The election of 2024 is already gaining buzz with the announcement that this progressive Democrat has thrown her hat into the ring to challenge an establishment career politician. Unfortunately, this is in a state once regarded as great until Gavin Newscom came in. Nonetheless,this would certainly be a victory to retire one of the oldest serving congresswomen.
Progressive Democrat, Katie Porter, has announced her bid for Dianne Feinstein’s California Senate seat. While some may think the 89-year-old senator can still hold her own in the political landscape, it may be time to retire the old hag and allow someone new take the reins. It would surely be a dream to see a conservative gun for that position as Porter isn’t that popular or liked but, if a district like Feinstein has voted for her for all these decades, we would need a miracle.

U.S. Senator Diane Feinstein has been re-elected several times over the decades in California, a testament to her long-standing principles and dedication to her constituents. Despite such longevity of service, it is hardly surprising to conservatives that she might decide to retire or be defeated against a much younger radical progressive, given the tendencies of Californians towards liberalism. Furthermore, many identify Katie Porter as an extreme example of progressive ideology which is likely why liberal Californians might switch their allegiance. After all, Democrats in California do love to live in their own misery. However, most importantly, Career politicians on both sides must go and retiring Diane would certainly be a start.
