Feinstein, who is her party’s establishment favorite, walked away with 44 percent of the vote, while de Leon trailed at roughly 11 percent, and Republican James Bradley garnered nearly 9 percent of the vote in the heavily Democratic state. Six percent of the state’s precincts had yet to report. 

Bradley has never held elected office and raised less than $5,000 in the run-up to the primary. 

De Leon, however, said he still feels good about the results. 

“We decided to give voters a real choice — between new ideas and the same old, same old,” de Leon told supporters, according to The Associated Press, adding “this race is a fight for California’s future.”

A Senate race between Feinstein and de Leon would not be the first time two Democrats faced off for a seat in California.
