Senator Dianne Feinstein's announcement that she is seeking re-election drew somewhat negative reactions among politicians and activists in the Democratic Party base and more enthusiastic reactions among party stalwarts, including Rep. Adam Schiff and Sen. Kamala Harris.

Progressive critics cite Feinstein's lack of endorsement for single-payer healthcare and moderated attitudes toward President Trump as reasons for dampened enthusiasm toward her candidacy.
