Sen. Dianne Feinstein didn't receive the California Democratic Party's endorsement last night. It takes 60% of the vote to be endorsed, and she only got 37%.

Why it matters: Feinstein has represented California in Congress since 1992. And though her lack of an endorsement doesn't mean she can't win the election, it's a clear sign that many voters, at least in California, want a fresh face and a more progressive senator.
