"We all hoped today would never come, But it has come".

"There's no replacing Sen".

Specific to John McCain, the Trump charge that: "He's not a war hero.he's called a war hero because he was captured". "But the law requires me to do it".

Gov. Doug Ducey made the announcement on Twitter minutes before a scheduled news conference.

While shepherding Supreme Court picks, Kyl has not indicated he's a Trump loyalist, saying in a February interview that the president is a "phenomenon that has to be dealt with".

One scheduled speaker at the service, Sen.

Jon Kyl is a dear friend of mine and John's. "There is no one in Arizona with the stature of senator Jon Kyl".

"He said find me four plots at the Naval Academy Cemetery where John and I and Cindy and Sally can be buried together", Jacob, referring to the wives of McCain and Lawson, told ABC affiliate KGTV in San Diego.

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

The main thing, though, is that Ducey didn't appoint anyone named McCain.

Appointing McCain's replacement was a tricky task for Ducey, as it required him to balance several competing concerns.




Then the seat will be up again for a full six-year term. If he has not changed his mind, it's likely he will not run for another term once the rest of McCain's term expires.

Filling McCain's seat marks a turning point in Arizona political history.

Bush and former first lady Michelle Obama shared a sweet moment at Sen. However, he had said anyone who lobbied for the appointment before the senator's death would be disqualified.

The choice will also have political consequences for Ducey.

Bracy said he was adamant about showing respect and honor for McCain, a person who fought and suffered for his country. "I think he's his own worst enemy", Kyl said of Trump, adding that he "could be much more effective if he were more politic, more diplomatic". 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.

Back in 2011, Kyl announced his intentions to retire from public service in 2013.

"I will do my best to ensure Arizonans are well represented in the Senate".

Kyl, 76, served with McCain during his 18 years in the U.S. Senate, rising to minority whip, the second-highest-ranking Republican senator in the chamber. "Sen. Kyl is a beacon of integrity".

He reached across party lines multiple times to warn of the dangers of waterboarding.
