In Califorinia’s “jungle primary” race that is all Democratic, Senator Dianne Feinstein is facing voter backlash and criticism from the left over her “too little, too late” failure to stop the confirmation of newly minted Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. Her detractors argue that she delayed release of the sexual assault allegations too long. Feinstein still leads in the polls despite her struggles with the core of her base defecting to socialist state senator Kevin de Leon. It’s an odd situation in which Republicans are actually defending Feinstein for being the lesser of two evils. “The last thing they want is de Leon in Washington. It’s a strategic vote to limit socialism.”
Here’s more from Fox News…
For many Republicans nationally, Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., became public enemy No. 1 for her leading role in the Democrats’ failed bid to keep Justice Brett Kavanaugh off the Supreme Court. Supporters at a recent President Trump rally even made her the new target of the familiar “lock her up” chant.
Meanwhile, her progressive challenger in California’s all-Democrat Senate race, state Senate President Pro Tem Kevin de Leon, faults her for doing too little to stop the confirmation.
The chorus of criticism from both sides shows how the aftermath of the Kavanaugh fight is weighing uniquely on the senior Democrat’s political race back home. While most Democrats who opposed Kavanaugh were cheered by the base, Feinstein ended up with a lose-lose scenario – condemned by the right for airing the sexual-assault allegations and by the left for not doing so sooner.
