Politico mentioned North Coast Rep. Jared Huffman as a possible replacement for California's Attorney General Xavier Becerra as his departure to serve as the U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services leaves the seat open.

With President-elect Joe Biden nominating Becerra to serve as the secretary of Health and Human Services for his cabinet, California Gov. Gavin Newsom now has the opportunity to name Becerra's replacement.

Although Huffman wrote in a tweet that he was flattered to be mentioned in the Politico article as an "ambitious candidate," he said he wasn't "seeking or interested" in the appointment.

"I'm just a country lawyer, focused on natural resource issues here in the House," Huffman wrote.
