Feinstein running for reelection next year

Feinstein running for reelection next year

Moulitsas was not the only left-leaning journalist to castigate Feinstein on Twitter shortly after she announced her 2018 Senate bid.

"I am running for reelection to the Senate".

"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.

Gun control has been a top priority of Feinstein since she was elected to the Senate in 1992 - an issue which has come to the forefront of political discussion in the United States following the deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas earlier this month.

The 84-year-old's announcement comes at a moment of soul searching for the Democratic Party, after the GOP swept both chambers of Congress and won the presidential election in November.

The veteran Democrat had dodged questions about whether she would seek a fifth term, leaving her party in the nation's most populous state in limbo about whether to start grooming a possible replacement.

Markos Moulitsas, the founder of the progressive blog DailyKos.com, tweeted "let's talk" at de León on Monday. Adam B. Schiff, Eric Swalwell and Brad Sherman, were said to be preparing for a Senate campaign if Feinstein opted to retire. "Let's beat the most pro-Trump Blue-state Dem in the country!" He did not, however, make clear his own plans.

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. "We are better off with her leadership and I look forward to continuing to fight together for California in the Senate". Kamala Harris and a rising star among liberals, quickly endorsed Feinstein in a Facebook post.
