California Sen. Barbara Boxer, sick of journalists hounding her about whether she would seek re-election in 2016, said Thursday that she would not.

She made the announcement in an interview with her grandson, Zach Rodham, who also happens to be Hillary Rodham Clinton’s nephew.

Boxer, a Democrat, has held the Senate seat since her election in 1992, after five terms in the House…

Wait, wait, wait. How is it that her grandson is related to the former secretary of State and presumptive 2016 presidential candidate?

Zach Rodham, as the interactive Muckety map shows, is the son of Nicole Boxer, the senator’s daughter, and Tony Rodham, the secretary’s brother. His parents divorced in 2000.
