Feinstein Announces Reelection Bid, Likely to Face Primary

May JohnsonOct 10, 2017

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

Moulitsas was not the only left-leaning journalist to castigate Feinstein on Twitter shortly after she announced her 2018 Senate bid. Lots more to do: ending gun violence, combating climate change, access to healthcare.

California Democrats have been anxiously circling Feinstein's seat, hoping she would create an opening for them by retiring.

With Feinstein in, the question becomes whether anyone else challenges her, the likeliest being de León, who is termed out of the state Senate and has questioned her calls for patience with President Donald Trump.

"Dianne's career has been one of firsts - she was the first woman President of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, the first woman mayor of San Francisco, the first woman elected Senator of California, and the first woman member of the Senate Judiciary Committee", the statement says.

Microsoft roundup: VR acquisition, Halo: Recruit launch date, new Samsung headset
A company spokesperson appeared, in virtual reality , at Microsoft's special Mixed Reality event in San Francisco this morning. Additionally, Microsoft is teaming with Steam to bring VR games to Windows Mixed Reality headsets by the holidays.

"From my perspective, I think Feinstein probably wins". Adam B. Schiff, Eric Swalwell and Brad Sherman, were said to be preparing for a Senate campaign if Feinstein opted to retire.

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.

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 reelection campaign, and am thankful she is again offering to serve our state", Harris said.

According to the Los Angeles Times, Garcetti wrote, "In this topsy-turvy world of the Trump administration, we need her seniority and her experience now, more than ever", in an invitation to the fundraiser, which he is co-hosting with his wife, Amy Wakeland. Kamala Harris and a rising star among liberals, quickly endorsed Feinstein in a Facebook post.
