Citing economic crisis, McCain seeks support for Senate re-election bid
John McCain is telling supporters he is definitely running for another term in the US Senate after the bitter disappointment of losing his presidential bid -- and he's saying that the economic crisis was the clincher.
"The magnitude of the financial crisis that many American families are facing makes it clear to me that I want to continue to serve our country in the Senate," he says in the email, sent Tuesday night and which also serves as a pitch for campaign cash.
McCain joined all but three Republicans in voting Tuesday against the $838 billion stimulus package in the Senate, and has been vocal in his disdain.
"The economic challenges currently confronting our nation are immense and unfortunately, the Democrats in Congress propose addressing these challenges through increased spending that wastes billions of taxpayers dollars and saddles our children and grandchildren with a staggering debt," the email says. "Their proposals will not stimulate economic growth or create jobs. While the leader of the Democratic Party, President Obama, has pledged to change business as usual in Washington and spoken of bipartisanship, I have been saddened to watch as Congressional Democrats try to use their majority to advocate more of the same failed policies and wasteful spending of the past. With so much at stake, now is not the time to step away from my work in the Senate."
"As always, I anticipate a tough re-election challenge. But with your help, we will counter those efforts and put forth an aggressive campaign by registering new voters, reaching out to Democrats, Independents and Republicans, and again earning the support of Hispanic and Native American voters in Arizona."

He voted for the first bailout. I hope they throw him out.
