Senator Dianne Feinstein: I've Got Nothing to Debate With Opponent

California's new top-two election system was apparently not restricting enough of opinion for the incumbent Democrat


U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein said Wednesday that she hasn't faced off in a debate against her Republican opponent because she's heard nothing from her challenger, Elizabeth Emken, that she needed to debate.

"There's just nothing constructive coming out of their campaign," said the four-term Democratic senator following a meeting with the Register's editorial board. She added that she's been accessible to the public and the media.
