For everyone wondering whether John McCain would run for re-election to the U.S. Senate after that grueling presidential campaign — wonder no more.
He’s in. And he’s asking for help.
The Arizona Republican sent an email to supporters on Tuesday, making clear his intention to defend his Senate seat in 2010.
“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,” McCain wrote.
“With so much at stake, now is not the time to step away from my work in the Senate,” he said.
The senator extended an invitation to supporters to join his team and to contribute by “donating $25, $50, $100, $250, $500 or more to my re-election campaign.”
