Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California broke her ankle and will skip next week's Democratic National Convention in Denver, she announced.

Feinstein, one of Hillary Rodham Clinton's top supporters, was to have chaired the state's delegation. Now, state party chairman Art Torres will do so, the party said.

The senator slipped and broke her ankle Friday while walking in a Lake Tahoe forest, she said in a statement.
