Democrats add interest to California senate race
WASHINGTON — Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Burbank, announced Thursday he's running for Senate in 2024, joining what's expected to be a crowded Democratic primary race for the seat held by Sen. Dianne Feinstein.

"We’re in the fight of our lives for the future of our country. Our democracy is under assault from MAGA extremists, who care only about gaining power and keeping it. And our economy is simply not working for millions of Americans, who are working harder than ever just to get by," Schiff said in a statement launching his campaign.

Feinstein has not announced her plans, but already three prominent California Democrats have set their sights on replacing her: Schiff and Reps. Katie Porter and Barbara Lee.

Democrats "need a fighter in the U.S. Senate who has been at the center of the struggle for our democracy and our economy," Schiff said, adding that his goals are to achieve universal health care, protecting the environment, expanding the right to vote, to build affordable housing and keep people safe.

Schiff, 62, has served in the House since 2001 and just recently ended his tenure as the chair of the House Intelligence Committee.
