Mayor Eric Garcetti is hosting a fundraiser for Sen. Dianne Feinstein, and says the senior senator's stature is needed in Washington more than ever before.
“Senator Feinstein is not just principled, she is powerful,” Garcetti wrote in an invitation to the fundraiser, which he is cohosting with his wife, Amy Wakeland. “In this topsy-turvy world of the Trump administration, we need her seniority and her experience now, more than ever.”
Feinstein, first elected to the Senate a quarter-century ago, has not yet announced her 2018 plans. She is facing some criticism among some liberals that she is not progressive enough to represent California.
