Los Angeles Times-
Seven weeks ahead of their November showdown, state Sen. Kevin de León on Tuesday released a campaign video slamming U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein over past statements on one of the most heated topics in California politics: immigration.
The nearly three-minute biographical ad begins with a narration by de León, who was raised by a single mother who immigrated to California illegally from Guatemala. It shows a young de León accompanying his mother to homes she cleaned as he grew up. Both characters are played by actors. De León’s mother, Carmen Osorio, died in 1994.
