The Arizona Republican said during an Independence Day visit to Prescott that the city is the perfect location because it's a central growth area with plenty of needs.

The new office opened to the public Monday.

The courthouse steps in Prescott were where McCain announced his candidacy for last year's presidential race.

McCain, who will seek a fifth Senate term in 2010, also has offices in Phoenix, Tempe and Tucson.
