Congresswoman Katie Porter to Run for Senate

Congresswoman Katie Porter (D-Irvine) announced her campaign for a seat in the U.S. Senate in a video message posted to YouTube on Tuesday, Jan. 10.

Porter, who won the November midterm election against Orange County Republican Scott Baugh with a 51.72% to 48.28% vote count, stated that California needs a “warrior” in Washington and expressed her intent to challenge the status quo and hold powerful entities such as Wall Street, Big Oil and Big Pharma accountable. 

Her announcement was made with the aim of taking the seat of Senator Dianne Feinstein, who hasn’t declared intentions to run again for 2024 and has been criticized for staying in office despite her advanced age. 

In response, Baugh took to Twitter to announce he would be running for the 47th Congressional District Representative again in 2024.
