Official statement confirming U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s death

Senator Dianne Feinstein, 90, died Thursday night, according to a statement released by her chief of staff, James Sauls.

It is now up to California Governor Gavin Newsom to appoint a replacement to serve out the remainder of her term. Feinstein was the state’s longest-serving senator and the chamber’s longest-serving woman.

Here is James Sauls’ statement.

“Unfortunately, Senator Feinstein died last night at her home in Washington, D.C. Her death is a great loss for so many people, from those who loved and cared for her to the people of California to whom she dedicated her life.

“Senator Feinstein was never afraid to fight for what was just and right.” At the same time, she was always willing to collaborate with anyone, even those with whom she disagreed, if it meant bettering the lives of Californians or our nation.

“There are few women who can be senators, chairman, mayors, wives, mothers, and grandmothers.” Senator Feinstein was a natural force who had a huge impact on our country and her home state.

“She left an undeniable and extraordinary legacy.” There is much to say about who she was and what she accomplished, but for the time being, we will mourn the loss of our beloved boss, mentor, and friend.”
