There are increasing calls for California Senator Dianne Feinstein to resign due to concerns about her cognitive state. Feinstein is 89 years old and has announced that she will not be seeking re-election in 2024. Reports suggest that she has difficulty remembering people and information and she has unknowingly asked the same question repeatedly to people providing testimony at hearings. The latest issue with Feinstein is her absence from the Judiciary Committee due to shingles which has made it impossible for Senate Democrats to confirm Joe Biden's judicial nominations. Republicans are against Feinstein's resignation, but Democrats are urging her to resign to help the party's political expediency. Three members of the House of Representatives have decided to run for Feinstein's Senate seat, and if she resigns, Democratic Governor Gavin Newsom would get to appoint a replacement to fill the vacancy. There would then be a special election that could potentially change the game with regard to many Democratic open seats in the House of Representatives.
