It's time for Kevin de Leon

WTF, Dianne?
Seriously, how senile is Dianne Feinstein?
She’s almost 90 and it’s really showing.
Saturday, she got booed at California’s Democratic Party convention.
Because we are tired of having her as our senator.  We are tired of her compromises.  We are tired of her embracing war.

We are tired of all the sweetheart deals she has on the side for her husband.
We are tired of her.

The top-two primary system in heavily Democratic California allows the two highest vote-getters to advance to the general election regardless of party identification.
It's the first time Feinstein, 84, failed to win the party's backing since her first successful U.S. Senate campaign in 1994, though she's lacked a credible Democratic challenger in previous races.
Delegates who withheld their support said they think Feinstein has been in Washington too long and hasn't stood strong enough for immigrants.
When she spoke longer than her allotted time, some in the crowd chanted "Time's up!" -- referring to her lengthy tenure in Congress. Thirty-seven percent of Democrats backed Feinstein, while 54 percent supported de Leon.
The vote took place Saturday evening and was counted overnight. On Sunday morning, de Leon hailed the vote as "an astounding rejection of politics as usual."



Did you read that first sentence?
If you’re not from California, it might not make sense to you.

Kevin de Leon is a clear alternative to Dianne Feinstein.  They'll face off in about four months in the state primary -- they're competing for the state's US Senate seat.  The top two in the primary -- it's an open primary, not a party primary -- will be on the ballot in November 2018.
Pretty basic to us, but we live in California.
Martha and Shirley stopped counting at 300 e-mails – e-mails coming in insisting that could not be the case.
Yes, it is the case.
That’s how things work in California.
And we vote in California. 
And we’re going to vote for Kevin Leon this June.  And if he’s on the ballot in November for the general election, we’ll be voting for him then.
We live in California, this is our race.  If it’s not your race, stay the hell out of it.  It’s not your job – Audrey Regan – to get involved so butt the hell out.
