LOS ANGELES -- Dianne Feinstein has been the senior United States senator from California for the last quarter-century. She is the first and only woman to have chaired the Senate Rules Committee and the Select Committee on Intelligence. Before joining the Senate, she was the first female mayor of San Francisco; before that, she was the first female president of the city's Board of Supervisors. In 1994, Feinstein authored the federal assault weapons ban; during President Obama's first term, she led a groundbreaking investigation into the C.I.A.'s controversial post-9/11 interrogation program. And yet on Saturday night California Democrats gathered at the San Diego Convention Center and voted not to endorse Feinstein for a sixth term, making her the first incumbent senator in decades to compete in a Golden State primary without the official backing of her party.

Instead, Democratic delegates threw most of their support -- 54 percent versus Feinstein's 37 -- to challenger Kevin de León, a Los Angeles politician 33 years her junior with precisely none of her experience on the national stage

Out of curiosity, M8, how many times did you vote for her in the past?

Truth be told, every time BEFORE the last election. Her support of The Patriot Act and NSA's domestic surveillance finally put me over the edge.

Feinstein has shown a sudden burst of energy... don't think it will be enough.

I watched when she refused to call for President Trump's impeachment, arguing instead that he "can be a good president" if "he can learn and change."

That sealed the deal with me. She is out of touch. Dangerously so.

And besides so far I like what I am hearing from Kevin de León.
