No One Term Pledge For McCain

0

I think this was a pretty easy one to call, but given the speculation a couple weeks ago, I figured I’d follow up.

From Politico:

LAS CRUCES, N.M. — John McCain stated unequivocally in an interview with Politico on Wednesday that he would not pledge to serve only a single four-year term, rejecting a suggestion that some allies believe would allay questions about his age and underscore his nonpartisan message of putting country first.

“No,” McCain said flatly, “I’m not considering it.”

As McCain had stated before, anybody who agreed to such a pledge would essentially be a lame duck on day one.

So that’s that!
