After much speculation that his failed presidential bid would be his last campaign, Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) has decided to run for re-election to his Senate seat in 2010. McCain, 72, announced the decision during a meeting Tuesday evening with top ally Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.), advisers Rick Davis, Charlie Black, Carla Eudy and other aides. The meeting, according to a knowledgeable source, took place off the Hill in a private office. McCain will also restart his leadership political action committee, according to the source. Though not at Tuesday’s meeting, one source close to McCain said that running for re-election “is his intention.” “He’s ready to get back,” this source said. “He likes the game. He likes the deals.”
