Boxer Declines Another Term

With the announcement today that U.S. Senator Barbara Boxer will not seek another term in 2016, it is worth noting that at the end of her current term (in January 2017), Boxer will leave office after 24 years as California’s third longest-serving Senator. Her tenure falls behind only those of Hiram Johnson (27 years) and Dianne Feinstein, and ties with that of Alan Cranston, her immediate predecessor.
