Dianne Feinstein, oldest U.S. senator, announces reelection bid

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) announced Monday that she is running for reelection for the California Senate seat she has held since 1992.

Feinstein also announced the run on Twitter, using an unverified account that remained dormant since 2013.

Furthermore, Feinstein is 84, and running for reelection means that numerous younger Democratic talents in California may not have a clear opportunity to rise through the ranks. "It can't be changed by another president", said Feinstein, D-Calif., a longtime advocate of stricter gun control measures.

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.

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.

The mere implication that Trump could be a "good president" drew the ire of state Senate president Kevin de León, whose recent two-day trip to Washington was seen as laying the groundwork for a potential Senate run. One top Democratic strategist pointed out on Monday that Feinstein's approval ratings among independents and Democrats in California remain strong. "Let's beat the most pro-Trump Blue-state Dem in the country!" He did not, however, make clear his own plans.

"I strongly support Dianne's reelection campaign, and am thankful she is again offering to serve our state", Harris said. "What Californians get from Dianne is someone who sticks to her principles and achieves results regardless of powerful opponents, from the assault weapons ban to the Central Intelligence Agency torture report".

"Her policies are completely out of touch with California Democrats, and we think she'd be more at home in a Republican primary", said Corbin Trent, a member of the group.

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