The California Democratic Party declined this weekend to endorse Mrs. Feinstein, delivering a huge boost to state Senate leader Kevin de Leon, her chief challenger who's running to her left. But neither Democrat will receive the state party endorsement because they failed to reach the 60 percent threshold.
As Bernie Sanders dominated the California political landscape in 2016, Hillary Clinton was propped up by the Democratic Party, who even conspired against the Vermont socialist, but now the state will adjust and Senator Dianne Feinstein may be the first casualty. Kamala Harris and U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, urged unity ahead of the midterm elections. De Leon has billed himself has a more progressive politician than Feinstein offering a fresh outlook to the 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. They reminded more than 3,000 activists gathered this weekend that President Donald Trump is their common enemy. Mr.de León questioned, among other things, remarks Ms. Feinstein had made that were interpreted by many Democratic activists here as sympathetic to Mr. Trump, and suggested she was too conventional in taking on the White House. A poll by the Public Policy Institute of California this month found her leading Mr.de León by a margin of 46 percent to 17 percent. They were annoyed that she didn't take a harder line on former FBI Director James Comey's abrupt termination a year ago, or that she is much more of an ally of the intelligence community than of Silicon Valley on the encryption question.
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 illegal immigrants brought to the U.S.as children.
