I have good news and I have bad news.
Rep. Adam Schiff (R-CA) appears to be on his last term in the House of Representatives.
With Democrats losing the majority, Schiff has withdrawn his efforts for House leadership if Pelosi steps down.
In fact, it is unlikely that Schiff will run for re-election to defend his House seat in 2024.
But that is where the good news ends.
Onward and Upward
It is unlikely that Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) will run for re-election.
That, of course, means her seat will be up for grabs.
According to the DC whispers, Schiff wants that seat.
Schiff actually needs Feinstein to hold and make it through the end of her term or his aspirations will go up in smoke and he will be stuck in the House.
In fact, even if she does remain, it is no lock that Schiff would win the election, or even the nomination.
Governor Gavin Newsom has already committed to putting a black woman in that seat if Feinstein steps down.
If that happens, Schiff would have to primary her, which would not be a good look for Schiff in today’s political environment.
If that does not happen, he will likely be facing off against a minority woman in the primary that will have the backing of Newsom, so you can see how this gets muddied.
The upside to all of this is that if Feinstein holds on and Schiff runs and loses the election for her seat, we are finally rid of him.
