Dianne Feinstein, the senior senator from California, is set to finally retire from politics. Feinstein is 89 years old and has been a senator for more than 30 years. She will not seek reelection in 2024.

“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.

“There are times for all things under the sun and I think that will be the right time,” she said.

President Biden said of Dianne Feinstein, with who he served in the Senate for 17 years, said “I’ve served with more U.S. senators than just about anyone. I can honestly say that Dianne Feinstein is one of the very best.”

Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren told reporters, “Every other woman in public office owes a special debt to Dianne Feinstein.”

Jerry Brown, California’s former governor, told the New York Times “She has a level of integrity that’s unusual — she really thinks about the merits, more than most. She gives her all to the job. And I think it has been difficult for her to come to the end.”

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer told reporters “She’s a legend. She was the leader on so many different issues – assault weapons, environment, women’s rights and so much else.”

Dianne Feinstein was first elected to the Senate in 1992 in a by-election to fill an open seat. She won reelection to a sixth term in 2018. Before that Feinstein served as Mayor of San Francisco.
There have been concerns that Dianne Feinstein is too old to stay on in her role as a senator for some time now and many had hoped she would even retire early and not finish her term. Her forgetfulness and mistakes were often reported on over the years. Some of her Senate colleagues even reportedly said that they need to reintroduce themselves to Feinstein on more than one occasion and her aids have been said to need to constantly remind her of where she is and what is going on around her.
