Freshman Rep. Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-Los Angeles) is considered a heavy favorite to recapture the 33rd Congressional District seat she won two years ago. Roybal faces only one challenger in the primary, a political newcomer making his first bid for elective office, and there are no Republican candidates. Roybal-Allard, 52, succeeded her father, Edward R. Roybal, who represented the 33rd District for nearly 30 years before his retirement in 1992.

Lucille Roybal Allard, the 45-year-old daughter of longtime Rep. Edward R. Roybal, said she has "probably been referred to as the congressman's daughter more in recent times than when I was a kid."
