I was just reading this on a blog called “Red Blue Divide”:

Dianne Feinstein is once again making her way through the democratic process to represent the people of California in the United States Senate.

She began her political career almost 50 years ago, in 1970 working as a San Francisco Supervisor. From there she pivoted to become the mayor of San Francisco and has been a United States senator since 1992.

“There’s nothing to it,” Feinstein told CNN on Tuesday about Democratic governor’s remarks. “No,” she said when asked if she would retire before the end of her six-year term, which is set to expire at the end of 2024. “I have not discussed
