California Democratic Party Has Endorsed State Sen. Kevin De Leon… Seriously?

Tearing Themselves Apart

Democrats will never cease to amaze. If only they would do it somewhere other than the great state of California.

For any who don’t know, California State Senator Kevin De Leon ran against incumbent U.S. Senator Diane Feinstein in the California Primary last month and lost, by about 1.7 million votes -- he ran as an underdog, with a long shot at best, and lost having accrued only 12 percent of the vote, compared to Feinstein’s 44 percent. Stats like that would explain why the California Democratic Party (C.D.P.) would reject Feinstein and endorse De Leon; if it were high on something. What gives?

There are several interesting areas to look at relative to the impact of the primary vote, and the subsequent endorsement.

First on the list is; what is wrong with re-electing Feinstein? She should be popular. Trump supporters know what is wrong with her, and the entire Democrat (Dem) roster, but from a Dem standpoint, she seems to offer everything they look for; she has been in office forever, sits on a bunch of committees and does nothing. She seems to be there for personal enrichment and she supported Barack Obama. On the surface, she looks like she would be their dream candidate, but a little more research suggests that she committed the Dem equivalent of a mortal sin; Feinstein said in a public forum last year that “… Trump, given time, could become a good president…” Wow, she is lucky they do not have public hangings anymore or she would have been a goner.

Feinstein’s suggestion was apparently what drew the ire of the C.D.P.. We must now look at De Leon, who some suggest represents the ‘new, younger face of the Democrat Party’.

Firstly, he flunked out of U.C. Santa Barbara, then went to work at a nonprofit group teaching English to immigrants. In 1994, he went to work as a labour organizer, and later returned to school and graduated with honors. He has a grown daughter with his former girlfriend, who is the Vice Mayor of San Jose, CA.

His political career has focused on liberal causes like illegal immigration, climate change and gun control. His legislative efforts seemed to peak in 2011 and 2012, but he apparently got back in the action by supporting the California sanctuary state legislation.

He also got the endorsement of billionaire Tom Steyer during the primary. We should pause for a minute, and consider that endorsement. To the unsuspecting eye, one might think the nod from Steyer is a vote of confidence in the candidate. Knowing who Steyer is, however, confirms it is negative; Steyer supports causes not people. He couldn’t care less who is in office, as long as that person is bringing his progressive liberal causes to the forefront. In fact, the dumber the candidate, the more he would support him or her. The endorsement is strictly designed to buy a candidate, once that candidate is in office. Why do you think Trump got no such endorsements, but Hillary Clinton did? Trump could not be bought, while Hillary carried a “for sale” sign everywhere she went.

In terms of De Leon, anyone paying attention should be able to see the obvious; he represents the Democrats for who they are and his record shows it. The C.D.P. endorsing the losing candidate shows their disconnect with their constituents and the rest of the California population. It also shows how much they do not work for the people.

California residents, and pro-Trumpers, look at their endorsement with excitement! It is about time that we get a Republican in the Senate, hopefully we will get a good one…
