Like frustrated big-game hunters, Republicans are again reloading their political guns to bag a trophy they've had in their cross-hairs for years: venerable Rep. George E. Brown Jr. In his increasingly conservative Inland Empire congressional district, Brown is an endangered species: an old-time liberal Democrat whose days in the House go back to the John F. Kennedy administration. No one in California's 52-member House delegation--half Democrat, half Republican--has served longer.

In a dramatic display of election-year political theater, the House plans today to attempt to override President Clinton's veto of a bill that would outlaw a controversial late-term abortion procedure. The effort to outlaw "partial-birth" abortions is not likely to succeed. House Speaker Newt Gingrich (R-Ga.) has acknowledged that the override drive is six votes short.

San Bernardino boasts year-round sunshine, but that's not why politicians from across the country are suddenly interested in the Inland Empire. With the GOP controlling the House of Representatives by a mere five votes, Democrats and Republicans alike are gauging the political climate of the 42nd Congressional District, where a special election will be held next month to fill the unexpired term of the late Democratic Rep. George E. Brown Jr.

It hurts to lose by a lot. It is gut-wrenching to lose by a little. Just ask Republican Susan Brooks, who has lost twice in her bid for the House of Representatives--in 1994 by fewer than a thousand votes, and this year by a lot more. On the morning after election day last week, she awoke to the news that she had failed in her second bid to unseat South Bay Rep. Jane Harman (D-Rolling Hills), this time by a margin of nine big points--18,829 votes.

California voters turned out two GOP incumbents and gave Orange County Republican Robert K. Dornan a jangling wake-up call in an election that threw control of the state's massive congressional delegation to the Democrats. The veteran Dornan, of Garden Grove, led Democratic challenger Loretta Sanchez by just 233 votes with 10,000 absentee ballots still uncounted. The result is bound to be contested.

Most incumbents in congressional races appeared to be leading their challengers in the early vote count Tuesday night, as both Democrats and Republicans hoped to break the 26-26 tie and gain the edge in California's delegation to Washington. A longtime member of Congress from each party--Democrat George E. Brown Jr. of San Bernardino, the dean of the state's delegation, and Orange County Republican Robert K.

With little more than a week to go before the election, at least 10 California congressional districts are up for grabs--a collection of hotly contested races that is the largest in the nation and that may well leave partisan control of the House of Representatives in the hands of the state's voters. The close races include at least three in Los Angeles County and one each in San Bernardino, Orange County and the Santa Barbara area.
