Television commentator Bruce Herschensohn collected more Valley votes than the combined totals of Los Angeles County Supervisor Mike Antonovich, Rep. Bobbi Fiedler of Northridge and state Sen. Ed Davis of Valencia. (The very conservative Herschensohn, however, lost statewide to Rep. Ed Zschau of Los Altos, who will meet Democratic U.S. Sen. Alan Cranston in the November election.)
Zschau, from Northern California's Silicon Valley, finished second to Herschensohn of Santa Ana in most of the Valley. One notable exception was the very conservative northwest Valley, where Fiedler finished second. Zschau, however, still finished ahead of Antonovich and Davis there.
Neither Davis nor any of his campaign staff could be reached for comment. Relations between Fiedler and Davis have been cool since Davis early this year accused Fiedler of offering to pay off his campaign debt to get him to drop out of the race. Fiedler was subsequently indicted, but the case was dismissed.
