to the reelection of Rep. Fortney H. (Pete) Stark (D-Oakland). Yet Stark, who raked in three-fourths of his campaign cash from special-interest political action committees, spent an overwhelming $246,000 to bury Beaver with 70% of the vote.
