CA Dem Rep. Barbara Lee To Run For Senate In 2024

Politico reports:

Rep. Barbara Lee has told her fellow lawmakers she’s running for Senate in California, according to two sources familiar with the situation. She informed her colleagues in a closed-door Congressional Black Caucus meeting on Wednesday.

Asked later Wednesday about her plans, Lee said in a brief interview she’d officially announce “when it’s appropriate.” Lee declined to say whether she’d run against 89-year-old Feinstein if the California senator chose to run again rather than retire.

Lee’s decision to run comes a day after Rep. Katie Porter (D-Calif.) also announced a bid for the seat currently held by Feinstein (D-Calif.).

Rep. Adam Schiff has said that he’ll decide on a Senate bid only after Feinstein makes clear her plans.
