I worked on her senate campaign in California in 1992. It is now 2018 and neither she nor the Democrat Party are what they used to be. Both deserve to be history, and this action takes both of them closer to their inevitable, and necessary, irrelevance. They’re both dinosaurs, and represent the out-of-touch malevolence that has done this country great damage in the last 20 years.
US Sen. Dianne Feinstein failed to win the official endorsement of the California Democratic Party as she seeks her fifth term in Washington, but her supporters say it won’t hurt her with a broader swath of voters.
Party activists were more eager to back her primary challenger, state Senate leader Kevin de Leon, who is crafting himself as a fresh face with stronger progressive credentials. However, he too failed to earn the 60 percent support he needed to win the endorsement.
That means neither candidate will get the party’s seal of approval or extra campaign cash leading into the June primary. The decision came from more than 3,000 activists gathered for the party’s annual convention this weekend, an event aimed at generating enthusiasm for the midterm elections.
None of the four Democrats running to succeed Jerry Brown as governor secured an endorsement either.
