Feinstein running for reelection next year

CBS News

Dianne Feinstein, at 84 the oldest member of the U.S. Senate, announced Monday that she'll run for a sixth term in 2018.

California State Senate President Pro Tempore Kevin de Leon, who is rumored to be a potential primary challenger, has been critical of Feinstein in recent weeks for her comments on President Donald Trump and suggestion that new gun laws could not have prevented the Las Vegas shooting.

While Feinstein has been reelected by fairly comfortable margins, many speculated that she would retire due to her age.

"Lots more to do: ending gun violence, combating climate change, access to healthcare", Feinstein wrote.

"After 47 years in elected office and 25 years in the Senate, she continues to cling to office as a voice for the status quo", Khanna continued.

Feinstein said her narrowly-tailored proposal should be sufficient to earn bipartisan support, but so far, no Republican has signed on as a co-sponsor.

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

California's increasingly progressive political environment has left more "moderate" Democratic candidates on the defense.

The NRA, in a statement last week, called for the ATF to reevaluate bump stock devices, which increase the rate of gunfire on semi-automatic weapons and were used in the Las Vegas slaughter.

In the past week, Feinstein was vaulted once again into the national spotlight as she renewed her campaign to enact gun control legislation in the wake of the deadly shooting rampage in Las Vegas. And two prominent Latino Democrats, Secretary of State Alex Padilla and state Sen. "The fact that the establishment is rallying around her reelection shows that D.C. insiders continued to privilege protecting one of their own over the voters concerns [sic]".
