In an effort to keep Republican moderates in the fold, the House GOP leadership has derailed a primary election challenge to Rep. Steve Horn, a bookish Long Beach lawmaker whose voting record has riled conservatives. Rick Dykema, an aide to Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Huntington Beach), had openly courted support among California conservatives since late last year. But top GOP leaders persuaded Dykema to drop his plan.

Steve Horn, a moderate Republican political scientist who spent a decade in Congress representing Long Beach and surrounding areas after serving as president of Cal State Long Beach for nearly 20 years, has died. He was 79. Horn died Thursday at his Long Beach home from complications of Alzheimer's disease, said his son, Steve Horn Jr. On Capitol Hill, Horn was regarded as a maverick known for his bipartisanship during five terms in Congress from 1993 to 2003. Although he voted to impeach President Clinton, Horn often broke ranks with his party, including voting against oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge.

Stretching from the bustling ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles through the middle- and working-class suburbs of Lakewood, Paramount, Bellflower and Downey, the 38th Congressional District is one that Democrats long thought should be theirs. Democrats had expected to take the newly drawn seat in 1992, when they held a nearly 10-point registration edge over Republicans.

Call it Florida West. While the world focuses on the Sunshine State to learn whether George W. Bush or Al Gore will occupy the White House, two candidates from Long Beach are waiting out ballot counts closer to home. Republican U.S. Rep. Steve Horn was clinging to a narrow lead this week in the strongly Democratic 38th Congressional District, updated Los Angeles County election results showed.

In the next seven weeks, a Republican university professor who worked for President Nixon and a Democratic lawyer who has spent six years on the Long Beach City Council will wage what is expected to be one of the state's toughest congressional campaigns. Both Cal State Long Beach political science professor Steve Horn and Councilman Evan Anderson Braude are considered moderates.

Along tree-shaded Abbeyfield Street in Long Beach, the bucolic mood is broken only by a bipartisan glare that accompanies the mention of almost every politician. Seated in his living room as dusk falls, David Odom, a 31-year-old engineer who voted mostly Democratic in 1994, scolds lawmakers twice his age for "behaving like kids."

The South Bay and Long Beach communities that encompass the 36th and 38th congressional districts and the 53rd Assembly District share characteristics that have made for closely fought races this year. Voter registration splits fairly evenly between Democrats and Republicans, but if previous elections are a guide, voters will be fickle. Local economic and environmental issues loomed large in past elections. Severe dislocations in the aerospace industry rippled pain and anxiety across this area.

The date that looms most urgently for Gerrie Schipske, the Democrat who is trying to unseat Rep. Steve Horn (R-Long Beach) is not Nov. 7, the day of the general election. It's June 30. That's the close of the current campaign finance reporting period, and Schipske strategists figure that the Long Beach nurse practitioner and attorney needs to reach mid-race fund-raising goals by then to demonstrate her candidacy's viability to national Democratic leaders.

It was a classic case of that was then, this is now--Washington style. As the cameras zoomed in on Bill Clinton at a recent White House rally touting gun-control legislation, Brian P. Bilbray, a Republican congressman from San Diego, stood conspicuously alongside the president he had voted to impeach. What's more, Rep. James E. Rogan (R-Glendale), a national hero of conservatives and the No. 1 target of Democrats for his role as an impeachment prosecutor, also was at the ceremony.
