Sen. Dianne Feinstein Officially Running Again

Feinstein running for reelection next year

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) on May 23, 2017, on Capitol Hill.

"I am running for reelection to the Senate".

"Lots more to do: ending gun violence, combating climate change, access to healthcare", Feinstein wrote. "I'm all in!" Feinstein tweeted.

In the night's main event, an interim lightweight champion was crowned as The Ultimate Fighter victor Tony Ferguson took on Kevin Lee .

With the political winds seeming to shift in her favor, Ms. Feinstein said she has a bill written in "plain English" that will ban any device created to increase rates of fire. She will be seeking her fifth full term - she won a special election in 1992 to fill out the term of then-Sen. Feinstein has introduced Senate legislation to ban the sale or use of the devices.

A fierce advocate for stricter gun laws and restrictions on semiautomatic weapons, Feinstein responded to the Las Vegas shooting - the deadliest mass shooting in recent USA history - by calling for a ban on bump stocks, devices that allow some semiautomatic weapons to mimic an automatic weapon, which are illegal. 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. She said the change in gun laws must be permanent and codified by Congress, not addressed through regulations only.

As the Associated Press notes, Feinstein is now the oldest US Senator, at age 84, and she will be turning 85 in June, but she shows no signs of wanting to slow down or kick back and retire.

California's increasingly progressive political environment has left more "moderate" Democratic candidates on the defense. Some of the Democrats now running for governor, including State Treasurer John Chiang, hadn't ruled out switching to a Senate campaign.

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.

Beyond opposition from the left in the media and with some holding office, Feinstein may face problems with California voters.
