California Senator Dianne Feinstein has announced that she will not seek re-election in 2024. This has opened up the field for a hotly contested Democratic primary in California, with several candidates, including Adam Schiff, Katie Porter, and Barbara Lee, already in the race. Concerns about Feinstein's cognitive state have been growing in recent years, with widespread reports of her forgetting people she has met and being confused during Senate hearings. California's jungle primary means that all candidates, regardless of party, are on the same ballot, and the top two vote-getters make it to the final election. With numerous Democratic heavy hitters running, the primary will be interesting as Schiff, Porter, and Lee are all relatively well-known. Ultimately, Feinstein's retirement should be seen as a good thing, and it will be interesting to see which direction California voters will want their representation to go in.
