ENCINO, Calif. -- Rep. Brad Sherman will represent California's San Fernando Valley in the House after defeating Rep. Howard Berman Tuesday night in one of the costliest and hardest-fought congressional races in the nation.

Berman, who was backed by the entertainment industry, conceded the House race Wednesday morning after one-third of the precincts reporting showed him trailing nearly 20 points.
