Former senator Jon Kyl will inherit John McCain's seat in the upper chamber.

"There is no one in Arizona with the stature of Jon Kyl", Ducey said, noting how Kyl has been working with the White House over the past few months to advance the nomination of Supreme Court pick Brett Kavanaugh.

"John Kyl is a dear friend of mine and John's". "I think it was to his benefit she [did] so". As a three-term former Senator, he will be able to hit the ground running.

Former CIA chief John Brennan said in an interview Friday evening (just prior to Senator McCain's passing) that though Senator McCain and he often disagreed vehemently about foreign policy matters, Brennan never had any doubt about McCain's patriotism and commitment to the values that have made America great.

Doug Ducey, a Republican, is set to name Kyl at a 10 a.m. PDT news conference at the Arizona Capitol.

Senator McCain and President Trump had battled on the Senate floor on and off since the former Apprentice star and real estate mogul took office in 2017. John McCain and giving the GOP timely reinforcements. Jon Kyl to the Senate following GOP Sen.

Cindy McCain quickly offered her support, calling Kyl "a dear friend of mine and John's".

The agreement would have given the US and 10 other Pacific Rim countries access to 3.25 per cent of Canada's dairy market. Trudeau has previously said he could not sign a deal that has an expiry date on it, but that was when the U.S.

Kyl is a well-respected Republican in Arizona who spent 26 years representing the state before becoming an attorney and lobbyist. He and his wife, who said she met McCain once at a campaign event in Arizona, lamented McCain's grit, honest, personality and "everything he did for this country", they stated.

Many assumed that he was referring to President Donald Trump, who was pointedly not invited to the service.

McCain died August 25 of brain cancer.

McCain's experiences in Vietnam would greatly alter the person he became upon his return, and his career in politics reflected that change. "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 US but around the world", said Sajjan.

Picking Mr. Kyl solves a potential political problem for Mr. Ducey, who also is up for re-election in November.

Meghan McCain honours father at funeral service in Washington, D.C. By picking a "caretaker" replacement - i.e., someone who would not seek reelection in 2020 - Ducey could avoid alienating either contingent, and allow Republican primary voters a chance to choose the seat's long-term occupant.
