Even though U.S. Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s approval rating has hit a low of 41 percent, no one has stepped forward to challenge the California Democrat in 2012. With time running out for a challenger, it now appears that former conservative talk show host Michael Reagan may take a shot, The San Francisco Chronicle reported.

Michael Reagan, Feinstein, Senate, CaliforniaThe son of former President Ronald Reagan said "Yes," in an email to the paper Thursday, adding "but can't talk about it now." Reagan has never held public office and declined further comment, the Chronicle reported.

California Republican Party Chairman Tom Del Beccaro told the Chronicle that, although he had not heard of anyone challenging Feinstein, "I'm confident that someone will come forward soon."

Marty Wilson, who ran former Hewlett-Packard CEO Carly Fiorina’s unsuccessful campaign against Sen. Barbara Boxer, D-Calif., last year, said a candidate will have to announce by mid-November to stir interest before the end of the year. "People who were assuming that this was not a winnable race might want to take a second look at this now," he told the Chronicle.
