The New York Post: Feinstein fails to win endorsement of California Democrats

The California Democratic Party snubbed Sen. Dianne Feinstein on Sunday, failing to endorse the five-term incumbent who might be seen as too moderate for the deep blue state.

Feinstein won just 37% support of the 2,775 delegates gathered at the state convention in San Diego, according to results announced by the party.

Her chief liberal rival, state Senate President Kevin de León (D-Los Angeles), garnered 54% of the vote. While de León still fell short of the 60% needed for endorsement, he declared victory.

The challenger has positioned himself as a bigger opponent of President Donald Trump, compared to Feinstein.

“California Democrats are hungry for new leadership that will fight for California values from the front lines, not equivocate on the sidelines,” de León said.
