Dems Disagree on Anti-Recall Strategy, Some Want Feinstein to Run

Sponsored by:

Two California Democrats are urging Senator Dianne Feinstein to run to replace Governor Davis in the recall election. Congressman Cal Dooley of Hanford and Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez of Garden Grove say Democrats need to have an alternative to Davis on the October 7 ballot.

Both lawmakers have pronounced Feinstein the state´s most popular politician. Dooley says he seriously doubts Davis can survive the recall effort.

The lawmakers´ comments came as San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown convened a meeting of leading Democratic strategists to discuss how to defeat the recall. Keeping major Democrats off the ballot is their top goal because Davis allies believe that would give the governor a better chance of survival.

The deadline for getting on the ballot is August 9.
