Move over, Quentin Kopp. State Senator Scott Weiner has a new challenger in his bid for reelection. Jackie Fielder, an SF State University lecturer and Democratic Socialist activist, has pulled papers to run for the Senate seat. Fielder, an organizer supporting an SF Public Bank and divestment from the Dakota Access Pipeline, states that she was inspired to run by the successful election of fellow Democratic Socialist Dean Preston in the District 5 Supervisors’ contest.
