McCain Not Planning 2012 Primary Endorsement

Senator John McCain (R-AZ) “will stay out of next year’s presidential primary,” according to The Hill.

McCain said former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, his running mate of three years ago, would be competitive against other Republican candidates but stopped short of endorsing her.

“I intend, as is the tradition of losers, to remain out of the primaries,” McCain quipped to reporters Wednesday morning at a breakfast hosted by The Christian Science Monitor.

On a more serious note, McCain added: “I just think it would be inappropriate for me to endorse in the primary.”

Regarding Palin, McCain said he had not “seen any indications as to whether she will run or not.”
