Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, on Monday announced that she will run for re-election. "We are better off with her leadership and I look forward to continuing to fight together for California in the Senate".

The announcement was first tweeted by an unverified Twitter account affiliated with Feinstin.

Speaking on CBS' "Face the Nation" program, Ms. Feinstein, California Democrat who remains one of the nation's loudest voices in support of gun-control measures, said she fears anything short of an act of Congress will simply be overturned by the next president. If elected, this will be her fifth term.

However, when reminded of her age, a mere 38 percent said it would be good for her to run again, while 62 percent say it would be a bad idea.

"How many times will voters have to demand change before we listen?" he added.

"What Californians get from Dianne is someone who sticks to her principles and achieves results regardless of powerful opponents, from the assaults weapons ban to the Central Intelligence Agency torture report", Harris said. "Safe Democratic seats are the place we should be representing core Democratic values".

Understand, the Justice Department under Sessions is already reversing numerous positions it held under President Barack Obama. We expect the courts will continue to recognize this truth, and disregard this hateful decision.

Feinstein's California colleague, Sen.

Fewer than half of Californians say they want Feinstein to run for reelection, according to a poll released by the Public Policy Institute of California in September.

Feinstein also said she had some "interest" from the Congressional Republicans to work on the legislation banning bump stocks, but did not provide any names.

She was first elected in 1992 to fill a vacancy for two years, then elected four more times to full six-year Senate terms.
