PHOENIX (AP) — U.S. Sen. John McCain says the Arizona Republican Party's censure of him over the weekend may just motivate him to run for a sixth term.

The censure vote came during a meeting of state committee members who cited McCain's voting record as being insufficiently conservative.

The members say McCain has campaigned as a conservative but has lent his support to immigration reform and funding President Barack Obama's national health care initiative.

In response Tuesday, McCain tells The Associated Press he has a strong conservative voting record and led the fight in the Senate against Obama's health care plan. He blames the censure on uninformed "extremist" party elements.

While he hasn't decided on a run for a sixth term in 2016, McCain says he is now "more seriously" considering it.
