WASHINGTON – California Rep. Adam Schiff, who became a target of GOP wrath for leading the first impeachment of then-president Donald Trump, Thursday launched his candidacy for the Senate seat that fellow Democrat Dianne Feinstein now occupies.

“We’re in the fight of our lives — a fight I’m ready to lead as California’s next U.S. Senator,” he tweeted.

Schiff joins Democrat Rep. Katie Porter in the 2024 race even as Feinstein, currently the longest-serving woman senator, has yet to announce whether she’ll seek re-election.

Feinstein not ready to announce her plans

It’s likely an announcement from Feinstein, 89, isn’t coming any time soon. She told news website Raw Story that she does not have any plans to announce her intentions until 2024.
