      Boxer represents California pretty well.
      Feinstein is a corporate tool

      She benefits from the fact that the republican party in CA repeatedly puts wingnuts up to oppose her, and from the fact that no serious primary challenge has occurred, she'll be in office till she retires.

      I did vote against her in the primaries, in hopes that with our new "top two" primary system we might end up with two Dems, and actually have a real conversation about her this political season.  But the R managed to pull out a second place finish.

      •  Many union longshore workers vote for Feinstein (0+ / 0-)

        As US wages increase, more companies will outsource to China; thus increasing the amount of work that unionized longshore workers have.
