President Biden and U.S. Senators across political spectrum remember late Senator Feinstein, successor named

Senator Dianne Feinstein, who died late Thursday night, is being remembered by both Republican and Democratic colleagues as a trailblazer and one of the most effective members of the Senate in recent decades.

President Biden noted that she was often the only woman in the room when important policy decisions were being made.

Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell said that she was a “truly remarkable individual, and Republican Sen. Joni Ernst said she blazed a trail for women in politics and has left behind an incredible legacy of bipartisanship.

California Governor Gavin Newsom has named Laphonza Butler as Senator Feinstein’s successor in the United States Senate.
