Silicon Valley Rep. Ro Khanna has endorsed Senate leader Kevin de León's bid for Senate over Sen. Dianne Feinstein, according to De León's campaign.
His endorsement of the challenger isn't unexpected. Khanna had encouraged a challenge to Feinstien as she seeks a fifth full term in the Senate, but it hadn't been clear whether Khanna would support de León or Alison Hartson, who is backed by the progressive group Justice Democrats. Khanna is a member of the group.
Khanna won his seat in 2016 by challenging an incumbent Democrat and has urged others to do the same, saying “I just think that renewal is good for democracy.”
