Kyl To Replace McCain In Senate

Cindy McCain’s family fortune helped husband John’s career

A day after a nationally televised memorial service at Washington's National Cathedral brought together a remarkable gathering of luminaries from both parties - including three former presidents, but not the current one - Sunday's ceremony was designed more as a family affair, including the military family to which McCain proudly belonged.

Doug Ducey will announce on Tuesday that he's appointing former Sen.

Just as Barack Obama, George Bush and Bill Clinton came together to laud the late Arizonan senator, the notably absent president hit up a golf course in Virginia.

Kyl, who served in the U.S. Senate from 1995-2013, has been one of the "sherpas" escorting Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh through the Senate confirmation process.

"Now Senator Kyl can cast a vote for Kavanaugh's confirmation", Mr. Ducey said.

Jon Kyl will be an extraordinary Senator representing an extraordinary state, Arizona.

Kyl has agreed to step in for McCain through the end of this year, the Republic said.

IF Ducey loses and Kyl doesn't want to continue, Ducey will have to appoint a replacement before his term ends.

"The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great", she said as part of a speech that routinely took jabs at Trump.

McCain, who died of brain cancer on August 25, was last re-elected in 2016; his term will expire in 2022. Jon Kyl to succeed Sen. "But, my father never cared what they thought, and even that small number still have the opportunity as long as they draw breath to live up to the example of John McCain", she continued.

"I do know I will not seek this seat in 2020, nor any other office in the future", Kyl said.

For now, Kyl will pad Republicans' margin in the narrowly divided Senate.

"When people of that stature have an opportunity to think ahead and wanting to be together it really is a statement of friendship and support and integrity", said Jacobs, whose father served with McCain's father, U.S. Navy Adm. John Sydney McCain Jr., on submarines during World War II.

McCain's burial plot was next to his classmate and friend, Admiral Chuck Larson, a former commander of US Pacific Command who died in 2014, according to the McCain family.

Kyl served four terms in the U.S. House of Representatives before he was first elected to the Senate in 1994. He works for the Washington, D.C., law and lobbying firm Covington and Burling, LLP.
