Rep. Adam Schiff, the Democratic front-runner for the late Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) seat, made an $11.2 million gamble to box out his chief Democratic rival by elevating a GOP contender, Steve Garvey who also happens to be a baseball legend with a problematic past and no political experience.

There have been accusations of dirty politics, calls for donor purity tests, and strategy sessions that could hurt down-ballot Democrats and see a Republican walk away with a win in the costly and crowded California contest.

Schiff and his allies have shelled out millions of dollars to bring attention to Garvey in an attempt to avoid facing Porter in a general election matchup in November.

Adam Schiff and his allies made an  unusual gambit: spending a staggering $11.2 million elevating a Republican rival in hopes of boxing out his main intraparty opponent from the November ballot.

And it worked!

Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff and Republican Steve Garvey have advanced to the general election in the open primary for California’s open Senate seat, setting up an uphill battle for the state’s beleaguered GOP.
