Schiff was in San Francisco for campaign events as he vies for the U.S. Senate seat left vacant by Dianne Feinstein.

Upon going to fetch his dressy attire for the occasion, Schiff found that thieves had swiped his bags from his car, which he'd left at a parking garage downtown, according to The San Francisco Chronicle. As a result, he showed up to the campaign event looking a bit more casual than his suited peers.

Lee Houskeeper, a press agent for one of Schiff's supporters, attorney Joe Cotchett, reportedly quipped during the dinner: "I guess it's 'Welcome to San Francisco.'"

The congressman reportedly admitted he'd been warned not to leave items in his car, but said he was rushing to get to the restaurant. Houskeeper said Schiff seemed unfazed by his clothing mishap and opted not to dwell on the ordeal.

"Yes, they took my bags. But I'm here to thank Joe," the Democrat from Burbank told his guests.

Cotchett told the Chronicle that Schiff "really showed himself" at the event, and predicted he would be "a great senator" who would "change the Senate tremendously."

Houskeeper jokingly suggested that the politician "go out with Willie Brown," the city's former mayor, "to choose a new suit from one of the many fine clothing establishments in San Francisco.”

“Willie knows them all,” he said, referencing Brown's known affinity for fancy suits.

Schiff is no stranger to the Bay Area as he attended high school in a suburb of Oakland called Danville. He has also visited the area countless times over the course of his 23 years representing California's 30th congressional district.

The congressman is facing off in the Senate race against Republican Steve Garvey, a former pro baseball player and first-time candidate.

Garvey, who played on the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres, clinched his candidacy in the March special primary and voters will make their final decision in the November 2024 general election.

Democratic Sen. Laphonza Butler currently holds the position but declined to enter the race. Gov. Gavin Newsom appointed Butler to complete Feinstein's Senate term in October 2023.

Feinstein died a month earlier at 90 years old after three decades in her position, longer than any other female Senator in history.

She was also the mayor of San Francisco from 1978 to 1988.
