McCain Running For Another Senate Term

Seriously John, don't go away mad... just go away...

(Associated Press) Sen. John McCain announced Tuesday that he will run for re-election in 2016, making official a move that has been widely expected for the Republican as he looks to extend his nearly three-decade career in the Senate.

McCain described his plans to run before an Arizona Chamber of Commerce luncheon in Phoenix, receiving a loud applause when he told the crowd: "With a full heart, I ask Arizonans again for their support as I seek re-election to the Senate. I'm as determined as ever to seek your trust."

His appearance before a pro-business crowd comes ahead of a race in which he will likely face a challenge from the right amid tea party dissatisfaction over his record in the Senate. The Republican Party is currently divided between pro-business and conservative factions, and McCain's announcement location put him in friendly territory as he begins the race.

McCain will be 80 by Election Day, but says he is in great shape and has much work to do in the Senate.
