Alex Padilla to become California's first Latino senator, replacing Harris

"Going. Secretary Alex Padilla now heads to Washington, D C. To replace Vice President elect Kamila Harris and become California's first Latino senator. Questions still remain over how Padilla will be received in D. C. And for more, we turn now to the KCBS Ring Central news Line and talk with Christopher. Cattle. Lago National political reporter at Political Good to have you with us, Christopher Nice to be here. Thank you. So, how much pressure do you think the governor was under to appoint a Latino to replace Kamila Harris? I think he was under huge pressure. Just generally. He he was replacing a multiracial woman, and Kamila Harris, a black woman. And there was a lot of groups out there who felt that not only should he replace Harris with a woman but a black woman in particular because she was the only black woman in the U. S Senate, and that number will not go from 1 to 0. But there was also tremendous pressure. Even before Harris ran, you'll remember in 20. 15 when she started her campaign to replace Barbara Boxer for the state to elect its first Latino senator, Um, back then, there were calls for folks like former L. A Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to run even the happier for Sarah, who by now nominated to be the Health and human services director to potentially run Kevin De Leone ended up running against Dianne Feinstein and 2018 and lost in the other Senate seat. So there was a lot of competing pressure for Gavin Newsom and what we saw yesterday. Clearly there was no accident in him almost packaging these two Thies two appointments together, which you saw for the U. S. Senate and Alex Padilla and then surely Weber. To replace Padilla as secretary of state, a state wide position. Surely Weber is chair of the Black caucus in the state and also Was a long time professor PhD from San Diego State who's done a lot of focus on police reform another racial justice issues in the state, so You know, do some. I know people talk for weeks and weeks about appointing Padilla. He was He was kind of the obvious pick someone who is allied with new some years ago, but he waited clearly so he could make these two um, appointments in tandem s so that people could see kind of the full context of both of them and not just look at one of the other. What? What about the comments from San Francisco Mayor London Braid. Initially she called this a real blow to the African American community. You think she was angry at video? She angry Governor Newsome. Yeah. Both. I think she speaks for folks both in the state and nationally who Who really did genuinely want to see that seat. Uh um, uh, C representation. Um, of Ah, Black woman like common. Harris continue in that Senate seat. There. Also a lot of people as I mentioned who wanted to see a woman in that seat. Um and I think She? It's complex. She does reflect some of the groups out there some of the people out there even some of the people who are praising kind of the tandem. Nature of these pics were disappointed, maybe not in such sharp terms of London Bridge, But groups and other folks out there were disappointed that Newsome did not appoint a black woman to serve in the Senate. Well, this all got announced and Harris is term expires in two years, and Padilla has already launched a Senate campaign account asking for donations. So it appears that He wants to stick around for a while, and he's already raising money. Yeah, The thing that we know about the Senate races these days and really any races, you have to capitalize on the 1st 2024 hours 48 hours first week when people are paying attention, the senior name in the news These races in California don't typically command a kind of TV time. And so he's trying to get a raise as much money as you can. And in the short period, the short window where folks are really tuning in. And we've seen comments. And I know you didn't mention this but from folks like Ro Khanna Progressive, who was the national co chaired for Bernie Sanders, who are expressing disappointment, not not in, uh in the in Padilla. On the fact that he's a Latino, which they celebrate, but in the fact that they think that his politics or to moderate and that's just that he's got to raise a lot of money because he could he could certainly face eh Progressive challenger in two years in the state, and you know he'll only have two years to really make his mark and get his name out there before before his challenge.

Right and one more thing speaking of Republicans, you know, you saw a one of our favorite San Francisco Republicans, actually, Oakland, Republican, Sean Walsh, former advisor to former Governor Pete Wilson in the audience, and you know, what what what do Republicans do in this race? The polls say that fifty two percent of Republicans and twenty six percent of independence, many of them. Obviously probably former Republicans don't plan to even vote in this race. What did they see anything here today? Well, it the the one thing they might have seen maybe being a little afraid of Kevin daily own. Now seeing that he is fairly far left a of Dianne Feinstein. I can't. Imagine that he's going to get many Republican votes. She will get some because first of all lot of Republicans have voted for in the past. And one thing we know in politics is the best predictor of how you're going to vote in the next elections. How you voted in the last election? What you vote for somebody? You're more prone to vote for them in the future. But I think Republicans are shutout and frustrated in this US Senate it's going to be interesting with what we have this year. There's going to be a renewed push to maybe get rid of the top two because I know neither party particularly likes hate. It hate they hate the top both parties hit the top two.

