Danville Resident Elizabeth Emken, is running for the U.S. senate against Dianne Feinstein, spoke with the San Francisco Chronicle reporter, Carla Marinucci recently.
The Politics Blog from the Chronicle writes: “The GOP Woman who dareth challenge Feinstein.”
She’s taken on the political equivalent of a suicide mission: She’s aiming to take on U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who is arguably the most popular politician in California.
Indeed there is serious argument about Feinstein’s popularity as a politician in California. More telling, there is a huge number of Californians that want to see her beaten badly on November 6th.
The Emken campaign is gathering serious financial momentum with contributions coming in from California as well as most of the United States, indicative of an electorate that understands the aging senior senator must be put out to pasture.
Feinstein reported, “I was wiped out too, we don’t know how much,” indicating the losses in campaign funds could run into hundreds of thousands, or even millions, of dollars. Feinstein, has loaned her campaign $5 million according to disclosure reports filed with the Federal Election Commission. This from the candidate who had put her campaign on cruise control.
Far from sounding confident along with her desperation speech given yesterday on lowering taxes; Feinstein proved to the Santa Barabara, Chamber of Commerce luncheon, the 79 year old senior senator from CA appeared to be in the panic mode.
In a video, the Chronicles Carla Marinucci wanted to find out why Emken is going after Feinstein in such a seemingly impossible race. Marinucci kicks it off with asking Emken: “Are you insane?”
She answers: “No, I’m not insane. Diane Feinstein, is polling at the worst of her political career. California is ready for a change.”
Emken continues in the video to say she believes in the free market and America is the greatest country on earth.
Elizabeth Emken with solid economic and private underpinnings will help turn the U.S. and CA around. Dianne Feinstein will be unseated because she still clings to failed policies of the past.
