(CNN) - It looks like we won't have another Brown vs. Clinton Democratic presidential primary battle come 2016.
California Gov. Jerry Brown, who made bids for the Democratic nomination in 1976, 1980 and 1992, is ruling out a fourth run for the White House.

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."
