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

The oldest serving senator, Dianne Feinstein, says she will run for re-election.

"I am running for reelection to the Senate", she tweeted from a rarely used account that her office confirmed is genuine.

"There's not a gang member in Chicago, who's going 'hey I'm going to get you, but first I have to go through Dianne Feinstein's background checks.' It's nonsense", he said.

Feinstein's decision to run again probably foregoes a costly and potentially chaotic primary campaign to succeed her - although progressive Democrats in California have been clamoring for a primary challenge to her, with some in her party believing she is too moderate or accommodating to Republicans in the age of Trump.

Feinstein is the oldest US senator but among several octogenarians, including Republicans Chuck Grassley, Orrin Hatch, Richard Shelby, Jim Inhofe, Pat Roberts and John McCain. She is the top Democrat on the Senate judiciary committee.

At least one liberal journalist, Markos Moulitsas, founder of the progressive Daily Kos and co-founder of Vox Media, reached out directly to De León, an outspoken opponent of President Donald Trump who is pushing a sanctuary state law in California, offering to work together to beat "the most pro-Trump Blue-state Dem in the country [Feinstein]".

"I'm immensely proud of my service in the Senate and all I've done to help the people of California and the nation", Feinstein wrote on Facebook.

She also sparked outrage in August when she said, of President Trump, "I just hope he has the ability to learn and to change, and if he does, he can be a good president".
