Dianne Feinstein to Seek Sixth Senate Term Amid Criticism From Left

Feinstein 'We need a law' on bump stocks

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. Feinstein's social media strategy created brief confusion on Twitter, until her spokesperson confirmed the validity of the account.

Critics say Feinstein is staying on as a leader when her policies come from a previous time in the Democratic Party.

At 84, she is the oldest current member of the Senate; she would be 91 if she won next year and finished out another six-year term. The No. 2 Senate Republican, John Cornyn of Texas, has said he's open to legislation and that he'd spoken with Judiciary Committee Chuck Grassley, who was interested in holding a hearing.

Feinstein said she supports DACA, but acknowledged the administration's argument that the order is on shaky legal ground.

Markos Moulitsas, the founder of the liberal Daily Kos blog, which is based in the Bay Area, said he wants to work with de Leon to "beat the most pro-Trump Blue-state Dem in the country!"

Feinstein is one of eight octogenarians in the US Senate.

In a series of tweets posted after the announcement on Monday, Sanberg sought to make the case that Feinstein had been too deferential to Trump, and that with deep-blue California " leading the resistance" on the state level, "we need representatives willing to do the same in D.C". The progressive group CREDO recently confronted Feinstein in her office to urge her to block Trump's judicial nominees.

Feinstein also has continuously expressed reservations about the so-called single-payer health care plan championed by many progressives, including Vermont Independent Sen.

I am running for reelection to the Senate. "She's an institution, and has a formidable political operation that's been around forever", the strategist told me.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti is reportedly hosting a fundraiser for Feinstein.
