Feinstein 'We need a law' on bump stocks

Sen. Dianne FeinsteinDianne Emiel FeinsteinGun proposal picks up GOP support Gingrich: Banning rapid fire gun modification is "common sense" House bill set to reignite debate on warrantless surveillance MORE (D-Calif.) announced on Monday morning that she will run for reelection in 2018.

Feinstein also announced the run on Twitter, using an unverified account that remained dormant since 2013.

But in a sign that Feinstein still has plenty of sway among the state's liberal power brokers, Kamala Harris, California's junior senator and a favorite among progressives, quickly and enthusiastically endorsed her bid. "I'm all in!" Feinstein said in a tweet.

Feinstein is a centrist Democrat and the oldest current senator at 84 years old, and could face a challenge from the left, though none have emerged yet.

Feinstein's old-school political sensibilities and foreign policy could be at odds with California, where increasingly young and diverse voters have demanded all-out opposition to Trump. Some of the Democrats now running for governor, including State Treasurer John Chiang, hadn't ruled out switching to a Senate campaign. For instance, former California Sen.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, meanwhile, plans to host a fundraiser for Feinstein's re-election campaign, the Los Angeles Times reported last week.

Asked about a poll that half of California voters don't think she should run, she added: "Oh look".
