Sen. Di­anne Fein­stein (D) “had a pace­maker in­stalled in what her staff is de­scrib­ing as an ‘abund­ance of cau­tion.’ Fein­stein’s of­fice said she un­der­went the 90-minute pro­ced­ure at George Wash­ing­ton Uni­versity Hos­pit­al on Tues­day. Her staff called it a vol­un­tary and non-emer­gency de­cision. … Fein­stein’s of­fice said the pro­ced­ure ‘went smoothly and she will re­turn to a full sched­ule very soon.’” (Mc­Clatchy DC)

Fein­stein re­cently de­clined to com­ment on her polit­ic­al plans for the fu­ture, say­ing, “Oh, I’m not go­ing to an­swer that now.”
