Calif. Democrat Feinstein hints at Senate re-election run

WASHINGTON — California Democrat Dianne Feinstein is giving her strongest hints so far that she's going to seek a fifth full Senate term in 2018.

She tells NBC's "Meet the Press" that "I'm ready for a good fight. I've got things to fight for."

Feinstein is age 84 — and is the oldest current senator.

She's been publicly noncommittal about a 2018 run, and when she was asked in a recent television interview whether she was "up for another six years," she replied: "Well, we will see, won't we."

But Feinstein is telling NBC that she's "in a position where I can be effective, and hopefully that means something to California."

Feinstein — who had a pacemaker implanted in January — joined the Senate in 1992 after winning a special election.
