Oldest US Senator to Seek Reelection in 2018

WASHINGTON The Democratic senator for California, Dianne Feinstein, at 84 the oldest member of the US Senate, announced on Monday that she will stand for reelection in 2018.

I am running for reelection to the Senate, the 84-year-old lawmaker said on Twitter about her plans to seek a fifth term.

Lots more to do: ending gun violence, combating climate change, access to healthcare. Im all in! she added.

Terms of office in the United States Senate are for six years, so if she keeps her seat, her next term will end when she is 91.

Feinstein, one of the most influential members of the upper house, was a pioneer along with Barbara Boxer, who retired last January, when both won seats in the Senate in 1992 to become the first women senators for the state of California.

The highest ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee and leader in the fight against gun violence, Feinstein is one of eight octogenarians in the US upper house.

The senator had not previously wished to answer questions about her future when faced with increasing pressure from her party to find out whether it would have to find her replacement.
