PHOENIX, May 31 (UPI) -- Former Republican presidential hopeful John McCain says he's not taking anything for granted in seeking a fifth U.S. Senate term in Arizona in 2010.
After spending two years on the presidential campaign trail, in recent months McCain has been crisscrossing Arizona to reconnect with state voters, The Arizona Republic reported Sunday.
McCain has retooled his Web site, opened a Senate campaign office in Phoenix and raised $3.6 million for his war chest, the Republic reported.
"I'm very pleased with the response that I've gotten when traveling around the state, so I'm confident I'll do well," McCain said. "But I'm not taking anything for granted."
McCain so far faces two Republican primary challengers. Chris Simcox is the founder of the border watch group Minuteman Civil Defense Corps, while challenger Jim Deakin describes himself as a Navy veteran and "successful small businessman."
