Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), now 87, has already filed paperwork indicating she might run again in 2024.

The California Democrat filed the initial re-election paperwork last week with the Federal Election Commission, according to L.A. Magazine.

But a Feinstein rep clarified what the FEC filings allegedly mean.

“To be clear, Senator Feinstein has had a campaign committee since she took office, as all senators must."

"In order to keep this account active, the senator has to maintain filings with the FEC."

"Yesterday’s filings merely reflected an updated address,” the rep said.

They also added there was no “announcement” regarding a 2024 Feinstein run.

Feinstein would be 91 years of age if she re-elected in 2024.

She would be 97 by the time she serves her full six-year term.

Meanwhile, SF Gate reported that Feinstein is suffering from “cognitive decline."

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer recently asked Feinstein twice to step down from her role in the Senate Judiciary because she forgot the first conversation, according to The New Yorker.

Unnamed sources cited in the article allege claim the Senate say “her short-term memory has grown so poor that she often forgets she has been briefed on a topic,” and that her “staff has said that sometimes she seems herself, and other times unreachable.”

Another Democratic senator cited in the article said:

“She’s an incredibly effective human being, but there’s definitely been deterioration in the last year. She’s in a very different mode now.”

The magazine also notes a Nov. 17 hearing where Feinstein asked Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey whether he was doing enough to stem the spread of disinformation.

“It was a good question. Feinstein seemed sharp and focused. For decades, she has been the epitome of a female trailblazer in Washington, always hyper-prepared,” wrote the New Yorker.

“But this time, after Dorsey responded, Feinstein asked him the same question again, reading it word for word, along with the Trump tweet."

"Her inflection was eerily identical. Feinstein looked and sounded just as authoritative, seemingly registering no awareness that she was repeating herself verbatim. Dorsey graciously answered the question all over again.”

Others also weighed in:

Law professor and CNN contributor Rick Hasen also chimed in:

“It’s time for Sen. Feinstein to retire."

“She did some great work in Senate. But it’s been clear for last few years that her cognitive decline is serious. Let Gov. Newsom appoint someone who can fully represent CA’s interests until election.”

Another Twitter user wrote:

“Did anyone else catch Dianne Feinstein repeating her question to Jack Dorsey of Twitter at the hearing today? Within 2 minutes she asked same question twice."

"Maybe it’s time to pass the baton? She’s accomplished a lot for the Democratic Party over the years, but…"

Another on Twitter wrote:

“We are in a crisis and a day of reckoning. It’s time to move on and move fast. @SenFeinstein, like a 35-year-old professional athlete, needs to retire with grace.”
