California Sen. Dianne Feinstein to seek re-election

Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) has announced today that she will seek a sixth term in the U.S. Senate.

Feinstein's decision to run for a fifth full term sets up a 2018 Senate race that could be a cakewalk for her or could draw a strong primary challenger from the left. Lots more to do: ending gun violence, combating climate change, access to healthcare. Feinstein's social media strategy created brief confusion on Twitter, until her spokesperson confirmed the validity of the account.

As the Associated Press notes, Feinstein is now the oldest US Senator, at age 84, and she will be turning 85 in June, but she shows no signs of wanting to slow down or kick back and retire.

Feinstein, 84, is California's senior senator and the oldest US senator in office. The No. 2 Senate Republican, John Cornyn of Texas, has said he's open to legislation and that he'd spoken with Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley, who was interested in holding a hearing. "It can't be changed by another president", said Feinstein, D-Calif., a longtime advocate of stricter gun control measures.

Markos Moulitsas, the founder of the progressive blog DailyKos.com, tweeted "let's talk" at de León on Monday.

Ireland's response was to try and take as much time off the clock as possible as they wasted time at every opportunity. The Serbs face Georgia this evening and will be confident of securing their place in Russian Federation next summer.

"I'm immensely proud of my service in the Senate and all I've done to help the people of California and the nation", Feinstein wrote on Facebook.

Feinstein's old-school political sensibilities and foreign policy could be at odds with California, where increasingly young and diverse voters have demanded all-out opposition to Trump.

Seen as a moderate in San Francisco during her time as mayor, Feinstein worked to save the cable cars but angered the LGBT community by torpedoing domestic-partner legislation and declining to march in the city's Pride parade.

Asked about a poll that half of California voters don't think she should run, she added: "Oh look".
