Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-Calif.) failure to win her party’s endorsement at California’s state convention is triggering new questions about whether the Democratic Party has become the Progressive Party amid grass-roots enthusiasm driven by opposition to President Trump.
Feinstein won a paltry 37 percent in the weekend vote, and was trounced by California Senate leader Kevin de León, who ran to the left of the veteran politician.
The president’s senior adviser and son-in-law Jared Kushner has lost his interim, top-secret security clearance. The reports say Kushner will have access to a lower level of classified information.
SAN DIEGO, Calif. — Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-Calif.) main Democratic rival blocked the longtime incumbent from gaining the California Democratic Party’s coveted endorsement in her high-profile reelection race.
State Senate leader Kevin de León (D), who’s mounted a campaign running to the left of Feinstein, garnered 54 percent of delegates’ votes at the state party’s annual convention in San Diego. But he ultimately fell short of the 60 percent needed to win the endorsement.
Feinstein, meanwhile, came in much farther behind, at just 37 percent. Another Democratic Senate candidate, Pat Harris, got 5 percent of the vote, while 3 percent voted for no endorsement.

Washington – The Tennessee woman who police said attempted to drive her vehicle into a White House barricade yelled out in court during her initial hearing Saturday: “My fiance is the president.”
Jessica Ford, 35, of La Vergne, Tennessee, was arrested by Secret Service officers Friday shortly after the incident which began around 3 p.m., when she attempted to drive her white van into a barricade. According to court documents, authorities say Ford, while sitting behind the wheel, was also holding what appeared to have been a handgun.
Officers at the scene Friday, according to the documents, ordered Ford multiple times to drop the gun. Ford refused. An officer reached through the driver’s side window and removed the gun from her hands. Ford then refused to exit the vehicle, at which point officers pulled her out through the window and placed her under arrest.
