California Democratic Party doesn't endorse Feinstein re-election bid

Convention Construction Could Hinder Tourism Sales

But neither Democrat will receive the state party endorsement because they failed to reach the 60 percent threshold.

Feinstein, the oldest member of the Senate at 84, is seeking a sixth term. "Kamala Harris and U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, urged unity ahead of the midterm elections", writes ABC News. On Saturday, de León said, "The days of Democrats biding our time, biting our tongue, and triangulating at the margins are over". For now, most polls among likely voters show Feinstein leading de Leon by double digits. Many of them don't like her pragmatism on law and order issues or her unwillingness to fight President Donald Trump on everything he tweets and everything he proposes. Nonetheless, Feinstein's poor showing is an embarrassment to her and a clear indication of her party's leftward lurch. Dianne Feinstein wields instant name recognition and a sizable campaign war chest in her push to extend a 25-year career on Capitol Hill this November - but a chunk of her own party appears to be through with her. 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.

Party leaders also implored activists to rally behind one candidate in U.S. House races with as many as seven Democratic hopefuls, warning a failure to unite could boost Republicans.

They should think carefully about whether Feinstein, who recently voted to kill debate on amending the federal governments warrantless spying under Section 702 and voted for continuing the unconstitutional practice, is the sort of Senator who will stand up for their rights. Kevin de Leon, her main primary challenger.

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.
