Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein (Calif.) announced Monday morning that she will run for reelection in 2018.
"I am running for reelection to the Senate," Feinstein tweeted. "Lots more to do: ending gun violence, combating climate change, access to healthcare. I’m all in!"

The 84-year-old senator, who has served in the U.S. Senate since 1992, has remained silent for months over whether she would run again.
She told NBC's "Meet the Press" on Sunday that she was close to making a decision.
"You are going to find out about that very shortly," Feinstein said, alluding to the announcement that would come the next day.
"I’ve got things to fight for," Feinstein said. "I’m in a position where I can be effective, and hopefully that means something to California."
