Dianne Feinstein Breaks Election Record

Politico notes a little bit of election trivia regarding Sen. Dianne Feinstein:
Dianne Feinstein is the most popular senator in U.S. history. If you measure by votes won, that is. The latest, semi-official tally from the California secretary of state reports the Democratic senator won nearly 7.3 million votes on Nov. 6, breaking the previous Senate record held by her colleague, Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer. Feinstein won 7,297,972 votes on Election Day – 342,244 more votes than Boxer in her 2004 re-election romp.
As Politico notes, Senators elected from California will always have the highest vote count.
