Feinstein Likely to Run for Reelection: 'Ready for a Good Fight'

Furthermore, Feinstein is 84, and running for reelection means that numerous younger Democratic talents in California may not have a clear opportunity to rise through the ranks.

Progressives are purportedly frustrated enough about her views on President Trump, DACA and single-payer health care to mount a challenge for her seat.

The announcement that Feinstein would run was first tweeted Monday by an unverified Twitter account affiliated with Feinstein.

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. "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]". Some of the Democrats now running for governor, including State Treasurer John Chiang, hadn't ruled out switching to a Senate campaign. "I stand with her", he said.

Garcetti has repeatedly praised the work of Feinstein, saying he hoped she would run again. She is also a senior member of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence and was the first woman to lead that panel, from 2009 through 2015.

A Public Policy Institute of California survey released late last month found that roughly half of voters believe Feinstein shouldn't seek another term.

The 84-year-old Feinstein has, until this week, deflected questions about seeking a full fifth term, telling NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday: "I'm in a position where I can be effective".

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.
