California’s top 3 Senate candidates seek edge in race for Feinstein’s old seat


The top three California Democrats running for U.S. Senate vied Sunday for the endorsement of a major health care union during a forum that underscored the similarities of their policy positions over their differences.

Reps. Barbara Lee of Oakland, Katie Porter of Irvine and Adam Schiff of Burbank fielded questions for 90 minutes from a panel of reporters and moderator Lisa Matthews, a veteran journalist and top editor at the Associated Press, on a range of topics crucial to California voters, including health care, housing, minimum wage, gas prices and term limits for appointed and elected officials.
