California Democrats Refuse to Endorse Dianne Feinstein for Re-Election

"The long-time California Democratic senator failed to secure her own party's endorsement, coming in almost 20 percentage points behind her primary challenger among delegate votes at the state party's annual convention in San Diego over the weekend". But, the California Democratic Party was not in favor of making her as a candidate to fight against the Republicans this time. He believes its an indication of how far left the party is swinging. This means that both Feinstein and Kevin will get the approval from the party. Her skeptical view of single-payer health care, anti-marijuana stance, and her votes in favor of some President Donald Trump's nominations to key administration jobs rankled activists at the core of the state's Democratic Party. Carrick says, "She (still) has a big lead in all the polls and a big financial advantage".

California runs on a system that allows the top two vote-getters to become eligible for the general election with no regard to the party represented.

ABC7 News did not receive a response to our request for comments from Senator Feinstein or her office. They were annoyed that she didn't take a harder line on former FBI Director James Comey's abrupt termination previous year, or that she is much more of an ally of the intelligence community than of Silicon Valley on the encryption question.

Her political strategist, Bill Carrick, said the campaign was "in good shape". It took Feinstein a while before she made a decision to vote against a spending bill last December and last January in order to show her protest over the Trump administration's immigration policy. Former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who is courting more moderate and even conservative voters, won 9 percent.

Brandi Glanville asks pointed question of Omarosa on 'Celebrity Big Brother'
Fellow TV personality Ross Mathews asked Omarosa if the first lady was nice, and Omarosa replied: 'She's unbelievable '. Matthews had asked for reassurance about the state of the county, but Manigault Newman certainly didn't give him any.

The convention also highlighted the tensions between the progressives in the party and the establishment.

The longtime senator focused on her specific legislative record, including on gun control and sexual assault, saying she's a long fighter for Democratic values with the clout to get things done. As a senior member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, she promised she would never back funding for a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.

But de Leon, who authored "sanctuary state" legislation to limit California authorities from cooperating with federal immigration officials, has argued that Feinstein historically failed to stand up for young immigrants brought to the USA illegally as children.

"She shows up now that she's being challenged", said Ana Gonzalez of San Bernardino County.
