California Democratic Party declines to endorse Dianne Feinstein. It's about time

California candidates pull out all the stops to woo Democratic delegates for an endorsement

But the snubbing of Feinstein led de León to claim a victory for his struggling campaign.

While the party's delegates have expressed their approval for de Leon, Feinstein still seems in good position to win the Democratic primary.

Kevin de Leon rose to prominence in recent months after authoring the party's "Sanctuary State" legislation, a bill that limits local authorities' cooperation with federal authorities in cracking down in illegal immigration.

De Leon says the weekend's happenings can only add momentum to his own campaign and characterizes the failure of either candidate to receive the party's endorsement as an "astounding rejection" of usual politics.

The battle between the two Democrats ahead of the June 5 primary underscores an emerging war for the soul of their party, even as they eye big gains against President Trump and the GOP in November.

There was no immediate reaction from Feinstein.

"California's greatness comes from acts of human audacity, not congressional seniority", León said.

Feinstein is seeking her fifth full term in office and has the support of Sen.

No official endorsement was given either to the four Democrats that involved in the race to replace Governor Jerry Brown.

Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, a former San Francisco mayor, took 39 percent of the vote, with state Treasurer John Chiang and former state schools chief Delaine Easton not far behind. "California Democrats are hungry for new leadership that will fight for California values from the front lines, not equivocate on the sidelines".

The 76-year-old who lives in Mill Valley said that the political establishment and the media would come after him if he decides to run.
