Facing Unrest On The Left, Dianne Feinstein Draws A Primary Opponent

In her quarter-century in the U.S. Senate representing California, Dianne Feinstein has built a reputation as a bipartisan bridge builder, a collegial member of a legislative body that values seniority and, at least until recently, civility.

Ending months of speculation about his political future, State Senate President Kevin de León of Los Angeles announced Sunday that he's challenging Feinstein for the Democratic nomination.
