Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the San Francisco Democrat, is our choice in 
Tuesday's race for U.S. Senate.

She has served the state well in her past six-year term. Feinstein has had 
the backing of law enforcement groups for her anti-crime efforts and paying 
attention to the needs of police and sheriff's departments. She recently 
made points for supporting the assignment of Drug Enforcement 
Administration agents in Redding.

These agents will help crack down on the methamphetamine trade, a problem 
that has reached epidemic proportions in the north state. She has a better 
understanding of the drug problem than most politicians after having 
authored the Comprehensive Methamphetamine Control Act of 1996.

Feinstein, along with Rep. Wally Herger, did an admirable job in their 
support of the Quincy Library Group. This effort brought local 
environmentalists and timber representatives together for a plan to manage 
parts of the Lassen, Plumas and Tahoe national forests.

We support Feinstein in her bid for re-election.
