CALIFORNIA - U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein has been reelected to the U.S. Senate following the 2018 Midterm Elections.

Feinstein, 85, has served on the Senate since 1992. 

She beat Kevin De Leon in the race with 3,414,530 votes which comes out to 54.3 percent. De Leon had 2,872,510 votes which come out to 45.7 percent of the total votes. 

In her acceptance speech, she spoke about the state of politics in our country. 

"This is such a great country and it's been factionalized and trivialized with rhetoric," she said. "We must stop that. We must come together as the great power that we are. 

She also spoke specifically about California and how she wants to make change. 

"This state: The fifth largest economic power on Earth, over 40 million people, bigger than 21 states and the District of Columbia put together, needs strong representation," she said.
