U.S. Senate hopeful says Bay Area pols â
U.S. Senate candidate Loretta Sanchez excoriated Bay Area politicians at a Southern California campaign event over the weekend, saying “they control everything,” according to a video of her remarks captured by the Sacramento Bee. Sanchez, a Democrat representative from Orange County, was speaking with two men at a car show in Whittier, the Bee reported, when she made the case that someone from outside the San Francisco region ought to fill the seat to succeed Barbara Boxer, who’s occupied it for more than two decades alongside U.S. Senator and fellow Bay Area resident Dianne Feinstein. A Field Poll released Friday placed Sanchez at a distant second in the open seat primary contest, garnering support from 14 percent of likely voters, compared with Attorney General Kamala Harris, also a Democrat, who captured 30 percent in the 1,002-person survey, which had a 3.1 percentage point margin of error in either direction.
