Adam Schiff announced he was running for US Senate on Thursday.
Schiff is running for Dianne Feinstein’s seat – it is unclear if she is running for re-election.
Senator Dianne Feinstein is reportedly facing serious cognitive decline.
Rep. Katie Porter already announced she would run for the seat and Rep. Barbara Lee plans on running for senate according to CNN.
Democratic Rep. Adam Schiff announced a 2024 Senate bid on Thursday, launching a campaign for Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s seat in what is shaping up to be a competitive Democratic primary.
“I look forward to campaigning hard in this race, meeting Californians where they are, and listening to what they want from their next Senator. I hope to earn their votes and their trust,” Schiff said in a statement announcing his run.
Though she has filed 2024 reelection paperwork with the FEC, Feinstein, 89, has not yet announced whether she plans to seek a sixth full term next year and has faced criticism over her fitness for the job.
Schiff is the latest Democrat to jump into the primary, joining fellow California Rep. Katie Porter, who announced her bid earlier this month. Multiple sources told CNN earlier this month that Rep. Barbara Lee told her colleagues in the Congressional Black Caucus during a closed-door meeting that she plans to run for the Senate as well.
He made his announcement on Twitter.
