Attorney Tong Soo Chung, born in Korea and educated at Ivy League universities, is a registered Democrat in Los Angeles. Why, then, does he plan to contribute money to Republican Sang R. Korman, a political unknown seeking the GOP congressional nomination in a district miles away from Chung's? "His message for the Korean-American community is that it is time to get involved," Chung said of Korman, who is also an immigrant.

Awash in the check-overdraft scandal and perceived as inept and out of touch, the House of Representatives has hit new lows in public esteem. Yet Republicans Jim Salomon and Sang Korman--the political equivalent of Eveready rabbits--keep running for Congress like their lives depended on it. The two Calabasas businessmen, neither of whom has held elective office nor been involved in civic affairs in their community, are each on the ballot for a third consecutive time.

Overview The Republican primary in the overwhelmingly Republican district is a rematch of the 1988 primary in which Calabasas developer Sang Korman challenged incumbent Elton Gallegly. In that election, Korman received just 14% of the vote despite spending almost twice as much as Gallegly. This time, Gallegly has raised more money and is expected to retain his seat.

In an unusual rebuke, the president of California's largest conservative Republican organization has withdrawn an endorsement of GOP congressional candidate Sang Korman.

Republican challenger Sang Korman has yet to declare his candidacy in a district that has yet to be drawn, but Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley) has already come out swinging.

Just keep those jokes about being a three-time loser to yourself. Sang Korman says the third time will definitely be the charm. Korman, a developer and businessman who spent nearly $500,000 of his own money in two failed attempts to unseat Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley), is stepping up to the political plate for a third swing at the veteran congressman. He plans to run again next year in the Republican primary election for the 21st Congressional District.

Former Rep. Bobbi Fiedler (R-Northridge) has endorsed her successor, Rep. Elton Gallegly (R-Simi Valley), for reelection in the 21st Congressional District. Fiedler did not seek a fourth term in 1986 when she unsuccessfully ran for the GOP nomination for a U. S. Senate seat. "Elton Gallegly has done an outstanding job," Fiedler said in a prepared statement released by Gallegly's campaign Tuesday. "I wholeheartedly endorse his reelection efforts and will be doing whatever I can to support him."
