Last fall, U.S. Trade Representative Mickey Kantor tried his best to persuade Rep. Jane Harman (D-Marina del Rey) to support the North American Free Trade Agreement. And even though President Clinton called her as the vote approached, she never did. With the pact signed, sealed and delivered, it looks like they've let bygones be bygones. Last week, Kantor was stumping for Harman at a $500-a-plate fund-raiser in downtown Los Angeles.

Rep. Henry A. Waxman (D-Los Angeles) may be the closest thing to a sure bet this political season. The powerhouse Democrat faces no opponent in the Tuesday primary and is expected to coast by a nominal Republican challenge in November to capture a 12th term. But Waxman is hardly the only Westside Democrat whose reelection prospects look promising. Just one of the area's seven incumbents for state or national office faces a challenge in the primary--Assemblyman Kevin Murray (D-Los Angeles).

The same day U. S. Rep.
