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

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

Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., has turned the debate after the horrific massacre in Las Vegas by shooter Stephen Paddock "into a Christmas tree on the Hill".

But in a sign that Feinstein still has plenty of sway among the state's liberal power brokers, Kamala Harris, California's junior senator and a favorite among progressives, quickly and enthusiastically endorsed her bid. Lots more to do: "ending gun violence, combating climate change, access to healthcare. said: "“I am running for reelection to the Senate". Feinstein's press secretary and communications director confirmed to TPM that Feinstein is running for re-election.

Ms. Feinstein is already 84 years of age and the oldest senator in Congress. She will be seeking her fifth full term - she won a special election in 1992 to fill out the term of then-Sen.

The National Rifle Association's CEO on Sunday called on the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives to "do its job" - and rebuked calls for more gun laws in the wake of the nation's worst mass shooting. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., said that if Republicans were willing to pass a bill banning bump stock devices - like those used by the Las Vegas hotel sniper - he would support the legislation, even if it was not accompanied by any other restrictions of weapons purchases. "I stand with her", he said. Congressional Republicans and President Trump have, however, called for a review of federal policy that now permits bump stocks.

Ahead of her decision, several House Democrats from California, including Reps. One top Democratic strategist pointed out on Monday that Feinstein's approval ratings among independents and Democrats in California remain strong.

Fewer than half of Californians say they want Feinstein to run for reelection, according to a poll released by the Public Policy Institute of California in September. And most of the elected Democrats in the state are expected to back Feinstein. Sen. Kevin de Leon, who is term-limited as the Senate president pro tempore, are also known to be angling for higher office.
