Californians are choosing between two Democrats in the U.S. Senate contest.
Incumbent U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein faces a challenge from state Sen. Kevin de Leon on Tuesday’s ballot.
A Feinstein victory would keep the state’s Democratic political order sharply intact. A de Leon win would be a stunning come-from-behind upset.
He has argued that California deserves a new voice in Washington who is more willing to fight for progressive values.
Feinstein says she has the experience to get things done for California and a track record to prove it.
At 85, Feinstein is the oldest U.S. senator. De Leon, who is 51, isn’t directly making her age an issue. But he’s argued for a “new voice” and “new vision” in Washington.
Feinstein was first elected to the Senate in 1992.
