Feinstein hospitaliz­ed with shingles

- — Liz Goodwin

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D), the oldest member of the Senate, has been hospitaliz­ed after being diagnosed with shingles during the Senate recess earlier this month.

“I … am receiving treatment in San Francisco and expect to make a full recovery,” Feinstein said in a statement Thursday afternoon. “I hope to return to the Senate later this month.”

Feinstein, who turns 90 in June, was not present for several roll call votes this week and did not attend Wednesday’s Senate Judiciary Committee hearing with Attorney General Merrick Garland.

A spokespers­on earlier Thursday had said that the senator was in California “dealing with a health issue” but did not specify the nature of the issue.

The senator recently announced she would not seek reelection in 2024.
