Feinstein Backing Hahn

February 14, 2011

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) isn't waiting to see who else jumps in the race to replace Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.). On Monday, the state's senior senator threw her support behind Los Angeles City Councilwoman Janice Hahn, who so far is winning the endorsement war with her early and rapid start.

Hahn, who announced her campaign the same day Harman said she would step down Tuesday to head the bipartisan Woodrow Wilson Center, spent last week and this weekend touting other key endorsements, including Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, state Assembly Speaker John Perez, former Los Angeles Lakers point guard Magic Johnson, along with several local mayors and labor support. Harman has said she'll remain neutral in the race to replace her, which will likely be held in June.

The two women whose entrance could change the race's dynamics still haven't made a decision - Secretary of State Debra Bowen and progressive activist Marcy Winograd, who challenged Harman twice in the Democratic primary. Both women are more liberal than the moderate Hahn, and Winograd indicated last week she wasn't happy with Hahn's support for Israel and that she was considering running if there wasn't a progressive alternative. Bowen has said she's heavily considering the race, but so far hasn't made an official announcement, although she has informed state party leaders she intends to run.
