|Description||Despite swirling rumors to the contrary, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is set to run for a fourth term in 2004, according to several sources familiar with his thinking. |
One McCain adviser said the Senator is "all but certain" to run again.
"I donít sense he would like to walk away from the table when he still had a hand to play policy-wise," the adviser explained.
"He hasnít made a final decision, but he is inclined to run," confirmed McCain spokesman Marshall Wittmann.
Brian Murray, executive director of the Arizona Republican Party, said McCain has been "planning fundraising events and putting more money into [his] federal account."
But even those who know him best caution that McCain largely keeps his own counsel and could change his mind quickly.
Wittmann expects an official decision by this spring.
