Voters in California's 33rd congressional district head will decide Tuesday which of an enormous field of 18 contenders will succeed retiring Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA) after 40 years in the House. Poll data is scarce, but all signs point to a close race, with a handful of candidates bunched near the top and the rest hoping for a lucky break. Turnout is expected to be low, making it harder to predict what happens when Hollywood goes to vote.
