SAN DIEGO - The military planes and helicopters that roar on training runs over this city's crystalline bay are a reminder of how deeply woven the armed forces are into the fabric of freshman Rep. Scott Peters' congressional district. The question of whether the United States should intervene in Syria looms large here. Dotted with seven bases for the Navy, Marines and U.S. Coast Guard, the district is home to voters who have a profound understanding of the need for military force, a deep pride in their region's role in keeping the nation safe - and an intimate awareness of the toll of war. It also looms large for Peters, a Democratic former city councilman who eked out a victory last November in an election in which Syria was an afterthought, if that.

Campaign contributions are flowing briskly to candidates in some of California's hottest congressional races, including two of the most vocal proponents of getting money out of politics. Incumbents in races in the Sacramento area, Central Valley, Bay Area and Riverside and Ventura counties each have raised more than $1 million to fend off vigorous challengers. And in San Diego County, freshman Democratic Rep. Scott Peters and his main opponent, Republican Carl DeMaio, were nearly neck and neck, with Peters taking in nearly $1.8 million to DeMaio's almost $1.5 million.

SAN DIEGO - Ten days after the last vote was cast, Rep. Brian Bilbray (R-Carlsbad) conceded defeat Friday to Democratic challenger Scott Peters in the high-spending, mudslinging contest in the 52nd District. Mail and provisional ballots were still being counted when Bilbray issued his concession, but both sides had concluded that the result was no longer in doubt. Peters, 54, an environmental lawyer and former San Diego City Council member, held a 50.92%-to-49.08% edge over Bilbray, 61, who has served six terms in Congress.

Some of them won't even make it past the June 3 primary election, but leading Republican candidates in hot congressional races in California are getting hammered over their party's budget proposals. The House Democrats' campaign arm has launched a series of automated phone calls to likely voters in several congressional districts, taking GOP candidates to task for Congressional Republicans' "radical" budget as they prepare to vote this week. The calls represent the second phase of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee's "Battleground: Middle Class" campaign.  Democrats launched the campaign last week with a series of online ads. The committee declined to say how much it is spending on the campaign.

Dianne Feinstein of California on Sunday joined a growing list of Democrats calling on San Diego Mayor Bob Filner to resign due to allegations that he has sexually harassed women, intensifying the pressure on him to step down.

SAN DIEGO - The new look of congressional politics in California is playing out in a district that covers most of San Diego and the suburbs of Poway and Coronado - not normally a region considered a political trend-setter. The 52nd Congressional District race, pitting incumbent Republican Brian Bilbray and Democrat Scott Peters, is competitive, high-spending, and, as a notable San Diegan, the late singer/songwriter Jim Croce, once intoned in a different context, "meaner than a junkyard dog. " The race is competitive because California voters in 2010 stripped the Legislature of the power to draw congressional district lines and gave it to a bipartisan commission.
