They may live in a trend-setting state where the latest is invariably the greatest, but California voters have displayed a stubborn allegiance to tried and tested members of Congress, reelecting incumbents at a rate that could discourage the heartiest of challengers. Since 1982, when the current boundaries for the state's 45 congressional districts were drawn, only one incumbent on the general election ballot--Jerry Patterson in Orange County--has been unseated.

Ever since he declared himself a conscientious objector during World War II, George Brown has demonstrated a knack for bucking the mood of the moment and doggedly going his own way. In 1965, he became one of the first members of Congress to raise a voice of protest against the Vietnam War. More recently, he opposed President Ronald Reagan's military buildup and praised Democratic presidential candidate Walter F. Mondale's proposal to reduce the federal deficit by raising taxes.

After turning over its economic development activities to a private firm, San Bernardino County now boasts that it was the state's top county in 1985 for attracting new manufacturing plants, up from near last the year before. During the year, the county attracted 23 new plants from as far away as Japan, Taiwan and Georgia. The plants, ranging from furniture factories to makers of exercise equipment, added 3,500 jobs initially and a capital investment of more than $100 million.

A highly decorated Navy fighter pilot was defeating Democratic Rep. Jim Bates of San Diego on Tuesday, and two other incumbents were locked in tight races with challengers who had sought to link them with the savings and loan debacle. Bates, pursuing a fifth term as the representative from the 44th District, was trailing GOP challenger Randall (Duke) Cunningham, a colorful campaigner who had described the congressman as "just another MiG" ready to be shot down.

It wasn't perfect, but it's as close as the New York Mets have come in their 42-year history. Rookie right-hander Jae Seo combined with two relievers on a one-hitter, and the Mets faced the minimum 27 batters to defeat the Florida Marlins, 5-0, Tuesday night at Miami. Seo (5-2) gave up a fifth-inning single to Juan Encarnacion before splitting a nail on the index finger of his pitching hand and being removed after 6 2/3 innings.
