Long-time California Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein made headlines in February when the 89-year-old announced that she will not seek another term in office.
While some Democrats may have hoped that progressive Rep. Ro Khanna might win the race to replace her, Khanna says he isn't interested.
According to the Washington Examiner, Khanna made the announcement on Sunday during an interview with CNN host Jake Tapper.

Khanna told Taper that although he won't be making a Senate run, he is getting behind fellow California Democratic Rep. Barbara Lee.
"The best place, the most exciting place, action place for me to serve as a progressive is in the House of Representatives, and I'm honored to be co-chairing Barbara Lee's campaign for the Senate and endorsing her today," declared.
