  1. #1 The Dems have just endorsed DeLeon (instead of Feinstein) in California

    As I have been saying, the Democrats run California and the Hispanic Caucus runs the Democrats. The Hispanic Caucus is entirely Leftist and is mainly concerned with normalizing illegal immigration and getting free money/education/housing etc. for illegals.

    DeLeon is running on an "Abolish Ice" platform: in other words, NO national borders, at least for Mexicans (and others) coming north. It's never the same way going south, despite the number of middle class Americans who might like to retire for cheap along Mexico's coastline.

    The fact that the state Democrat party endorsed DeLeon is frightening. The party clearly doesn't care about American law, or its remaining legal constituents. And lest this be construed as "racist", one of the most groups vehemently opposed to illegal immigration are LEGAL immigrants (from Mexico and elsewhere) as well as Blacks, who are losing jobs to illegals.

    Our jungle primary has left us with two Democrats running for Senate--no republican. The remaining republican voters will have to support Feinstein, who, as bad as she is and has been, has not yet publicly come out for the destruction of national borders.

    Who would have thought that this is where we would be?

    Well, if DiFi loses, her replacement goes in as a freshman, so no chairmanships, majority or minority, on important committees. I don't know how likely it is that Republicans will support her as opposed to just saying "Bring on the End Times."

    Precisely why the repeal (or wussification) of the 2nd is such a major aim of the libs. No leftist crash implementation of the "Utopian Socialist Peoples Democracy" agenda as long as our side has guns & bullets by the gazillion, and the other side doesn't even know what sex they are!

    The numbers you are seeing are not only Dems but Republicans who, figuring that no GOP candidate had a chance in the jungle primary, tried to head off the more extreme leftists by voting DiFi. The endorsement could change those numbers, and, as was pointed out above, the GOP might just say "Bring on the end times" and vote for DeLeon, just to get DiFi out of the important intelligence Gang of Eight among other committees.

    I don't know. We'll see.

    Very true, TBH, I only shared the top two in that race. Total vote count was 5,404,625


    With 11 Republicans in that race taking 1,825,470 votes total. Or 34% of the votes.
    Dems had 10 in that race. Of the 8 who didn't make the top 2 took 373,264 votes total. Or 7% of the remaining votes.
    With various independents 10 of them taking the remaining 177,868 votes. About 5% of what was left.

    Lets be honest here. It's a long shot to unseat DF. Most Republicans there will just sit home. The Dems who their choice failed to make the top 2 will split between the two with DF likely picking up the majority of them.

    DF is the favored among pollsters to win here. Even with Kevin de León taking the Parties blessings.

    I don't know about Republicans sitting home. There is a gas tax repeal on the ballot. There are many, many Californians (conservatives especially) who signed the petition to get it on the ballot. This is the repeal of a gas tax that will raise our gas to almost $5/gal by 2020 and that's not the end of it. This is money that the state claims will go for roads/road repair, but if you look at it, there is nothing in the law that restricts the money for that purpose. In fact, the governor can spend it any way he wants. Chances are it will go into state pensions. (Our pension system is out of control.)

    So, if the gas tax repeal gets enough publicity, there will be many Republicans who come out just to vote for the gas tax. We'll see what they do about DiFi and the illegal immigrant enabler/traitor.

    Based on her age, if she is re-elected, this will be her last campaign. She will be relatively free from political pressure. I know that she is a big liberal and I don't agree with her on most issues but I don't believe that she is an insane progressive. I actually think she is a patriotic (somewhat misguided) American. If I lived in California, I would vote for her in November.

    She and Babs Boxer used to have half a brain between them, and was the only one who occasionally used it. Between her and DeLeon I'll either vote Feinstein or this war hero

    Note to "Warpy" and "shockey80": I voted for Donald Trump! I would do so again!
