Berman, Sherman Headed For Runoff in Westside-Valley Congressional Race
Let's just call it the upper Westside, the redrawn 30th congressional district that pitted two Democratic incumbents against each other in a blood feud that could only lead to another face off in November.
Yeah, with less than 20 percent of the precincts at least "partially" reporting their results, it already appears clear (we'll go out on a limb here):
Berman-Sherman II is gonna happen:
Overnight Brad Sherman had 40 percent of the vote and Howard L. Berman had about 33 percent.
With none of the other candidates even close -- surprise -- the two who have been duking it out this spring will have to save some energy for fall because they'll face off again come November.
It was riveting wondering just how the 1-2 rank would turnout for this one. Now we'll have to wait to find out which boring Democrat will continue to represent this zone of affluenza.
