Newsom’s Power Play: Plans to Replace Feinstein with Interim Appointee!

In a surprising revelation, Governor Gavin Newsom has announced that he would name an “interim appointment” for Senator Dianne Feinstein rather than choosing from the three Democrats who are currently running for her seat. Newsom made this statement on NBC’s Meet the Press, stating that he didn’t want to get involved in the primary race. This decision comes as Feinstein has faced health complications from the shingles virus earlier this year.

While Newsom expressed his subjectivity on the topic, he also emphasized that it would be unfair to the Democrats who have been working hard in the primary race. With a matter of months left before the primary, he doesn’t want to tip the balance and disrupt the democratic process. This shows a commitment to fairness and ensuring that all candidates have an equal opportunity.

Currently, Reps. Adam Schiff, Barbara Lee, and Katie Porter are the three Democrats vying for Feinstein’s seat. Schiff seems to be leading the pack according to recent polls. However, Newsom is determined to fulfill his 2021 promise of choosing a Black woman to replace Feinstein. This has sparked hope among supporters of Lee, who see this as a chance for her to become the sole Black woman candidate.

Newsom further highlighted the capabilities of Feinstein’s staff, stating that they are “still extraordinarily active.” He expressed his well wishes for the Senator, showing respect and admiration for her work. However, Newsom also made it clear that he isn’t keen on making another Senate appointment, as he already filled Vice President Kamala Harris’s seat with Senator Alex Padilla.

It will be interesting to see how this situation unfolds and who Newsom ultimately chooses as the interim appointment. The decision will undoubtedly have an impact on the upcoming primary and shape the future of California’s representation in the Senate.
