90-Year-Old Senator Feinstein Briefly Hospitalized After Fall At Her Home

U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s office says she fell in her home in California and went to a hospital. A spokesman for the 90-year-old Democrat says she “briefly went to the hospital” on Tuesday afternoon as a precaution after “a minor fall.” The spokesman said Wednesday that all of Feinstein’s “scans were clear and she returned home.” Feinstein is the oldest member of Congress. She has faced mounting concerns about her health and her ability to perform the duties of a senator. Feinstein took office in 1992 and announced earlier this year that she will not seek reelection in 2024.
