The California Democratic Party endorsed State Sen. Kevin de Léon (D-Los Angeles) over incumbent U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) on Saturday, as the two Democrats prepare to face off in the November general election.
“The California Democratic Party’s Executive Board voted Saturday night to endorse state Sen. Kevin de León for U.S. Senate over Sen. Dianne Feinstein. De León received 65 percent of the vote, compared to just 7 percent for Feinstein. An endorsement required 60 percent,” Bay Area public radio station KQED reported.
De Léon holds far-left views on immigration, gun control, and other issues. Last year, he admitted that half of his family was in the country illegally. Earlier this year, he appointed an illegal alien to a statewide office. He is also the author of SB 54, one of the three surviving “sanctuary state” laws that the Trump administration challenged earlier this year.
