California Republicans for Kevin De Leon for U.S. Senate

I agree with my friend Jim Lacy on this.

According to a very recent Public Policy Institute of California Poll, Senator Dianne Feinstein’s lead over Kevin De Leon for re-election to her U.S. Senate seat has been cut in half, down from 22 points earlier this summer to 11 points now.  Some observers say Feinstein’s drop in the Democrat-on-Democrat runoff, can be attributed to her insidious performance in the Senate Judiciary Committee on Judge Brett Kavanaugh’s nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court.   They say Republican voters who are “orphaned” in the Democrat-only election, who were previously lined up to vote for the much older Feinstein over former State Senate President Kevin De Leon, are having trouble sticking with Feinstein over the shabby treatment she has given President Trump’s nominee in the Committee.

Count me in as one of those conservative voters who will reject Feinstein on November 6 and vote for De Leon instead!….

…I am outraged at what Dianne Feinstein has done to Brett Kavanaugh.  The one power I have to address this outrage is to not vote for her.  But that is not enough in my opinion.  Democrats who rule in California have succeeded in disenfranchising Republicans like me out of the option of voting for a Republican party candidate in the General election.  But they can’t stop me from just ignoring my ballot in this election.  So I am going to do what those Democrats would think unthinkable of me.  I am going to vote for Kevin De Leon for the U.S. Senate this November and heartily encourage all my Republican friends to do the same.  Let’s make the treatment of Brett Kavanaugh the reason why Dianne Feinstein is finally retired from politics.  It will not make the Senate more liberal, it will simply make California’s liberal Senate representation less effective.  And I believe, God will still help us even with Kevin De Leon.

One of the few times in recent memory I have voted for such an outspoken leftie. But, Senator Feinstein is just THAT bad for California.

CA-Sen: Senator Dianne Feinstein Doesn’t See The Point in Debating Republican Elizabeth Emken

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.

CA-Sen: Why Won’t Senator Dianne Feinstein Debate?

Well, Senator Feinstein doesn’t want to take a shoo-in campaign for re-election and turn it into a gaffe-fest.

Soooo, DiFi will do some token events, raise lots of money and ignore Republican challenger Elizabeth Emken.

Works for her – but pretty pathetic government in very blue California.

I thought the Senator was going to take the reporter’s shoulder off…..

CA-Sen: Conservative California Republican Assembly Endorses Al Ramirez for U.S. Senate

While the California Republican Party has endorsed Elizabeth Emken for California United State Senate, the more conservative California Republican Assembly has just announced their endorsement for businessman, Al Ramirez.

Republican U.S. Senate candidate Al Ramirez, an accomplished businessman, received the endorsement of the California Republican Assembly (CRA) at the group’s endorsing convention on Sunday.

“I’m incredibly pleased and honored to have the support of the State’s oldest and largest Republican volunteer organization,” said Ramirez.  “The endorsement of the CRA demonstrates that our message is resonating with Republicans across the State.  We simply cannot afford more of the same socialistic policies of Feinstein and Obama.  It’s time to restore the American Dream in California.”

The CRA endorsement is one of the most coveted in all of Republican politics.  Ronald Reagan even referred to the CRA as “The conscience of the Republican Party.”

Candidates seeking the CRA endorsement went through a rigorous vetting process which included giving speeches to the entire delegation and facing a session of tough questioning in front of a “Fact Finding Committee.”  In order to receive an endorsement, a candidate must be supported by two-thirds of the voting delegates.

Ramirez was endorsed overwhelmingly by a vote of the entire CRA delegation late Sunday morning.

This endorsement has to deliver a decided edge to Ramirez, especially with so many candidates in the race vying to run against the front-runner and incumbent Senator Dianne Feinstein.

Millions of dollars were embezzled from her campaign. Twenty-two challengers are trying to knock her off in the June primary. And the stakes in the November election are nothing less than control of Capitol Hill.

But U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein isn’t a bit worried. Her campaign is on cruise control, her re-election all but certain — yet again.

After holding elected office for all but five of the last 42 years, Feinstein is the doyenne of California Democrats. She’s so politically bulletproof that no A-list candidates are wasting their time and money trying to dethrone her.

At 78, Feinstein has become the rare lawmaker who plays to her own political base while not overly riling her opponents. “She should have her easiest re-election ever,” said Gary Jacobson, a UC San Diego political science professor.

Feinstein, who won her last two elections in landslides, attributes her success to her work ethic and her ability to get along with fellow Washington politicians during venomous times. “I am known for working hard, and I can tell you if I wasn’t, I would have some major opposition,” Feinstein said in an interview last week.

Just how little she has to worry about was shown in a recent Survey USA poll. It found 51 percent of California’s likely voters intend to vote for Feinstein, while Republicans Elizabeth Emken of Danville and Dan Hughes of Oceanside were backed by 2 percent each. All other candidates clocked in at either 1 percent or zero.

But, will this endorsement be enough for Ramirez to come in second place above Elizbeth Emken and Dan Hughes?
