Can there be any wonder why the Senior Senator from CA the 79 year-old Dianne Feinstein refuses to debate the more accomplished Elizabeth Emken?
You can run but you can’t keep hiding Dianne. The voters in CA are finally on to you and your woeful record that has put California citizens at 49th place in unemployment in the United States.
Californian’s can no longer tolerate a U.S. Senator that has grown tired and virtually believes the senate seat belongs to her. They are ready for Elizabeth Emken who will work with them not against them to overturn ObamaCare and bring jobs and growth to CA and the rest of the United States.
Elizabeth Emken understands taxation and its effect on new jobs and business growth. Senator Feinstein apparently has forgotten what she learned in that area. It is clearly time for a changing of the guard.

When the voters cast their ballots on November 6th, they will be saying, “Out with the old and in with the new, Dianne Feinstein we are tired of you.”
They now understand that profits employ and your tax policies destroy as they have to their once “Golden State.”

As the parent of an autistic child, Elizabeth Emken is used to challenges. She discusses her latest, running against Sen. Dianne Feinstein, with Patt Morrison.
Like many parents of autistic children, Elizabeth Emken’s priorities changed when she heard her son’s diagnosis. But most parents do not wind up running for U.S. Senate. Emken’s 12.5% of the vote in the June primary makes her the GOP challenger to Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein. She’s a UCLA graduate in economics and political science who worked at IBM before launching into more than a decade of lobbying for autism legislation. She’ll be in Tampa — home of the Buccaneers football team — for next week’s GOP convention. And while a football coach, as her father once was, might assess her chances against Feinstein as “fourth and very long,” like so many other parents of autistic kids, Emken is used to those odds.
Veteran GOP office holders chose not to run against Dianne Feinstein. What do you know that they don’t?
What is a legitimate or credible candidate for office? I offer something very different from the lifelong career politicians who have worked their way up to run for higher office or those who can parachute in with checks for $5 million or $10 million, and that seems to be the definition of credible or legitimate. I’m rejecting that premise.
