There's no bigger prize in this election than control of Congress -- and Republicans think they're well within striking distance of taking over the House. Most California Congressional incumbents seem pretty safe, but three seem to have real battles on their hands. Those three are: Republican Dan Lungren in the Third Congressional District near Sacramento; and Democrats Jerry McNerney in a district east of Oakland, and Loretta Sanchez from Orange County. We talk with Ben Adler, Capitol Public Radio reporter; Lisa Vorderbrueggen, political reporter and columnist with the Contra Costa Times; and Louis DeSipio, chair of the Chicano/Latino Studies Department at UC Irvine.
