US Sen. Dianne Feinstein, 84, to run for 6th term

  • NRA's LaPierre Sen. Feinstein wants to turn gun control debate into 'Christmas tree on the Hill'

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) will run for reelection in 2018, she announced Monday morning on Twitter. She joined the Senate in 1992 after winning a special election.

"There's not a gang member in Chicago, who's going 'hey I'm going to get you, but first I have to go through Dianne Feinstein's background checks.' It's nonsense", he said.

California Democrats until recently appeared on a almost endless wait to rise in political circles - with Feinstein and fellow Democrat Barbara Boxer as the state's long-standing USA senators and fellow party member Jerry Brown serving four straight terms as governor.

Feinstein is the oldest USA senator but among several octogenarians, including Republicans Chuck Grassley, Orrin Hatch, Richard Shelby, Jim Inhofe, Pat Roberts and John McCain. The remark resulted in so much Democratic backlash that she issued a clarification about being "under no illusion" about Trump.

Feinstein said she supports DACA, but acknowledged the administration's argument that the order is on shaky legal ground.

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.

As always, please feel free to provide your own thoughts and opinions in the comment section at the end of the article. Unfortunately, it usually paid off. "I told him before the game I have absolutely zero worries about him back there".

Markos Moulitsas, the founder of the liberal Daily Kos blog, which is based in the Bay Area, said he wants to work with de Leon to "beat the most pro-Trump Blue-state Dem in the country!"

"We share a common interest in this Senate race".

Feinstein also has continuously expressed reservations about the so-called single-payer health care plan championed by many progressives, including Vermont Independent Sen.

"I strongly support Dianne's re-election campaign", Harris wrote on Facebook. Some of the Democrats now running for governor, including State Treasurer John Chiang, hadn't ruled out switching to a Senate campaign.

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