Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., is pushing back against a news report
citing multiple anonymous colleagues questioning her ability to continue serving and voicing concerns that she is mentally unfit to serve.
Feinstein, 88, said that the record shows she is an effective representative for her state.
“I remain committed to do what I said I would when I was re-elected in 2018: fight for Californians
especially on the economy and the key issues for California of water and fire,” she said in a statement issued by her office.
“While I have focused for much of the past year on my husband’s health and ultimate passing,
I have remained committed to achieving results and I’d put my record up against anyone’s.”
Feinstein said that, in the last few months, she has led the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act and secured
additional funding to retain federal firefighters to help California prepare for the upcoming wildfire season.

“The real question is whether I’m still an effective representative for 40 million Californians, and the record shows that I am,” she said.
