Feinstein Announces Reelection Bid, Likely to Face Primary

Feinstein Announces Reelection Bid, Likely to Face Primary

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) officially declared her intention to run for reelection Monday, ending months of speculation about her future and probably avoiding what would have been an intense scramble of Golden State politics to succeed her.

"I am running for reelection to the Senate", Feinstein, who would be 85 when sworn in for another six-year term, wrote on Twitter.

Feinstein said that she hopes to end gun violence, fix climate change, and improve access to healthcare. "I'm in a position where I can be effective, and hopefully that means something to California", Feinstein said.

Feinstein said her legislation banning bump stocks had attracted "Republican interest" although the 38 co-sponsors so far were all Democrats. At 84, Feinstein is the oldest senator now serving in the chamber.

Still, Feinstein is expected to have the support of most establishment Democrats already in office, and she already has the endorsement of her fellow California Democrat in the Senate.

At least one liberal journalist, Markos Moulitsas, founder of the progressive Daily Kos and co-founder of Vox Media, reached out directly to De León, an outspoken opponent of President Donald Trump who is pushing a sanctuary state law in California, offering to work together to beat "the most pro-Trump Blue-state Dem in the country [Feinstein]". She says changing regulations aren't enough and that Congress must pass a law to ensure permanent changes. Orrin G. Hatch (R-Utah), who has served since 1977, has still not officially stated whether he plans to run again.

Asked about a poll that half of California voters don't think she should run, she added: "Oh look". If she were to win, she would be 91 by the time her term ended.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti is reportedly hosting a fundraiser for Feinstein.
