De Leon has billed himself has a more progressive politician than Feinstein offering a fresh outlook to the party. But, the California Democratic Party was not in favor of making her as a candidate to fight against the Republicans this time.

When she spoke longer than her allotted time, some in the crowd chanted "Time's up!" - referring to her lengthy tenure in Congress. Thirty-seven percent of Democrats backed Feinstein, while 54 percent supported de Leon.

The LA Times notes that "California has grown more liberal, Feinstein has angered part of the Democratic Party's base by her perceived moderation, including her call for "patience" with President Trump."

Despite the rebuke from the party, Feinstein enjoys a large lead in campaign cash and public polling as an incumbent.

Kevin failed to win the 60 percent support needed to win the endorsement at the annual convention of the Democrats despite the support from California Democratic Party.

Mao, for example, was referred to as " lingxiu ", but Xi's two immediate predecessors, Hu Jintao and Jiang Zemin, were not. Xi has evidently been working diligently to clear the way for a third presidential term.

The Political Research Quarterly found that in California's "top-two" election system, the Democrat endorsement generated a gain of between 7 and 15 percent of primary votes. On Sunday morning, de Leon hailed the vote as "an astounding rejection of politics as usual".

The vote came after Mr.de León, who has been running an insurgent campaign, delivered a blistering speech that reflects deep divisions among Democrats here - and across the nation - about how to respond to President Trump.

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

ABC7 News did not receive a response to our request for comments from Senator Feinstein or her office. It failed to unite behind a single candidate in the majority of statewide races, including for governor, where four Democrats are vying to replace outgoing Gov.

They should think carefully about whether Feinstein, who recently voted to kill debate on amending the federal governments warrantless spying under Section 702 and voted for continuing the unconstitutional practice, is the sort of Senator who will stand up for their rights.
