Despite prior negotiations to join The View, Meghan McCain will not being joining the daytime show as a new cohost.

"I am not joining," the 29-year-old liberal Republican recently told Refinery29. "I have the most utmost respect for everyone at The View. The show was amazing for my career for a long time. But, right now, I really love my job at TakePart Live. I genuinely mean this: I really love coming to work every day and working with people in their 20s to make a really rowdy news show."

Earlier this month, E! News reported that John McCain's daughter was being considered by producers for one of the remaining co-host positions after it was announced that Sherri Shepherd and Jenny McCarthy are leaving the show.

"Any specific names at this point are rumor and speculation," an ABC rep said at the time. "There are no decisions and we are not ready to make any announcements."

While McCain won't be joining The View full time, former co-host Rosie O'Donnell is coming back to the show. She'll join Whoopi Goldberg, who will be the only returning co-host next season.
