(CNN) - It looks like we won't have another Brown vs. Clinton Democratic presidential primary battle come 2016.
Asked about speculation of a potential candidacy in 2016, Brown told reporters Tuesday that "No, that's not in the cards. Unfortunately."
The question came from a reporter from the Los Angeles Times, at a news conference in Riverside, California.
"Actually, California is a lot more governable," Brown added.
The Governor, who turns 76 this April, first ran for president at age 38, winning a couple of primaries over eventual Democratic nominee Jimmy Carter. He ran again four years later, finishing far behind President Carter and Sen. Ted Kennedy. In 1992, he launched a third campaign for the White House, winning a bunch of primaries and caucuses against eventual nominee Bill Clinton, whom he tangled with on the campaign trail.
Brown served as California Governor from 1974-1982, Oakland mayor from 1998-2006, California Attorney General from 2006-2010, and was elected Governor again four years ago.
Brown's up for re-election this November. While he's raised millions for such a bid, he's remained vague about whether he'll run again. Asked about his intentions at the Tuesday news conference, Brown said "we have time," adding that "I'm not running yet."
