California Gov. Gavin Newsom would make an 'interim' choice if Dianne Feinstein vacates her Senate seat

  • California Governor Gavin Newsom plans to appoint an interim senator if Senator Diane Feinstein is unable to serve her full term due to recent health issues and questions about her ability to continue effectively. Newsom wants to avoid tipping the scales in the upcoming primary and has previously pledged to appoint a Black woman if the seat opens up before 2024. Despite public pressure, he does not plan to make another appointment and has no interest in running for the Senate seat himself.
  • A UC-Berkeley/LA Times poll shows that a majority of Californians, including Democrats, prefer that Newsom appoint someone prepared to run for a full term in 2024. There is support for an interim appointee, but it is lower in comparison.
  • Feinstein's recent health issues and decreased activity have raised concerns about her cognitive abilities and sparked debate within her own party. The California Senate primary, which is nonpartisan, is scheduled for March 2023.
