16. He said he would appoint a African American woman, and would not appoint

anyone who is already in the race.

That would free him up to appoint Rep Maxine Waters; this seat would easily elect a Democrat, she would do a fine job, she would retire as a US Senator and she isn't running already.

Seriously, it would not surprise me one bit that this plan has been under the surface since Senator Feinstein became so ill. He has had a lot of time to work this out.

There will be a primary next spring and the voters will decide that outcome. I sincerely wish Katie Porter would change her mind and stay in the House since her seat is at risk now. If she were here in Texas, she could drop out of the Senate race and stay in the House race as long as she officially filed for the House race by December 1. Actually I wish Rep Lee would do so as well. We need her and her seniority in the House

He will appoint a Californian African American Woman for the interim appointment. Whether that JohnSJ Sep 2023 #1
