John McCain Will Seek Re-election in 2010

How embarrassing. Appears McCain is trying real hard to finish off the GOP. A relative did indeed receive the email mentioned.

John McCain Will Seek Re-election in 2010
Susan Davis reports on politics.

Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain announced his 2010 re-election bid in an email to supporters, ending speculation that he might bow out of the Senate following his unsuccessful presidential campaign.

“Being the Republican nominee for president was one of the great honors of my life and an experience I will never forget. Some have wondered, after my hard fought presidential campaign, if I plan to run for re-election to the United States Senate,” McCain wrote, “I want you to know that I do intend to seek re-election.”

McCain cites the “magnitude of the financial crisis” as a reason for him to continue to serve in the Senate. The Arizona senator was criticized during his presidential bid for temporarily suspending his campaign to return to Washington, D.C., to engage in the financial sector bailout negotiations, which he supported.

However, McCain has become a prominent opponent of the current $800 billion-plus economic stimulus package expected on President Barack Obama’s desk later this week. He deemed it “generational theft” and advocated for scrapping the bill and starting over.

Democratic “proposals will not stimulate economic growth or create jobs,” McCain wrote in the e-mail, “With so much at stake, now is not the time to step away from my work in the Senate.”

The senator also solicits donations for his campaign committee, Friends of McCain, a separate financial entity from McCain’s Country First political action committee, which he launched in January to raise money for other Republican candidates.

What about the generational theft ...

... from the first bailout he supported, or does this bailout not have anything in it for him and his minions and that's why he opposes this one. I hope he gets tossed out of congress on his keister ! I don't know who in Arizona can step up though.

Real eyes realize real lies

We want our country back

Every year is a year for Ron Paul!

I would say this is a bad

I would say this is a bad thing but i would rather have John McCain than some Arizona liberal that votes Dem ALL the time. (ultimately i would want a C4L candidate running but that might not be the case)

Well, we'll just see what the voters in AZ think of that. Who

does C4L have running against him? There is still time.

mr maverik had a chance and

mr maverik had a chance and he flew out to washington and voted on the first bailout that started all of this mess. Lest face it, if Maverik McCain had won the election it would be the same thing Obama is doing now.

"Appears McCain is trying

"Appears McCain is trying real hard to finish off the GOP."

I hope so. It could be that the only way we will ever have a powerful liberty-oriented third party will be if the Republicans deevolve into the third party themselves.

No way....

won't he be like a 100 years old? He is a psychopath too.

Anyone have any

info on whether we have a Ron Paul Republican challenging this creep?

Maybe we'll get lucky

and he'll croak before we have to worry about him again.

Where do we sign up to work against this scumbag?

We need him OUT.,.

Of COURSE he's going to run

Of COURSE he's going to run for re-election. This worthless, parasitic leech of an individual has been living the high life on our dime for decades now. Why stop now? I hope someone runs against him and shows him for the slimy, corrupt douchebag that he is.

Flame is the campaign

I would never vote for John

I would never vote for John McCain. I hope to God he isn't reelected in Arizona (i don't want a dem though) and he better not try to get the nomination in 2012. I don't know what I would do if that happened..again. But we don't have anything to worry because Ron Paul will win in 2012!!!!

sure hope you folks in

sure hope you folks in Arizona send this baffoon packing!
