Democratic Sen. Barbara Boxer (CA) announced Wednesday that she does not intend to seek re-election in 2016.

According to CNN, the long-serving Boxer said that she is stepping down from the Senate, but has no plans to retire.

“I am never going to retire,” Boxer said. “The work is too important.”

She intends to channel her energy into her PAC for Change group and to ensure that the White House and her Senate seat stay in Democratic hands in the next election cycle.

Boxer, 74, said that her age has nothing to do with her decision.

“Some people are old at 40, some people are young at 80. I feel as young as I did when I got elected. I was in my 50s,” Boxer said.

Boxer closed an interview with CNN with a series of rhymes, saying, “The Senate is the place where I’ve always made my case. For families, for the planet and the human race. More than 20 years in a job I love, thanks to California and the Lord above. So although I wont be working from my senate space and I wont’ be running in that next tough race. As long as there are issues and challenges and strife, I will never retire because that’s the meaning of my life.”

She said that she does not intend to run for president and that she supports the idea of a presidential run by former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
