California Democrats approve of Feinstein challenger

Could California democratic party’s endorsement of Kevin de Leon, the incumbent, Diane Feinstein is a sign the party is moving to the left? William Lajeunesse reports from Los Angeles.

The California Democratic party is in favour of dropout as the next U.S. senator, a former college, Dissen sen Dianne Feinstein, the woman who represented the party in Washington in the last 26 years, and who is also the former mayor of San Francisco.

It is another sign, analysts say, that the Democratic party leaders to abandon the moderate, centrist, to cast a sober candidate in favor of the flame, resistance fighters battle President Trump are on the agenda.

“We Californians are presented with the first real alternative to the worn-out Washington playbook in a quarter of a century,” said candidate Kevin de León in a statement Saturday, shortly after he received the party’s support.

The action means de Leon, hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign money, party, volunteer, paid advertisements and publicity, Organisation of support and the party will get the support of the state voters guide for the November election.

“I think we need a younger, progressive person out there,” Amador County Democratic Central Committee member, Lynne Standard-Nightengale told the Los Angeles Times. “The democratic party in California has shifted to the left, and he embodies these values.”

De Leon, who flunked out of the University of California, Santa Barbara, is a champion of progressive causes, a torch-bearer for hard-left political activists. He is the author of the national Shrine of the bill, is conducive to the free medical care for all and free tuition fees. He wants to dismantle Immigration and Customs Enforcement, and accuse President Trump. The confirmation reflects the increasing strength of the state, the party of the liberal core, according to Trump’s choice and the populist support for Bernie Sanders.

Feinstein, however, is considered to be by government officials, to moderate, to slow, to a pragmatic and cross-party. The endorsement is a shame for Feinstein, who is running for a fifth full term, and the ranking is currently the leader on the Senate Judiciary Committee as it heads into confirmation hearings for Supreme Court nomineee Brett Kavanaugh.

“Yes, it hurt Feinstein, in a way,” said University of Virginia political analyst Larry Sabato. “If it helps her, it will be but, since their position as a moderate. It could, in fact, a lot of Republican votes to win in November, especially in light of the alternative.”

De León, the former state President of the Senate, 65 percent of the votes from the state of the party of the 333 member of the executive board is received. Feinstein received only 7 percent of the vote, although she has moved politically to the left, favoring the legalization of marijuana and the neglect of their long-standing support for the death penalty.

What does it mean for the November elections? Not a lot of.

Feinstein won the primary, the June, winning every province, 70 percent of the Democratic votes and 44 percent of the total votes. De Leon finished with 12 percent in a field of 32 candidates. But in the context of the state’s top-two primary system, only Feinstein and de Leon will appear on the November ballot. In April, Feinstein had $10 million in campaign cash on hand, compared to less than $700,000 for de Leon.

The Board vote reflected a generational battle between the Democrats, the ageing of the party led, the 80-year-old Gov. Jerry Brown, the 78-year-old Nancy Pelosi, and Feinstein, 85.

On deck, the former San Francisco mayor Gavin Newsom, 50, and U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris, 53, to bite into the Apple, before opportunities pass by.

The new left is encouraged, impatient and excited.

“For the rest of us in the country, Feinstein, a liberal seems to be-democratic,” Sabato said. “But for those on the left side of the Democratic party in California, as a moderate who compromises too much with Republicans, or with Donald Trump.”
