GOP Looks for Upset in Race for Calif. House Seat

Sunday, 10 Jul 2011 01:22 PM

 

TORRANCE, Calif. (AP) — Coastal California is Democratic turf, where the party often rolls up landslide victories for its candidates.

But this is a different year in the 36th Congressional District, which runs from the famous Venice boardwalk through the beaches south of Los Angeles International Airport.

In a season of turbulent politics, a little-noticed runoff election Tuesday for the House seat vacated by former Democratic Rep. Jane Harman has become unusually competitive.

Supporters for the Democratic candidate, Los Angeles City Councilwoman Janice Hahn, are jittery, while Republicans see a potential upset in the making for businessman Craig Huey, who owns marketing and advertising companies and has largely bankrolled his campaign with at least $795,000 in personal funds.
