#California #Democrats frustrated because #Feinstein just won’t go away

She just won’t go away.

Feinstein’s office continues to say she hasn’t made a decision yet. Politically, it would be foolish to pull the rip cord before the last possible minute, as she would be dismissed as a lame duck.

She continues to hold fundraisers and had a modest $3.1 million cash on hand through March in her campaign account, according to federal records.

Funding a campaign shouldn’t be a problem, as Feinstein is one of the wealthiest members of Congress with a net worth of at least $49 million, according to the nonpartisan Center for Responsive Politics.

While her absence at last weekend’s California Democratic Party convention wasn’t surprising — like campaign debates and town halls, Feinstein rarely attends — it allowed 3,000 of the party’s delegates, officeholders and grassroots activists to size up her possible successors.
