Dianne Feinstein, at 84 the oldest member of the U.S. Senate, announced Monday that she'll run for a sixth term in 2018.

Speaking on CBS' "Face the Nation" program, Ms. Feinstein, California Democrat who remains one of the nation's loudest voices in support of gun-control measures, said she fears anything short of an act of Congress will simply be overturned by the next president. "But there's still so much work left to do, from ending gun violence, to combating climate change, to ensuring proper and affordable access to healthcare, and to giving DREAMers the chance to stay in the United States". Feinstein's press secretary and communications director confirmed to TPM that Feinstein is running for re-election. The senior senator has faced withering criticism this year from some liberal activists who accuse her of not being tough enough on President Donald Trump.

Should Feinstein win, she would be 91 by the end of her term. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., said that if Republicans were willing to pass a bill banning bump stock devices - like those used by the Las Vegas hotel sniper - he would support the legislation, even if it was not accompanied by any other restrictions of weapons purchases.

"Regulations aren't going to do it", she said in the interview which airs Sunday morning. Congressional Republicans and President Trump have, however, called for a review of federal policy that now permits bump stocks.

California Democrats have been anxiously circling Feinstein's seat, hoping she would create an opening for them by retiring.
