The backing of 60 percent of the delegates was needed to secure the party's official endorsement. A hot button issue that de Leon uses to back his position on Feinstein is what he considers to be an unwillingness to fight for the many young immigrants in the state that were brought to California as children through no fault of their own. This is why they backed Kevin as he was a fresh candidate in the mix. Dianne Feinstein's re-election bid this year, with delegates at the party's annual convention giving the majority of votes to her top primary challenger, progressive State Sen.

The party's indecision highlights a major rift within the progressive movement, with politicians and activists unsure how to tackle President Trump and their GOP opponents ahead of the 2018 midterm elections.

The statement appears to confirm media reports last week that said scores of Russian mercenaries were being treated at Russian military hospitals. "There are also several dozens wounded", it added, without specifying exact numbers.

"The outcome of today's endorsement vote is an astounding rejection of politics as usual, and it boosts our campaign's momentum as we all stand shoulder-to-shoulder against a complacent status quo", said de Leon, according to Politico. Along the way, Feinstein became the first woman to serve as president of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, the first woman ever to hold the job of mayor of San Francisco and the first woman to represent California in the United States Senate.

"California's greatness comes from acts of human audacity, not congressional seniority", Mr.de León said. Feinstein only recently 37 percent of the vote. The question is whether de Leon's good showing will push Feinstein further left, too.

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.
