The California Democratic Party declined to endorse incumbent Sen.

Delegates at the California Democratic Party convention on Saturday denied an endorsement to the veteran lawmaker, who received only 37 percent of the almost 2,800 votes cast. He could often be spotted in the hallways of the San Diego Convention Center, aggressively campaigning for the endorsement, and during his major address on Saturday, he slammed Feinstein's record as being hopelessly out of touch with Democratic values. As a senior member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, she promised she would never back funding for a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border.

Delegates at this weekend's California Democratic Party State Convention have decided against making endorsements among the candidates for governor, attorney general and U.S. Senate, a race where incumbent Dianne Feinstein is seeking a sixth term at age 84. Current State Senator Ricardo Lara will receive his Party's endorsement for Insurance Commissioner after gathering 68% of the votes. Her skeptical view of single-payer health care, anti-marijuana stance, and her votes in favor of some President Donald Trump's nominations to key administration jobs rankled activists at the core of the state's Democratic Party. The President Pro Tem of the State Senate received 54 percent of delegates' votes to just 37 percent for Feinstein.

Feinstein, nevertheless, leads handily in fundraising and polling.

In a statement following the vote, de León hailed the result as "an astounding rejection of politics as usual", one that signaled growing momentum for his campaign. His former roommate, Tony Mendoza, resigned Thursday after an investigation concluded he likely sexually harassed six women.

Most California voters say they don't know enough about de León to have an opinion about him.

Feinstein touted her successful measure banning assault weapons in 1994, which has since expired, and pledged she would not rest until a similar bill passes again.

"She shows up now that she's being challenged", said Ana Gonzalez of San Bernardino County.

But de Leon, who authored "sanctuary state" legislation to limit California authorities from cooperating with federal immigration officials, has argued that Feinstein historically failed to stand up for young immigrants brought to the USA illegally as children.
