Sen. John McCain brushed aside an impromptu remark on Friday that led some observers to question whether the Arizona Republican plans to seek re-election in 2016.
To clarify: I've long said I'll wait a few years before thinking about whether to seek re-election in 2016, he tweeted on Friday. Focused on our present challenges.
McCain, who was the 2008 GOP presidential nominee, was conducting an interview with The Wrap website when he reportedly made an off-the-cuff remark to a couple of Obama supporters, according to the publication.
At this point two supporters of President Obama cut in to thank McCain for being on our president's side for once in your life. McCain tells them, The president and I, he's in his last term, I'm probably in mine, the relationship we have had over the past three years is quite good. Quite good," the publication reported.
Appearing in On the Record with Greta Van Susteren, on Friday, McCain said that Russias Vladimir Putin outfoxed President Obama on Syria.
He also took a swipe at Putins chutzpah and penchant for appearing bare chested in photographs.
I think Ill start coming on this show with my shirt off to show how macho I am too by the way, McCain joked.
