Another Reagan in California’s future?

Here’s an interesting possibility: The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Michael Reagan is considering a run against Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California.

Reagan, a former radio talk show host, is the adopted son of President Ronald Reagan and his first wife, Jane Wyman.

Among California voters, his surname may be his greatest attribute.

Yet he also has conservative creds, as founder of the Reagan Legacy Foundation and co-founder of the Presidential Coalition. After the 2008 Republican convention, he described Sarah Palin as the resurrection of the Ronald Reagan spirit.

His brother Ron Reagan, whose politics run toward the other end of the spectrum, has a much higher profile as a frequent contributor on MSNBC.

Ron Reagan manages to be respectful of his father’s legacy while maintaining liberal views. You have to wonder what he might say about a sibling candidacy against Feinstein, who voted liberal almost 64 percent of the time in 2010.
