A Labor Party source previously said Meghan was working to become US president. She makes no secret of the fact that she has always been interested in a career in politics and believes that women can change the world.
It is therefore not surprising that Meghan Markle’s name was being discussed in Hollywood last night as a promising replacement for Californian Senator Dianne Feinstein.
Indeed, within minutes of the announcement of 90-year-old Feinstein’s death on Friday, the Mail on Sunday reported that “phones were lighting up” with speculation that the Duchess of Sussex might be in line to become one of the candidates to succeed her.
A major Democratic donor close to California Gov. Gavin Newsom, who will choose Feinstein’s replacement, said Meghan has a good chance and would be a good candidate. But he also noted that now is not the best time for this.
“In the madness that is US politics these days, this is not impossible now,” he concluded.
Feinstein’s death has created a unique situation in which Newsom, 55, the charismatic governor of California who is considered the front-runner to win the presidency if anything happens to President Joe Biden, 80, has complete freedom to choose whoever will replace her until it happens. the next elections are in November 2024.
US Senator Dianne Feinstein died early Friday morning at her home in Washington, DC.
It was previously reported that Meghan was “forging connections among senior Democrats” with the aim of creating a grassroots campaign to fuel her political ambitions – the ultimate goal of which was the US presidency. She and Prince Harry reportedly held a one-hour virtual meeting with Governor Newsom, but he chose a different candidate.
Since arriving in California with husband Prince Harry in 2020, Meghan has forged political contacts. She is close friends with feminist Gloria Steinem, an influential force in the Democratic Party. And she introduced her to key people in the party.
