‘I think the farm industry knows I have worked very hard,’ said Feinstein on her visit to Fresno


FRESNO, Calif. — Senator Dianne Feinstein was in Fresno on Friday campaigning for the upcoming election.

Feinstein touched on a number of issues, including the need for more public options for health care and water issues in the valley. She also addressed Kavanaugh’s appointment. 

“I believe I did what was right and everyone that knows me knows i don’t leak,” said Senator Dianne Feinstein. 

Feinstein received a letter from Dr. Christine Blasey Ford about her sexual allegations against Kavanuagh.

Feinstein got the letter well before his confirmation. She has been accused of holding onto this information until the last minute to derail the Kavanaugh confirmation. 

She said that’s not the case.

“If somebody gives me information in strict confidence like that I keep it,” said Feinstein. 

There has been talk of impeaching Kavanaugh if the democrats take congress. She says she hasn’t made up her mind. 

“I haven’t said anything one way or another,” said Feinstein. 

Feinstein said California residents need better health care options. She added that a governmental insurance program that competes with the private sector could help many Californians.

When we asked her about water here in the valley, she said she is proud of a new act that has been signed into law. She said it is saved 125,000 acre feet of water and there is a half billion dollars in the bill to fund storage. 

“I think the farm industry knows i have worked very hard,” said Feinstein.
