she’s got zeal give her that
100%, newsom will get to appoint 2
I understand the expectation is that he will appoint himself to Feinstein’s seat if it comes open, and would’ve appointed himself to Harris’s but for not wanting the state to change executives during COVID.
boo give it to whitehouse
It would be pretty odd for him to appoint himself, no?
Senator Porter IMO
It’s only happened nine times in U.S. history and not since 1977. 8 of the 9 failed to win re-election to serve a full term. Still, there’s a growing sentiment that Newsom appoint himself including former SF mayor Willie Brown suggesting it recently.

She flipped her district last term and was able to defend it pretty easily. There’s no guarantee you can keep that district blue if she gets the senate seat. She’s a rock star and will move up eventually.
can't appoint Porter, like Truman said can't risk that seat
Not unheard of. In Alaska Frank Murkowski was our US senator for like 20 years. In 2002 he ran for governor and won. As governor he got to picked his replacement in the US Senate. He picked his daughter, Lisa Murkowski.
Barbara Lee should get it just for being the only congressperson to vote against Iraq
She's awesome. I wish she had been Speaker the past two years but she's too old.
Ro Khanna or Ted Lieu. I would suggest Karen Bass, buuuuut Scientology

Ted Lieu please
What does Ted Lieu bring besides a good twitter presence?

Kevin de Leon is available, currently on the LA City Council but used to be president pro tempore of the CA State Senate.
I voted for him against Feinstein in 2018
Ah yes, the dishonesty was a red line for trump. I'll be happy when mags crawls back in her hole
NYT will never stop covering Trump, and she’s going to be on the beat. Too much money at stake.
But Trump is the president of all the states so he can do it.
People don’t even believe Fox anymore
I think one of them has an associates degree
"good by Fox"
My gut is that it will be someone not nationally known the way the moon shot picks here have become virally famous for being....competent.
