Its not just Republicans who lack a serious candidate who were unhappy to see Sen. Dianne Feinstein announce this week that she would be seeking a sixth term. The California Left has been hoping forever that Feinstein would retire so a true progressive might replace her.
Since thats not happening, heres their Plan B: state Senate Pro Tem Kevin de León, the Los Angeles Democrat, challenges her.
But their challenge is huge: How do you defeat an incumbent senator with near-universal name recognition, a place in history as Californias first female senator, a net worth of $94 million and the party establishment tripping over themselves to say nice things about her?
To many progressives, DiFi is, in no particular order, a corporatist, Iraq war-mongering, single-payer-health-care-dubious, not-anti-Trump-enough, pro-Patriot Act, anti-Edward Snowden one-percenter. For starters. And she has got to go.
This is a movement moment. Its not enough to resist, said Bill Honigman, the California state director for the national Progressive Democrats of America. You need to offer a replacement for things that generally need to be replaced.
And it aint going to be a Republican.
Given the anemia of the California GOP, it will be difficult to beat Feinstein by doing anything but running to her political left which de León would be best positioned to do.
So, according to progressive leaders, here is the road map for how to beat DiFi:
Keep saying shes soft on Trump.
Keep asking, Wheres DiFi?
Keep talking about single-payer Medicare-for-all.
Keep hoping the revolution will be nationalized.
Keep focusing on your voters.

Love to see them democrats shooting themselves in the foot!
Go for it ‘progressives’!!
Primary this stupid witch!!!
Its not just Republicans who lack a serious candidate...
Who says Republicans are unhappy to see Dianne Feinstein running again?
God has blessed us Trump supporters with really stupid enemies.
Encourage 6 or 7 Dhimmicraps to run. If the GOP won’t put up a serious candidate, try to get the AIP to find one.
I nominate Harvey Weinstein to run for her Senate seat, he has already proved himself as a worth demonrat.
DiFi is afraid to retire lest she be prosecuted a half dozen ways
Cali voters are some of the stupidest people in the country rivaling idiots walking a NYC street.
What happened to secession? Why do they care who the senator is?
These leftists can’t get their story straight!
That state that doesnt want federal help until they do
