WHOA: A Longtime Democrat Senator Has Announced They Hanging It Up…

Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein on Tuesday announced that she will not seek a sixth term in office and will retire from the Senate at the end of 2024, officially creating a primary battle to replace the trailblazing senator.

The 89-year-old California senator’s decision to retire at the end of her term in 2024 mostly confirmed assumptions both nationally and back home. In fact, the main question on the minds of candidates was whether she would make it to the end before stepping aside. She insists she will.

“I am announcing today I will not run for reelection in 2024 but intend to accomplish as much for California as I can through the end of next year when my term ends,” she said in a statement. “Even with a divided Congress, we can still pass bills that will improve lives. Each of us was sent here to solve problems. That’s what I’ve done for the last 30 years, and that’s what I plan to do for the next two years. My thanks to the people of California for allowing me to serve them.”

Will she even survive her last term? There has been reports that her cognitive decline is so bad that she recently became angry with staffers who were trying to debrief her on the stopgap funding bill. “I don’t even know what that is,” Feinstein said to her staffers of the stopgap funding bill last year.

The Democrat senator is already been in bad shape since last year as reported by the San Francisco Chronicle. Infact, her Democrat colleagues want her to retire before her term expires at the end of 2024. Democrat Reps. Katie Porter and Adam Schiff have both announced they are running for Feinstein’s senate seat.

Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., will retire from Congress at the end of 2024 after three decades in the Senate and over 50 years in public office, she announced in a statement Tuesday.

“I am announcing today I will not run for reelection in 2024 but intend to accomplish as much for California as I can through the end of next year when my term ends,” Feinstein said.

Feinstein, 89, is currently the oldest sitting member of the upper chamber and the longest-serving senator from her state, first elected to the Senate in 1992.

A number of House Democrats have either announced a 2024 campaign bid for her job, including Reps. Katie Porter and Adam Schiff. Rep. Barbara Lee has also expressed interest in the race.
