The San Diego Union-Tribune, California's third largest daily newspaper, has given a ringing endorsement to Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein, saying the 84-year-old politician has "amply earned" re-election in her bid for a sixth term.
"The seriousness and sincerity with which she approaches her duties is welcome these days," the newspaper wrote in an editorial published Friday.
“Given that we have a president with neither of those qualities — one who leaves Americans feeling buffeted on a daily basis — Feinstein's value to California and the nation is hard to exaggerate. She has 'lot left to be done' and has amply earned another six years as a U.S. senator."
The Union-Tribune notes that in its editorial board meeting with Feinstein, she "made a persuasive case that her overall record includes far more pluses than minuses. In so doing, she should ease anyone's concerns about the wisdom of electing an 84-year-old to another six-year term."
"She displayed a ready command of big issues that few could hope to match — starting with immigration, climate change, school gun violence, CIA spying, Russian meddling, the Me Too movement, privacy in the era of social media and, yes, the chaos caused by Trump's erratic management style."
