“I am here to announce that I am a candidate for the United States Senate,” Sanchez said outside a train station in Santa Ana, California, the newspaper reported, adding that U.S. Representative Xavier Becerra and former U.S. Army Secretary Louis Caldera, two other Latino Democrats from Southern California, are considering joining the race.

Boxer said earlier this year she would not seek reelection in 2016. Harris became the first major Democrat to announce a bid for the retiring senator’s seat.
