California U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein talking to the San Francisco Chronicle Editorial Board
Well, it is clear that Senator Feinstein will NOT be debating her opponent, Republican Elizabeth Emken.
California Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein, in the midst of a 2012 re-election campaign, said today that she has no intention of debating her GOP opponent, Danville activist Elizabeth Emken, because “I haven’t seen the point.”
Feinstein, who has served in the U.S. Senate since 1992, made the comments today during an hour-long Chronicle editorial board session.
Just weeks ago, California’s senior senator walked out on ABC 7?s Mark Matthews when he asked her about her decision this time to sidestep a debate. (“Some reporters get under your skin,” she laughed, when we noted that.)
I had DiFi’s previous refusal to debate Elizabeth Emken here, as Feinstein get testy with a reporter.
Here is today’s video:
I understand that the Senator is a long-standing and seasoned POL. Most Californians know her stands on the issues and she will win in a landslide.
But, to refuse to debate her opponent leaves a bad taste in most voter’s mouths, including mine.Dianne Feinstein, Elizabeth Emken
