Last month, 89-year-old Dianne Feinstein made a return to the Senate in a wheelchair, and her visibly diminished state left the public in shock.
As per a report from The New York Times, Feinstein depends on a team of aides in order to carry out her duties.
With Feinstein’s declining health, the race to replace her is heating up.
Baseball legend Steve Garvey is meeting with voters and GOP officials as he considers entering the race.
From 1969 to 1987, the 74-year-old Garvey made his mark in Major League Baseball as he played for the Los Angeles Dodgers and the San Diego Padres.
As reported by ABC 7 News:
He appeared at a recent fundraiser for Republican Rep. Michelle Steel in Orange County, where he signed baseballs and talked about his potential candidacy.
“He is seriously considering entering the race,” said veteran consultant Andy Gharakhani, who is advising Garvey.
Garvey has flirted with the possibility of entering politics before, including after his retirement from baseball, when he teased a possible U.S. Senate run but never became a candidate.
“I have been approached to run for office and am exploring that. No announcement is imminent,” Garvey said in a statement released by a Dodgers team spokesperson.
Adam Schiff has announced his bid for Feinstein’s seat, joining Democratic Rep. Katie Porter in the race.
