Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) 87, won’t be up for re-election until 2024 and she has already hinted about running for re-election again. She will be 91 when her term ends.
The L.A. Magazine reported that senior Senator from California has filed her initial plans for re-election in 2024 to the Federal Election Commission. She will be 91 when her term is over, and if she does end up running again and winning she will be 97 when that term expires.
According to the Daily Wire, a Feinstein rep reached out to the L.A. Magazine to clarify the FEC filing and how they interpret it. “To be clear, Senator Feinstein has had a campaign committee since she took office, as all senators must. In order to keep this account active, the senator has to maintain filings with the FEC. Yesterday’s filings merely reflected an updated address,” the rep also announced that they have not officially announced the senators plans to run again in 2024.
There have also been speculative reports from the SF Gate that Feinstein is suffering from “cognitive decline”
For instance, when Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) allegedly had asked Feinstein to step down from her role as the top Democrat in the Senate Judiciary Committee because she had forgotten the first conversation that they had according to the New Yorker.
She also faced criticism over her mental state after the way she handled the confirmation hearings for Justice Amy Coney Barrett, the first was in 2017 when she was a nominee for the appeals-court when she questioned Barrett’s Catholic faith saying that “the dogma lives loudly within you, and that’s a concern”.
