One of the bitterest Congressional races in the country descended into physical confrontation at Pierce College in Woodland Hills, California Thursday night.
Rep. Brad Sherman and Rep. Howard Berman — each fighting for his political life in a redrawn Los Angeles-area district — face each other in November in California’s open primary system.
Sherman is seen shouting at Berman in a video sent BuzzFeed by the Berman campaign.
“Don’t get in my face. Stay away from me,” Sherman, the larger man, yells, and then puts his arm around Berman’s shoulders.
The politicians were then separated by a deputy from Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
