January 8, 2015 Sen. Barbara Boxer, who has served in the Senate for 21 years, announced Thursday she will retire at the end of her term. Her retirement, at the end of her term in 2016, will open a Senate seat in California for the first time since 1992.
In an interview with her grandson Zach Rodham (who is also Hillary Clinton’s nephew), Boxer said that while she will be leaving Congress, she will continue her work on Democratic politics. And when it came to 2016, she dropped a very large hint.
“Zach, I am never going to retire. The work is too important. But I will not be running for the Senate in 2016,” Boxer said. “I have to make sure the Senate seat stays progressive. That is so critical. And I want to help our Democratic candidate for president make history.”
Let us pray for a major car accident – a head-on high speed collision involving her and Dianne Feinstein would be great.
