Washington (AP) John McCain, who says he took the financial crisis so seriously that he suspended many campaign activities last week, stayed quiet in the senate when it came time to vote on a rescue plan.

McCain and Barack Obama both left the campaign trail Wednesday and returned to Washington to vote on the historic 700-billion-dollar plan. Both voted for it.

Obama used the opportunity before his colleagues and TV cameras to lay out his rationale and explain his economic vision. But McCain didn't speak about the measure from the chamber.

McCain's Senate Chief of Staff says, the Arizona lawmaker worked hard with his colleagues on the legislation and “didn't see the need to speak on the bill.”
