I think this was a pretty easy one to call, but given the speculation a couple weeks ago, I figured I’d follow up.
LAS CRUCES, N.M. â€” 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.
â€œNo,â€ McCain said flatly, â€œIâ€™m not considering it.â€
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!
