CALIFORNIA DEMOCRATS FOR US SENATE
As California’s senior Senator, Dianne Feinstein has focused on solving problems facing California and our nation. In June, she carried every county and won the 2018 California Primary by more than 2 million votes for reelection to the US Senate.
Her accomplishments in the Senate include legislation increasing vehicle fuel economy standards; protecting amateur athletes from sexual abuse; preserving the Mojave Desert, Lake Tahoe and our forests; consumer protection, food safety and cyber security; drought relief; securing funding for critical projects; and commonsense gun laws, including the landmark assault weapons ban.
She authored the Senate’s Keep Families Together Act, which was cosponsored by every Democratic Senator, to stop Trump’s policy of separating children from their families at the border.
In 2017, Senator Feinstein became ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and oversees judicial nominations and its investigation of Russia’s interference in the 2016 election and obstruction of justice. She also currently is a senior member of the Intelligence and Appropriations Committees.
Feinstein’s career has been one of firsts – she was the first woman President of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, the first woman Mayor of San Francisco, the first woman elected Senator of California, the first woman member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, and the first woman to be ranking member of the Committee. Dianne also was the first woman to chair the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and the Senate Rules and Administration Committee.
Prior to her election to the Senate, Dianne was elected to the San Francisco County Board of Supervisors and served 2 ½ terms as President of the Board. She became Mayor of San Francisco in November 1978 following the assassination of Mayor George Moscone and Supervisor Harvey Milk.
The following year she was elected to the first of two four-year terms. In 1987, City and State Magazine named her the nation’s “Most Effective Mayor.”
Today she continues to work on critical issues and fight for California’s values.
Kevin de León has led the 40-member California State Senate body to historic accomplishments that will improve the lives of Californians and the state’s environment and economy for decades to come.
He has ushered a bold agenda to increase economic opportunity for all Californians with a focus on maintaining California’s global leadership role in fighting climate change and building a clean-energy economy, rebuilding our state’s infrastructure, public education, work-place and health-care, equity for women, immigrants and low-wage workers and public safety.
Through his ambitious approach to policymaking, Senator de León has authored groundbreaking legislation on a variety of issues that have become national models. The progress that has been made on critical issues confronting California and the nation stands in stark contrast to the gridlock in the U.S. Congress.
In many ways, Senator de León embodies the promise of America. From a childhood of poverty to community activism, to the upper echelon of the California Legislature, his respect and commitment to working families and the betterment of all Californians has never diminished.
When Planned Parenthood advocated this year for an increase in higher Medi-Cal reimbursement rates for reproductive health care, Senator de León carried their fight into budget negotiations and secured $50 million from Proposition 56 tobacco tax revenue.
Guided by a strong belief in a woman’s right to control her own health care, Senator de León has been stalwart defender for preserving federal funding for family planning as a Republican-led Congress continues to target Planned Parenthood for defunding.
Senator de León’s strong and unwavering advocacy for access and choice has been recognized by Planned Parenthood with a consistent 100 percent voting record and numerous awards, with special recognition in 2014 for legislative leadership.
Alarmed by the serious problem posed nationwide by sexual violence on college campuses, Senator de León set out to find solutions for California.
In 2014, his bill to prevent sexual assault on college campuses was first law in the nation to require affirmative consent, earning him the recognition from Marie Claire last year as one of the “ten biggest supporters of women’s right in U.S. government.” Ms. Magazine selected his “yes means yes” measure as the most significant legislative victory on behalf of women for 2014. He followed up with legislation in 2015 that requires public high schools teaching health education classes to include sexual assault prevention in their curricula.
Also in 2015, he empowered women in the workforce with state budget funding for thousands of more slots for subsidized child cares.
