PHOENIX -

Republican Sen. John McCain says he's considering running for a sixth term in 2016, the year he turns 80.

In an interview Tuesday with radio station KFYI-AM in Phoenix, the Arizona Republican said that he's seriously giving a lot of thought to another bid for re-election.

On the Barry Young show on KFYI, McCain said, "I'm seriously thinking about maybe giving another opportunity for you to vote for or against me in a few years from now -- I'm seriously giving that a lot of thought."

Young: "So if some wide eyed journalist runs off and says McCain announced on air that he may run again for another term in the Senate, that would not be wrong?"

McCain: "That would not be wrong."

McCain says he's getting encouragement from businesses that are upset with the recent partial government shutdown. He had opposed the tea party tactic of linking gutting the health care law to keeping the government operating.

"Our approval rating of the Republican Party is at an all-time low so we know we have a lot of work to do, but we've been down before. We'll come back, I'm confident the Republican party represents the majority of America," McCain told FOX 10 after a town hall meeting later Tuesday.

 

McCain unsuccessfully sought the presidency in 2008, then easily won another Senate term in 2010. He has challenged President Barack Obama on foreign policy but has worked with Democrats on immigration legislation.
