Los Angeles anchor and reporter Christina Pascucci has launched what Politico is calling a “longshot campaign” for the late Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s Senate seat on Wednesday.
She told Politico in an exclusive interview, she’s running as a “moderate consensus builder in a field of bomb-throwing partisans.” She described herself as a “truth-seeker” who would focus on legislating, adding she would apply the same approach she did to newsgathering.
“I’ve been covering the most pressing issues of California for the past 15 years and watching this race closely, as well as covering it and interviewing some of the candidates,” Pascucci said. “And the more I watched it, the more closely I studied it, I honestly felt dismayed by how it was shaping up. I spoke to a lot of others who felt the same way. Like, this is our future — more of the same.”
