Skip to comments.California Democratic Party offers no endorsements in U.S. Senate or governor's races

The California Democratic Party decided not to endorse in the U.S. Senate contest on Saturday, an embarrassing rebuke of veteran Sen. Dianne Feinstein.
Feinstein, who has represented California in the Senate for a quarter-century, is facing an insurgent bid by a fellow Democrat, state Senate leader Kevin de León. He earned nearly 500 more votes than the senator, who was first elected in 1992.
De León has cultivated relationships with the partys delegates. He still faces a significant challenge in trying to topple Feinstein, who trounces De León in all public polling and fund-raising.
The party also did not endorse a Democrat for California governor, an expected outcome.
Votes cast by delegates at the partys annual convention Saturday splintered among the four top Democrats in the race: Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, state Treasurer John Chiang, former state schools chief Delaine Eastin and former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa.
A candidate had to capture 60% of the delegates votes to win the partys seal of approval, considered unlikely given the field of politicians in the race with deep ties to the state party.

Is there a Republican opponent who could beat the Dem candidate?
I think CA has an open primary system and the top two vote getters go forward to the general election, even if they are from the same party.
Why does it take two “authors” to write such a simplistic story? She did not get an endorsement so just go away you old rich bitch....Just go away!
Yes that’s true. It is quite possible the general election will be between two Democrats.
Here is the key point:
“A candidate had to capture 60% of the delegates votes to win the partys seal of approval, considered unlikely given the field of politicians in the race with deep ties to the state party.”
Neither got the needed amount.
Feinstein will still win in a walk.
California has a “top two” system, and usually, the top two are both Democrats. That’s how far gone California is.
I wonder if Diana is still loving all those Illegals now? It will soon only be Mexicans elected to statewide office.
DemocRAT DiFi will never admit just how rich she and her husband have become because she funneled millions of taxpayer dollars to herself and her husband. She was the head of the committee and she used her position to funnel the taxpayer dollars to herself and her husband. When accused of it, she lost her chairmanship, but was not removed from the committee.
La Raza on the march! Thanks Innovative.
The people on the Left know the Democrats are faking their progressivism and are just tools of moneyed elites from banking and business.
Bernie Sanders opened that wound.
Heck, Diane Feinstein is a Corporatist to the hilt, a John McCain female version.
She’ll have to scare people with stories about the “far right”, “gun lobby” and “haters” out to get her so people will vote for her.
Her big money backers will give her the propaganda budget to do it, you can count on that.
Just as the McCain’s have faked their conservatism, the Feinstein’s have faked their liberalism.
The average people are waking up to it and that’s fine with me.
We do have one Republucan in the race...but very few knkw her. Erin Cruz. A yound lady from the Central Valley area running boldly on the Trump agenda. So yeah, in California she has no chance. But at least a few of us have someone to vite for
IN BIZARRO WORLD
“We do have one Republican in the race...but very few know her. Erin Cruz. A yound lady from the Central Valley area running boldly on the Trump agenda. So yeah, in California she has no chance. But at least a few of us have someone to vote for”
ERIN CRUZ (R) — excellent. Thanks for the info.
I hope enough people will vote for her, to get her into the actual election after the primary.
There are a couple of no-name GOP guys, and then there is Caitlyn Jenner (the trans reality guy). Rumor has it that Jenner is discussing the idea of running on the GOP ticket. Personally, I would not care....he might actually be able to beat the Democrats, and the arrival in DC would help for entertainment value.
Oh no....not Bruce Gender.
Put it this way: The loathsome idiot Barbara Boxer was once thought to be vulnerable in the Tea Party wave of 2010, the biggest GOP romp in what, 70 years? She faced a serious, non-defective candidate in Carly Fiorina who didn’t give Californians any reason to vote against her...and she still lost by 10 points.
So, no, there is no hope for any Republican in California. Let’s also not forget that the reason they’re maybe looking to dump Difi is because, as crazy left as she is, is still not extreme enough for that communist state.
Feinstein is an incompetent liberal leftist. De Leon is a staunch Marxist ideologue besides being crazy.
America and California both lose if either are elected or reelected.
