Rep. Katie Porter announces bid for Feinstein’s Senate seat
Rep. Katie Porter, a protege of Sen. Elizabeth Warren, announced a bid for Sen. Dianne Feinstein's seat.
Katie Porter is the best thing to come out of Orange County since... well, maybe anything. She would be fabulous in the Senate, though I worry that her House seat would be swooped up by Republicans since OC's politics are wildly unpredictable.
I also think it's neat that the two frontrunners, Porter and Schiff, are from Southern California, and electing either of them would mean that neither Senator would be from Northern California for the first time since 1969.
After the last week in the House, can ya blame her? Can you imagine having to work with those clowns daily?
We need to start mobilizing for her House seat now. Too close last time.
Yayyy Katie! Would LOVE to see her in the Senate. We need more people in Congress like Katie -- fighting for people. LOVE when she brings out her whiteboard!
Thrilled she’s going for it. I’ll be voting for her if she gets the nod.
CA senator a decent place to be to set up for a 2032 Presidential run. No one can predict the future, but if Biden wins 2024, history says a 3rd term for the same party in 2028 is going to be tough. I don't envy the Dem Presidential candidate in 2028. Perhaps Kamala is being set up for a HRC/Gore defeat, as people just get antsy and want some sort of change after a double dose of 1 party. Guess H. Bush won a 3rd term for the same party, but then he got one-termed, despite winning a hot war and overseeing the collapse of the USSR.
Her cringey book reading for the cameras this week reminded me that she's an actor just like the rest of them :/
She needs to hope that Feinstein doesn’t die. If she does newsom will appoint somebody and they’ll be too tough to defeat. Same as Padilla.
She's notoriously shitty to her staff.
But the whiteboard brand is strong and she'll be a strong contender.
It would be nice if our representative wasn't a transplant that literally only knows about Irvine and Sacramento...
But she chaired for Elizabeth Warren so she has my vote. Fuck student debt, education is not just for the rich and public schools should be nearly free for while our taxes should ensure that happens, specifically taxes on the wealthy and well paid. Said as someone who is not moderately paid and has almost no student debt left.
I’m ecstatic. I think she will win it.
Years ago a felt this way about Elizabeth Warren, and she delivered. GO KATIE!!! You can do it girl!!!!
