The hotly contested and expensive San Fernando Valley race between incumbent Democratic Reps. Howard Bermanand Brad Sherman has locals so torn over whom to vote for that one resident called the whole situation “a shame.”
Redistricting has forced the two popular congressmen to compete in a new district that incorporates pieces of their existing districts, and the pair have attracted millions of dollars in support of their candidacies.
The two veterans have worked to distinguish themselves from one another since both men have spent much of their adult lives in elected office and hold similar views on many national and world issues.
That left residents contemplative at the polls Tuesday. Many said they liked both candidates and had to make a tough choice.
