Billionaire donor Tom Steyer has endorsed state Sen. Kevin de Leon in the Democratic primary – passing over long-time incumbent Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., the Washington Examiner is reporting.

"I think he's the kind of young progressive that reflects California and would be a very strong advocate for our state nationally," Steyer told the Examiner. "I know him well and he's a friend. We share a lot of values."

De Leon is challenging Feinstein, who has been in the Senate for 25 years, in the June 5 primary. He has brought in $670,000 compared to her $10 million.

"I have nothing bad to say about Dianne Feinstein," Steyer said. "I have a lot of good to say about Kevin de Leon."

The Los Angeles Times reported Steyer is among the largest Democratic donors in the county. 

The newspaper noted he has committed more than $50 million to push for President Donald Trump's impeachment and to help register young voters.
