In the United States was buried with honors John McCain

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.

Minutes later, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey congratulated Kyl on the appointment via Twitter.

"Senator Kyl is prepared to hit the ground running". "Now Sen. Kyl can cast a vote for Kavanaugh's nomination". "Kudos to Senator Kyl for his willingness to serve once again".

That said, Kyl has not ruled out remaining in the seat until 2020. An election will be held to fill the final two years of McCain's term in 2020.

Kyl benefits from a long Washington experience, having served a total of 26 years in Congress, 18 of them alongside McCain.

The decision was revealed by McCain's widow, Cindy, who wrote in a tweet: "Jon Kyl is a dear friend of mine and John's".

Family and friends, along with the Naval Academy's class of 1958 and its current student body, bade a final farewell in a private service at the Naval Academy chapel before McCain, who died August 25 at age 81, was interred in a cemetery on the academy grounds.

In an impassioned eulogy for her father, six-term Arizona senator John McCain, Meghan McCain delivered several blows to sitting President Donald Trump, who was not invited to the beloved senator's funeral.

McSally, a current House member and former military fighter pilot, was one of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's dream recruits previous year.

U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ) speaks after being awarded the 2017 Liberty Medal by former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden (unseen) at the Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S., October 16, 2017. Obama had defeated McCain in the 2008 US Presidential election and earlier the Arizona Senator lost the Republican nomination to George Bush in mid-2000. "So I just said, 'That's fine, good, ' and he said, 'By the way, John is going to be next to me'".

"I look forward to welcoming Jon Kyl back to the Senate", he said.

'I think McCain would be very happy with the pick.

Kyl, who was the No. 2 Republican in the Senate before his retirement in 2013, is a staunch conservative who is close to Senate leaders.

"His own attitude, the way he faced death with characteristic fearlessness and perspective, really comforted me", Lieberman said.
