John McCain To Hold January Fundraiser For 2016 senate Reelection
BuzzFeed ^ | 01/10/2014 | Kate Nocera

WASHINGTON — In the clearest indication yet that Sen. John McCain is gearing up to run for a sixth term, the Arizona Republican is holding a Washington fundraiser at the end of January.

McCain is not up for reelection until 2016, but appears to be kicking things off early. An invitation from “Friends of John McCain” bills a Jan. 28 fundraiser as the senator’s “first DC re-elect reception” at Johnny’s Half Shell in Washington. Requested donations range between $1,000 and $5,200.

In December, McCain hosted a New York fundraiser as he “[considered] running for re-election to the U.S. Senate.” McCain said on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno this past week he was “looking very seriously” at another run.

“I think there is a lot going on. I’m at the top of my game so I’m very happy to have the chance,” McCain said.

McCain’s Communications Director Brian Rogers told BuzzFeed in an email the senator had not yet made a firm decision about running.

“As he’s said, Sen. McCain hasn’t made a final decision,” Rogers said.

Update: This post has been updated to include a comment from Sen. McCain’s communications director.

Oh, that's interesting. He's running to be a New York senator? When did he move?

Suggest he move it to a retirement home specializing in treating memory loss problems.

Then check in after the meeting as he’s clearly forgotten why he was elected in the first place.

If H.R. 1606 fails to become law, your Web site or blog could be shut down for the 30 days prior to a primary election and the 60 days prior to a general election should you express "electioneering communications."

Arizona guy, Please tell everyone you know in Arizona to support a candidate other than Juan McPain in the GOP primary for this Senate seat. Every conservative US citizen is sick to death of McCain’s backstabbing ways.

Who could vote for this guy? Really, who could possibly think that a mostly demented liar would be a good person to have in charge? Of anything? I guess the best answer to my question would be, a Democrat.

McCain, please send me a prepaid envelope that I can enclose my contribution.

I will just tape it on the box of BS that I will be sending him.

Maybe some rocks too.

McCain has been acting the very same for as long as he’s been in office. The Arizona voters are to blame and they’ll vote him in again. They’re dopey
