PHOENIX (AP) U.S. Sen. John McCain hasn't decided whether he'll run for a sixth term, but the former GOP presidential nominee said Tuesday that the Arizona Republican Party's censure of him over the weekend may just have provided the motivation to seek office again.

Sure that’s a good basis on which to make a decision. /s
This may be a good thing.
Wouldn’t it be more satisfying if this guy gets primaried instead of allowed to simply retire?
Yeah, let’s run to spite ‘em all. That’s representation...
Primary the RINO
As a Democrat?
What makes him think the GOP wants him to run after censuring him?
Now that's the way to "retire"!! ..senile old goat!
Everything is about his ego.
So this is a predictable response.
“Wouldnt it be more satisfying if this guy gets primaried instead of allowed to simply retire?”
It takes an average of $10 million to successfully run for a Senate office. It would be better if the guy running didn’t have to raise and additional $10 million to defeat McCain. McCain can probably come up with $20 million out of his own funds. If he spent enough, Satan could win a seat.
Yeah, right! We all know he was going to run anyway, if only to keep a conservative (or even a republican!) from taking his seat.
You’re exactly right. When JD Hayworth ran against him in the primary it was reported that McCain spent $23 million of his (wife’s) money defeating him. My question is why? A senate seat worth that much of a person’s personal wealth?
One thing is for sure. McCain won’t do any ‘running’. Even if he wants to.
“Yeah, lets run to spite em all.”
In my life, I have done “xyz” plenty of times just to spite people.
“A senate seat worth that much of a persons personal wealth?”
I couldn’t find his name on the list above of Senators who died in office, but my recollection was that Strom Thurmond was in his 90’s and obviously not long for this world. There were numerous photos of him in the Senate, asleep with drool coming out of his mouth. The governorship had just changed from R to D in his state and the party begged him to resign so they could appoint an R. He refused, and died just after the D took charge. They, of course, appointed a D.
He may even run for president...again and again and again...
Clear example of another DC megalomaniac. At the first sign or even a hint of that malady should disqualify anyone from public office and or cause a response from the people to immediately remove the person from public office. That would pretty much clean the house in DC.
What are the odd in Vegas that McCain “Jefford jumps” if the Senate ends up 50-50 in November?
“McCain spent $23 million of his (wifes) money defeating him. My question is why?”
You don’t seem to understand human emotions do you ?
suppose you own a furniture store for 30 years and then someone you know opens one up next to you.
Your response is to lower your price until your competitor dies.
O! Melanoma, where art thy sting?
I believe his idea is to hang onto the seat long enough, that his daughter gets to the right age, and he can just leave the seat to the daughter. I know this sounds awful stupid....but this is the one of the three three most dim senators that we have today.
....because spitting in the face of his party is what he lives for. Still don’t understand how the GOP gave this traitor bastard the nomination in 2008.
Perhaps but what does that make the people who put him there?
That is the exact thing I’ve thought for a couple of years. She’d be worse, if that’s possible.
