Since the surprise announcement that longtime Los Angeles democrat Henry Waxman would retire from Congress after this year, local candidates have been lining up for a shot at the previously untouchable 33rd congressional district seat.

There’s still one month left for prospective candidates to file for the state’s June primary. But in the early running, two Democrats have emerged as the likely favorites: State Senator Ted Lieu (D-Torrance) and former Los Angeles City Controller (and mayoral candidate) Wendy Greuel.

They are both vying for a congressional district anchored on the Palos Verdes peninsula, which includes the beach-side communities of Santa Monica and Malibu, Beverly Hills, and surrounding parts of Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley.

On Which Way, LA?, Warren spoke to Lieu about how his experience in state government will translate to the Congress. Lieu currently represents the 28th state senate district. Prior to being elected to the state senate, he was a member of the California state assembly from 2005-2011.
