Republican Elizabeth Emken to run against Sen. Dianne Feinstein
SacBee: Capitol Alert ^ | 11/28/11 | Torey Van Oot

With less than a year to go until the November 2012 election, a GOP challenger to Democratic U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein has emerged.

Elizabeth Emken, a longtime advocate for children with autism and 2010 congressional candidate, has decided to run against the incumbent Democrat next year, announcing her candidacy on her campaign website and the conservative blog

"She's definitely in and we're putting together the campaign now," campaign consultant Tim Clark said in an interview Monday.

Emken, 48, most recently served as vice president of governmental relations for Autism Speaks, a national nonprofit organization that bills itself as the cause's largest U.S. advocacy group. The Danville Republican, whose 19-year-old son is autistic, previously worked as a legislative consultant and board member for Cure Autism Now, another nonprofit advocacy group that merged with Autism Speaks in 2007. Clark said she also worked in what he called an "efficiency manager" role for IBM Corporation.

"I'm running for U.S. Senate because my children need me to," Emken, who Clark declined to make available for an interview, wrote in a guest post on FlashReport, which first reported the news of her bid. "The massive government debt, the lack of resolve to control spending, and excessive government regulation threaten to fundamentally change the American way of life. I'm not going to let that happen, at least not without a fight."

...And Peter McNeeley fought against Mike Tyson.

Point is, Feinstein is one of the Sainted Ones in the, it`s CA. They wouldn`t even turn out the repugnant Barbara Boxer in 2010.

We have some of the most corrupt government politicians in history.
Multi millionaire (+$40 million, est) Dianne Feinstein must be defeated in the upcoming election. All elected scum balls need to be given the boot and repay us for their evil deeds.
We should protest these people, not businesses. Time to wake-up!

Another protester is considering running against Feinstein, need to check her out....
Queen of the birthers ORLY TAITZ!

My late, great trout fishing partner told me
he dated Feinkenstein a couple of times back
in HS days.He went to Lowell HS and she went to
an all girl catholic school. They headed in dif-
ferent political directions for sure. Can’t re-
call her maiden name but if I gave two dead flies
I’m sure I could nail it on Wiki.

Haven’t heard of this gal running against her but
bigger, tougher, wealthier names have tried to
dethrone Lady Di without success. No reason to
think this effort will be any different.

me has a belief that Elizabeth Emken,
has NO chance of undoing the damage to our country that Dianne Feinstein has foisted on our country.
