Senator Dianne Feinstein, 90, has been hospitalized after a fall at her home in San Francisco, but the extent of her injuries is not yet clear. Feinstein has faced health issues in recent years and has been working a lighter schedule on her doctors’ advice, due to side-effects from the shingles virus. Despite appearing frail and needing assistance, she has held her position in the Senate, representing California for almost 31 years.

While some have called for her resignation, citing potential delays in confirmation hearings and other health concerns, she has refused to step down. Supporters have defended her, calling the demands for her resignation sexist. Feinstein has announced that she will not run for re-election next year, and several Democrats are already seeking to replace her.
