A senate run is being seriously considered by Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA).
Schiff’s involvement in such an endeavor could boost his profile even more after establishing himself as a major Trump enemy while serving on the House Intelligence Committee, as impeachment manager, and as a January 6 Committee member.
Schiff told FOX 11 Los Angeles’ “The Issue Is” program that he has received positive feedback regarding his potential Senate campaign, but stressed that the determining factor will be whether Sen. Feinstein (D-CA) seeks another term in 2024.
In spite of recent mental health concerns, Feinstein, 89, says she plans to finish her current term. According to The Los Angeles Times, the senator will decide whether to run again by spring.
Schiff, who represents Los Angeles County, was reported earlier this year to be exploring the possibility of replacing Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) as House Democratic leader.
Since then, Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) has emerged as Pelosi’s expected successor next year when Republicans take over the House. Schiff could be kicked out of the intelligence panel if Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) becomes speaker after accusations that Schiff has “lied to the American public repeatedly.”
With the majority in the House soon to be in control of the Republicans, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) is scrambling to find other means of employment to stay relevant. Out of desperation, Schiff has seriously considered a run for U.S. Senate, since his party currently controls those chambers. A move like this from the do-nothing politician shows how irrelevant he has become in the eyes of many.
