    California voters made history on Tuesday in the race for the U.S. Senate, sending two Democrats to a November runoff and denying a Republican a spot on the fall ballot for the first time since the stateís first direct election of senators in 1914. State Atty. Gen. Kamala Harris won the largest share of the vote and the title of winner in the primary. By the end of the night, Harris led Orange County Rep. Loretta Sanchez by more than 800,000 votes, a margin of 23 percentage points.

Californiaís open primary sends the top two vote-getters to the November ballot regardless of party affiliation.

    California Democratic Rep. Loretta Sanchez claimed that "multiautomatic round weapons are easily available, even though not in California." Appearing on MSNBC Live with Tamron Hall on Thursday, Sanchez made up a term to describe a gun while blasting congressional inaction. "The reality is that Congress has been trying to get up some of these issues [relating to mental health] for the last five years, and we haven't been able to," she said. "We let the assault weapons ban, which was led by our senator Dianne Feinstein, we let that lapse. So you know, multiautomatic round weapons are easily available, even...

The Eagles signed Tebow on Monday. He hasn't played in the NFL since getting cut by the Patriots at the end of training camp prior to the 2013 season.

Worse: Feinstein said she and her campaign staff have been unable to access all their bank records at this point because Durkee alone controlled access to the account, which has made it difficult for them to assess how much money is gone. Two other similarly dissatisfied clients are California Democratic Reps. Susan Davis, who called Durkee "the Bernie Madoff of campaign...

    Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has tapped Rep. Linda Sanchez (D-Calif.) as the new ranking member on the House Ethics Committee. Sanchez replaces Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-Calif.) who left the top Democratic slot after a turbulent tenure as chairwoman. Lofgren agreed to serve temporarily until Democrats could find a successor but had asked to step down as soon as possible. Sanchez, who became known for her tenacity while chairing a Judiciary subcommittee, is a fellow Californian and loyal supporter of Pelosiís. She will serve opposite Rep. Jo Bonner (R-Ala.), the top Republican on the panel for the last two years....

Loretta Sanchez (D) is smelly: Assemb. Van Tran (R) "is sending out a scratch-and-sniff direct mail piece attacking" Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D) "that features a hideous odor emanating from it." The mailer: "Open for a fragrance sample of 'Loretta, The Scent Of Washington.'" The mailer, on the inside: "Something smells rotten about Loretta. It's the stench of Washington." "Below that is...

    Detroit, Mich.: How has the last couple of weeks changed you? Rick Sanchez: Thank you for the question. It has made me understand that words matter, even more so than what I thought. These are very tough times for me and my family. It's very painful to go through what I'm going through and I wake up at night seemingly anxiety-ridden over prospects for my future. But I know in my heart that I am not the person who some are describing or perceiving. I simply made a mistake which I now must atone for. I will say this. My...

    Rep. Loretta Sanchez (D-CA) is a busy lady. When she isn't appearing on Univision to warn Hispanic viewers about a nefarious "Vietnamese" scheme to "take away" her House seat (her Republican opponent, Van Tran, is of Vietnamese provenance), she's bragging to audiences about her "unwritten power" to impede construction of a fence along our southern border--which she compares to the Berlin wall: The clip featured in the ad, which was apparently produced by a Tran supporter (not the campaign), comes from a speech Sanchez delivered in 2008.

    In his opening monologue, Stewart asked people to make a donation to help autism education but added a caveat: "If you went on radio and said the Jews control the mediaÖyou may want to hold on to your money," according to the Hollywood Reporter. But, the fun didn't stop there. Stewart went on to say that if Sanchez's comments about Jewish people were accurate, "All he has to do is apologize to us, and we'll hire him back." In his ill-advised radio remarks, Sanchez labeled Stewart a "bigot" and snarkily claimed Jewish people ran "all the other networks." CNN quickly...

    No, not the anti-Semitic part, no word of which deserves defending. But there is a sad, circular pattern to the bigotry that Sanchez obviously experienced and was scarred by, embittered to the point that even as a successful cable anchor, it escaped his lips one day and blew up his career. That's why racism, and every form of discrimination, is so insidious: It can make you crazy, and is very, very hard to make a clean break from. *Photo* For those who missed the story, Sanchez was fired from CNN on Friday after an Oh-My-Lord Sirius/XM radio interview in which...