"She would be ninety one years old. So the question becomes not only in terms of fitness for office, which I think today, she clearly showed her capability. I mean, she still still under game. That's not. That's not an issue. This was not Reagan Mondale nineteen Eighty-four debate one were where people were wincing Ronald Reagan. She did fine. But there are questions about the succession if. She is she really in it for the full six years or she thinking that she's going to go to three years, maybe at the most. And then have you know, a governor presumably governor news, some making appointment that chain or governor Cox or governor Cox that she would obviously want. How I have a feeling though, Joe there's a governor Cox. She will probably hang in there. Just just prediction so Ginsburg. But but let me tell you what we wrote about that no toil and that is and I'm quoting on the inescapable issue in this race. That was not raised wreck age the eighty five year old pine sign effectively diffused any questions about her current fitness with her performance. I think I think, you know, daily own clearly, you're right. He had all the code words. New leadership pains what you did that cartwheel out onto the stage that really nobody saw it. So this debate. So we can say that we could. Sorta make stuff up and what you know the difference. I think the failures repeated use of the term senior Senator senior center out maybe not so much out of respect the accurate relation technically accurate. Finally made a bit of news today. Also when she said that she would favor. Reopening the senate's investigation into Christine, Boise. Bazi Ford's charges should Democrats retake the Senate. Of course, that's a big claws. There should Democrats take the Senate the other day Pelosi told us in the to'real board that that the party would resist any effort to sort of impeach cavenaugh. So what did you make half? The do. I what I made that Joe is the difference between the where PLO sees out with the US house in where Diane Feinstein is with the US Senate. First of all, I think Pelosi was thinking about what San Francisco at think if she said that, but what that would do certainly Trump and the Republicans. Well, if the if the Democrats take the house, they're going to try and impeach the president and peach Cavanaugh, and I don't think Pelosi was I think she was very wise not the hand that issue to them. Diane Feinstein's much safer place. Although the interesting thing there, Joe is when she mentioned that she would be open to reopen investigations what's part too? If you know is is impeachment potentially on the table for this new supreme court Justice. She there again, that's where the format was kinda limited. Right. She answered that question afterwards in she described. She came up and talked to reporters for about five or seven minutes afterwards. And we asked her that. And she said that no she was not comment on that. Because in an impeachment situation. The the Senate is the jury the house brings the charges and the Senate votes on those. So she would not want to prejudice that now before seeing any charges, and so again, she takes the 'institutionalised role in that. That's whereas whereas daily owners like I would I would have beach him without you know, there's not even any charges not even a house that's favorable to that. But again the difference between the.

You know, where she has sided with big agriculture interests. And and really drawn the ire of environmentalist that would have been a great opportunity for daily owned to to jump in. And and just having. Britain some at Tores about that over the years. I know it's also an issue that Feinstein very touchy about guess, she's very touching. And she's also an especially when he portrays himself as the hero to environmentalism here in California. And he has led some done some great legislation on that, you know, in terms of the you know that characterize the store in the chronicle. They'll come out sooner probably already is. You know, sort of the activists versus the 'institutionalised and Feinstein's quote here kind of kind of summarize her position, she said sure, you can protest, and we do, but they the Republicans move the majority regardless partisanship has become so calcified. She said that it's quote, it's like hitting your head against the concrete wall. You can March you can filibuster. You can talk all night. It doesn't change. Anything changes things are elections. And that's kind of that's a very realistic view of the role of Democrats in Washington where they are them inority from someone who's been there. Twenty five years in even in a divided government. It's difficult and even in all democratic government. Remember Dianne Feinstein talked about immigration reform. There was a time when the Democrats had the presidency in both houses, and they did not get immigration reform done. These are difficult issues in especially in the US Senate, which is very process oriented. By nature by by design by the founders, it's very much supposed to be delivered. If you know the place where you slow down things against the populist sentiment of the the day. And I think Feinstein really is ingrained with that. I think daily own you was trying to make the pitch that I can overcome this. But we shouldn't say it today. There were no direct digs at defies age. But there were certainly some. Basically thinly disguised ones time for a new generation. We things along those lines. What did you think about that? That was up to vague for people or was that did he play right, or what did you think? Why think daily own had no choice, but to play that very cautiously. I would say this about the age issue though, Joe is I talked to Democrats even Democrats are inclined to support Dianne Feinstein.

