Sen. Dianne Feinstein, DCalif. (Tom Williams / CQ Roll Call )
Democrat Dianne Feinstein, California's senior U.S. senator, won an easy reelection victory over nonprofit executive Elizabeth Emken, her underfunded, little-known Republican challenger.
Feinstein, 78, was running for her fourth full term against Emken, 49, an autism activist from Danville whose only previous run was a failed primary bid for a congressional seat.
