Bye Bye Boxer? Hello Janet Napolitano?

The San Francisco Chronicle reports:
Barbara Boxer says she has yet to make up her mind about seeking a fifth term in 2016, but there's no shortage of signs that the Democrat may be opting out.

It's not just that she has less than $200,000 in her campaign account, compared with $3.5 million at this stage before her last election fight. Some comments from those who know the 73-year-old senator are also telling.

"She is not running for re-election," said one longtime Democratic fundraiser with deep ties to Boxer, who spoke only on background.
What crony might replace lefty crony Boxer? SFC speculates:
On the Democratic side, there's billionaire environmentalist Tom Steyer, Facebook executive Sheryl Sandberg, L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti, outgoing Controller John Chiang and University of California President Janet Napolitano, a former Arizona governor and homeland security chief.

Republicans have had a hard time winning statewide office in recent years, but they've got two potential self-funding millionaires who might well run: Rep. Darrell Issa of Vista (San Diego County) and former business executive Carly Fiorina, who lost to Boxer four years ago.
For those who missed my earlier report, following her stint at DHS, Napolitano moved to California and is living the pimp life in Oakland.  (SEE: Former DHS Secretary Janet Napolitano Is Living Very, Very Large in Oakland, California)
