Feinstein.JPEG–0b6daDemocratic U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, facing a little-known, underfunded Republican challenger in the Nov. 6 election, has begun airing a TV ad, her first of the political season.

The positive ad features Feinstein talking about issues at stake in this election.  She touches on a mortgage refinancing plan she has authored and says she supports "investments in research and development, education and transportation, to create good jobs."

And, she promises in the ad, "I'll always support a woman's right to choose and honor our nation's commitment to Medicare and Social Security."

The ad is airing in all the state's major media markets, said Feinstein's campaign strategist, Bill Carrick.

Feinstein was first elected to the Senate 20 years ago.  She faces autism activist Elizabeth Emken, who has raised just $718,579 to Feinstein's more than $13.7 million, according to the latest reports on file with the Federal Election Commission.
