A Field Poll released last week found Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) is not immune to voter discontent with Congress and is now saddled with a 41 percent approval rating.
On top of that, Feinsteinís $5 million war chest might have been depleted as part of an alleged embezzlement by a prominent Democratic campaign treasurer, and one Republican with a famous last name could be stepping forward to take her on.
Itís not just any ďReagan RepublicanĒ looking to take her on ó itís Michael Reagan, a former conservative radio talk-show host and son of President Ronald Reagan. Reagan told the San Francisco Chronicle heís considering a bid.
Still, the stateís demographics and recent voting history are on Feinsteinís side: California hasnít elected a Republican to the Senate since 1988, and Sen. Barbara Boxer (D) won re-election by 10 points last year in a strong cycle for Republicans nationwide.
