We tried all day yesterday to reach California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein to ask her to join us for our next segment. Unfortunately she will not be joining us. But we are joined by two people who are challenging her for her Senate seat.

Guests:

  • Medea Benjamin, the Green Party Candidate for the US Senate in California. She is also a founder of the human rights group Global Exchange.
  • Rep. Tom Campbell, is a Republican Congress member from California who is challenging Dianne Feinstein for her Senate seat.