An educational check it out opinion central on apple podcast or wherever you obtain your podcasts. John D S. Welcome back to a very special post Senate debate edition of it's all political always a pleasure Joe. And we have breaking news from the ivory tower. You have already written. You're at a total declaring a winner. Today's Senate to be we have declared a winner. Joe, I think it was tie-in Feinstein clearly won this debate. She. Accomplished everything that she needed to accomplish. Kevin de Leon accomplish nothing. What he knew accomplish to change the dynamic of this race. It is hers to lose. And so what was that sort of a it was not a technical knockout? Or even a knockout by anyone? But it was a how did how did she win this debate? Well, I think she if nothing else by Feinstein won by not losing Kevin daily on the burden was on him to make the case that either he could be in a policy way much different than her or somehow more effective. And that the second was a very tall. Order to go in and say, okay, I'm I'm going to be more effective than a US Senator who's been there since nineteen Ninety-two knows her way around is risen epi- nerdy. She's the ranking democrat on that you'd issue committee. I just didn't see it where what's what's most striking to me was you know, for a year. It's literally been a year since he declared his candidacy, and he said, you know, he goes at Feinstein for being.

Well, I think she if nothing else by Feinstein won by not losing. Kevin daily on the burden was on him to make the case that either he could be in a policy way much different than her or somehow more effective. And that the second was a very tall.

"Muller puts you in this indictment although i you know there's there's some things that go on that are a better pretty shady but my point is since it's our proud boast that it's part of what america is all about to promote our values throughout the world i think it's a very dangerous road to go down to say that this kind of information promotion to the extent of the facts the politics and elections with other countries is now in indictable felony or is it seems to me that that at the the kind of thing that by us more than it's going to bite the russian diane feinstein has been a senator from california 26 something shocking habits to the fouryearold liberal the stance leaked she was unable to garner the support of her own democratic party in california pete peterson is the dean of the pepperdine university graduate school of public policy he explained how this happened on the hugh hewitt show now give me your to send some what it means people wake up today and there will find that the california democrat party did not endorse diane feinstein for reelection instead endorsed the hyper liberal kevin de leon what did you make of that well it's what i what i call the earnest preclusion only democratic party that started in two thousand fifteen and there are a lot of uh burning flows out he'll uh especially in southern california though that uh really thought that they were flight it uh back in two thousand sixteen of that we've they're taking over the elf on the democratic party do you think that diane feinstein could actually lose that primary one certainly.

"In just a minute about an inmate that is on the loose in southern california and it's a really interesting story about how that all transpired but before i do that let's i just want to reflect the moment 'cause we just had congressman tom mcclintock on a republican member of congress and we were talking about the republican party and all the turmoil and if you turn on the tv if you were to turn on cnn today for example the headlines would be republicans trying to play nice after their civil the war and this is the constant narrative that republicans with all the levers of power in washington c aren't able to get anything done their fighting with themselves it's a it's a free for all back there and it's interesting because what you're seeing is you're seeing democrats saying this is our opportunity to take back the house this is our opportunity to take back the senate although i would argue there also so a civil war brewing in the democratic party because we now know for a fact and we were talking about this early almost before anyone else last week the senate majority leader of the state senate in california democrat kevin de leon was last week considering challenging incumbent senator dianne feinstein for her seat next year but it is can firm that he is in fact running one hundred percent four diane feinstein seats you have a more moderate to some democratic senator and incumbent dianne feinstein who is going to be taking a challenge from the left of the democratic party and kevin de leon who will also be well funded and also put up a good fight and so you're seeing this in both parties you're seeing of bifurcation of both parties were one wing the conservative wing of the republican party wants certain things in the moderate more establishment wing doesn't and in on the on the other side of the aisle you're seeing democrats were with their more moderate members being challenged by more progressive members so both parties are are signalling a civil war but it's really interesting so i'm keeping track of i'm gonna try to give a report back to all of our listeners every week on what's happening particularly with these races in southern california in one of.
