Feinstein Not Liberal Enough for Californian Dems

Who thought we would see the day that Feinstein would anchor the right wing of her party.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The California Democratic Party snubbed U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein on Saturday by handing its official endorsement and a badly needed boost to state Sen. Kevin de Leon, her longshot Democratic challenger.

In backing de Leon, a majority of the party’s 360-member executive board ignored Feinstein’s calls to stay neutral in the race. Her allies had warned an endorsement would create an intraparty squabble that could detract from important down-ballot races.

De Leon has long been courting party activists and appealed to those seeking a fresh face and a more progressive senator to fight against President Donald Trump.

“Today’s vote is a clear-eyed rejection of politics as usual in Washington, D.C.,” de Leon said in a statement after the vote. “We have presented Californians with the first real alternative to the worn-out Washington playbook in a quarter-century.”

    Democrats are radical fringe crazy.

    Another unsupported claim…..

    When Feinstein is not liberal enough, that is loopy liberal territory.

  4. Le Roi du Nord

    Your opinion, I have mine, and ne’er the twain shall meet.

    Can’t help it if you want to be out there in never never land.   When you get to reality, let me know.

  6. Le Roi du Nord

    Again, you are entitled to your opinion , as I am to mine.  That doesn’t make you any more correct, just different.  I’m fine with my reality.

    Just curious, you are all anti-communist, -socialist, -anything left of Attila, so what are your feeling on trump kissing up to putin, and bad mouthing US law enforcement agencies?  If Obama did the same you would have been screaming TREASON all over town.  Why the silence now?
