California has a jungle primary system

candidates for senator and representative all battle it out during the primaries for the respective seats. The top two in each contest go on to the finals in November. AFAIK, a person can only run in one primary race at a time. So this would effectively mean that anyone running for senate would have to give up their house seat.

But the proposition that put this in place was spearheaded by Republicans, so who knows.

Of course, if Feinstein were to step down sometime this year the current governor could appoint someone to the senate seat.

The Jeremiah O'Brien sailed to France in 1994

for the D-Day anniversary, with IIRC some of the original crew (or at least original Liberty Ship crew members), along with some young whippersnappers to help with the manual labor. The old-timers held their own, even in the engine rooms.

I'm glad it was saved: I think it's the only one still afloat. I've been on it when the engines were running: I can't imagine sailing across an ocean in it.
