Sen. Dianne Feinstein is seeking a sixth term representing California but she's now in the race without the support of the state's Democratic Party, which declined to endorse her re-election bid over the weekend. However, 60-percent is needed to receive the party's official endorsement.

"With Democrats still licking their wounds from the 2016 election, some of the party's biggest stars, including U.S. Sen". Many of them don't like her pragmatism on law and order issues or her unwillingness to fight President Donald Trump on everything he tweets and everything he proposes.

While the party didn't endorse Feinstein, who's been in Congress since 1992, they didn't endorse her challenger either.

The results were a sign of discomfort among many liberals who believe Feinstein should do more to challenge President Trump - and of de León's strong connections to the party's activist left flank. Still, for all her difficulties, she has appeared to be in a dominant position leading into the June 5 primary with Mr.de León. He called it "an astounding rejection of politics as usual" and a boost to his campaign's momentum. Dianne Feinstein of California. Although she has been a politician for most of her adult life, Feinstein is also a crusader for Democratic Party causes.

But the party was fractured.

Newsom received the most votes - 39 percent - winning a consolation prize of bragging rights.

De Leon argues that Feinstein, who is considered to be the establishment pick, has grown out of touch with the more progressive California that has developed since she began her political career. He was trailed by Chiang at 30 percent, Eastin at 20 percent and Villaraigosa at 9 percent.

The longtime senator focused on her specific legislative record, including on gun control and sexual assault, saying she's a long fighter for Democratic values with the clout to get things done. She pledged to do it again if elected.

At 84, Feinstein is the oldest member of the Senate.
