Kirkpatrick Announces Senate Run vs. McCain
Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick announced today she was running for the U.S. Senate. She did not mention the age of John McCain, who would be 86 at the close of his sixth term.

"Iíve lived in Arizona my whole life," Kirkpatrick said in an email to supporters. "Iíve seen it go through boom-and-bust cycles, and I see opportunities ahead. Our state is changing. And I think Arizonans deserve a real choice in the next election."

She said:

"Iíve got a vision for the future of Arizona -- and itís all about jobs. I know this isnít going to be an easy race. But Iíve got my boots on, my sleeves are rolled up, and Iím ready to work.

"Iím proud to have you with me. Your support over the years has made Team Kirkpatrick a force to be reckoned with. Today, Iím hoping you can take it to the next level.

"Today, weíre kick-starting this campaign. If you can, make a contribution -- of whatever size makes sense -- to get us off to a rip-roaring start.

"Iíve always worked to put Arizona first. And Iím excited to bring that work to the United States Senate.

"Thank you, as always, for standing with me."
