Barbara Boxer to Retire

California Sen. Barbara Boxer announced Thursday she will not run for re-election in 2016, opening up an attractive seat for ambitious fellow Democrats.

Boxer made the announcement in a video posted to her campaign website, in which she conducted a mock interview with her grandson Zach.

“I am never going to retire. The work is too important. But I will not be running for the Senate in 2016,” she said.
