Remembering Dianne Feinstein
Sep 30, 2023

The longest-serving female senator in US history, California’s Dianne Feinstein died today at the age of 90. Feinstein came to national prominence before taking her senate seat, becoming mayor of San Francisco in 1978 following the tragic assassination of Mayor George Moscone and Harvey Milk. Over a decade later, she then won a special senate election that sent her to Washington, where she worked tirelessly for gun laws. By the time Feinstein was elected to a fifth full term in 2018, she was the oldest sitting US Senator. Senator Patty Murray and former Congresswoman Jane Harman knew Feinstein well and they join the program with reflections on her life and legacy.
