McCain Considering Seeking Reelection In 2016


mccain-johnSen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) said today that he is considering running for another term in 2016, when he would be 80 years old.

“I’m seriously thinking about maybe giving another opportunity for you to vote for or against me in a few years from now,” McCain said on KFYI-AM in Phoenix. “I’m seriously giving that a lot of thought.”

Asked by host Barry Young to clarify if he was saying he might run again, McCain said: “That would not be wrong.”

The New York Times’s Mark Leibovich, who is in Arizona following McCain, first tweeted the news.

McCain, the 2008 GOP presidential nominee, is in his fifth term. He has never taken less than 56 percent of the vote and easily dispatched a primary challenge in 2010 from former congressman J.D. Hayworth.
