DIANNE DENIED: California Democrats REFUSE to Endorse Sen. Feinstein

Feinstein and challenger battle for coveted California Dems endorsement

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., speaks at the 2018 California Democrats State Convention Saturday, Feb. 24, 2018, in San Diego. But polls aside, her race against California State Senate leader Kevin de Leon has proven to be tougher than expected - not because de Leon is an especially gifted or charismatic politician with an ability to raise incredible sums of money from donors across the state (Feinstein holds a massive fundraising advantage with $10 million on hand compared to de Leon's $500,000).

Democrats are having their Tea Party moment, if that isn't unfair to the Tea Party. Supporters of Feinstein are still optimistic as they believe the party snub will not hurt the Senator when it comes to the broader base of voters that will ultimately decide the election. Support from 60 percent of the delegates was needed to secure the party's official endorsement.

The June 5 primary election will allow the top two vote-getters to advance to the general election in November. He called it "an astounding rejection of politics as usual" and a boost to his campaign's momentum.

The vote came after Mr.de León, who has been running an insurgent campaign, delivered a blistering speech that reflects deep divisions among Democrats here - and across the nation - about how to respond to President Trump.

If we can continue to play like this, we can win games and it means that Slimani can give us something more at the end of the season.

"The days of Democrats biding our time, biting our tongue, and triangulating at the margins are over", he said.

Feinstein was first elected to the U.S. Senate in a special election in 1992, and she has since been re-elected to four full consecutive terms. They were annoyed that she didn't take a harder line on former FBI Director James Comey's abrupt termination past year, or that she is much more of an ally of the intelligence community than of Silicon Valley on the encryption question.

De Leon argues that Feinstein, who is considered to be the establishment pick, has grown out of touch with the more progressive California that has developed since she began her political career. "California Democrats are hungry for new leadership that will fight for California values from the front lines, not equivocate on the sidelines".
