Will this Ancient Senator Run Again?

California Senator Democrat Dianne Feinstein has already filled out paperwork for her re-election in 2024, when she’ll be 91. The Free Beacon reports:

Only weeks after securing a full fifth term, Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein (Calif.) appears to be positioning herself to seek re-election in 2024, when she will be 91 years old.

On Monday, the senator changed the name of her political action committee to “Feinstein for Senate 2024,” according to documents filed with the Federal Elections Commission.

While Feinstein’s statement of organization is not an official declaration of candidacy, it does indicate the senator plans to raise campaign funds for a potential re-election effort.

First elected to her seat in 1992, Feinstein is currently the oldest serving member of the U.S. Senate at the age of 85. Given that the oldest individual elected this cycle was Mitt Romney, 71, Feinstein is likely to keep that title at least until January 2021.

This is absolute madness, considering life expectancy for women is 81 years old.
