WASHINGTON — Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., collapsed at home on Tuesday and went to the hospital to be checked out, her office said.
“Senator Feinstein went to the hospital as a precaution after a minor fall at her home yesterday afternoon. All of her scans were clear and she has returned home,” a Feinstein spokeswoman told NBC News in an email Wednesday.
He was in the hospital for about two hours, the spokesman said.
TMZ First reported On Wednesday morning, the 90-year-old senator went to the hospital after a fall at his San Francisco home on Tuesday.
Feinstein’s health has been closely watched — this year, she missed three months of work in the Senate after being hospitalized with shingles. He has rejected calls to resign and has insisted he will remain a senator until his term ends in January 2025, then retire.
Three House Democrats are in a race to succeed Feinstein in the solidly blue state in the November 2024 election.
Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said he spoke with Feinstein on Wednesday.
“I am Sen. this morning. I spoke with Feinstein. He said he was not injured and went to the hospital as a precaution. “I’m glad she’s back home now and doing well.”
