The far left activists in the Democratic Party have determined that California senator Dianne Feinstein is not far enough to the left for their liking. As a result, they are trying to replace her with someone more radical.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
California Progressives Target Feinstein With Full-on Assault Ahead of Dem Primary
Progressives in California this week intensified their efforts to unseat incumbent Democratic senator Dianne Feinstein, linking her to President Donald Trump and deriding her for not behaving “like a Democrat.”
A political action committee linked to Feinstein’s primary challenger on Thursday released a new 60-second ad in the Los Angeles media market castigating the incumbent.
A Progressive California is responsible for the ad, titled “Act Like Democrats,” which calls on Californians to support state senator Kevin de León’s bid to unseat Feinstein, who is seeking a fifth term in office. The Super PAC formed last October to back de León, who just ended his final term as leader of the state senate.
De León is vying to defeat Feinstein, 84, in California’s Democratic primary on June 5, when candidates from all political parties will face each other on a single ballot, with the top two vote-getters moving forward to a head-to-head matchup in November. The race has further exposed the increasing progressive-establishment divide in California Democratic politics, with A Progressive California’s ad illustrating some of the key divisions.
The far left thinks its time has come but they may live to regret this. They are only causing more strife in a party that is already deeply divided.
