Memorial Service Held For Sen. John Mc Cain At North Phoenix Baptist Church

Sen. John McCain's widow on Tuesday said former Sen John Kyl will fill her late husband's seat.

"I'm hoping that the senator will consider serving longer" than this year, Ducey said. "Jon Kyl", said Ducey.

Kyl has been spotted around the Senate recently as the sherpa for Judge Brett Kavanaugh's Supreme Court confirmation, guiding Kavanaugh through meetings with senators.

Arizona law requires the governor to select a successor from the same party as the senator who vacated the seat - meaning this seat was always going to remain in Republican hands until 2020, when a special election will be held coinciding with the regularly scheduled statewide election.

Ducey said he received much advice about the appointment, "most of it unsolicited". That is the America that John McCain served and sacrificed for and that he believed was endangered by the racially tinged divisiveness and reflexive dishonesty of Donald Trump. He instead tweeted a short message offering his "deepest sympathies and respect" to the McCain family. Jon Kyl to the Senate following GOP Sen.

John McCain's final journey ended on a grassy hill at the U.S. Naval Academy within view of the Severn River and earshot of midshipmen present and future, and alongside a lifelong friend.

Sunday's military flypast by the Navy's Blue Angels marked the conclusion of an extraordinary five-day show of mourning for one of the most admired politicians in the United States. John McCain's seat in the upper chamber, The Arizona Republic reports. He said he agreed to serve briefly out of a "sense of duty" and will not run for the seat in 2020, when Arizona voters will have their first decision on who fills the remainder of McCain's seat through 2022.

The 76-year-old could be sworn in as early as Tuesday night.

McCain died late last month at age 81 following a yearlong battle with brain cancer.

Ducey said he opted to "pick the best possible person, regardless of politics". "He always had the opportunity everywhere he travelled to stay true to his values and that service needs to be recognized, because he was a hero to many, not just to the USA but around the world", said Sajjan. His work was primarily focused on tax issues affecting the company, but Kyl's firm, Covington & Burling, also lobbied the House and Senate to drum up support for the B-21 bomber, a stealth aircraft Northrop Grumman is building for the Air Force. "I trusted John with my life... and I think he would trust me with his".
