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

"There's no replacing Sen". Trump, wearing a white "Make America Great Again" hat, and having tweeted his morning complement of bile, directed at Hillary Clinton, Robert Mueller, and his own Justice Department, had departed to play golf.

But Ducey said at the news conference it's not clear whether Kyl will remain in the Senate through 2020.

Petraeus said McCain was a man of "great courage, unshakable determination, and unwavering devotion to our country and those who defend it", according to remarks released by the family.

Those offering tributes or readings during the funeral service included Sen. "Jon Kyl", said Ducey.

In a prepared statement, the governor's office said Kyl's "expertise on water and natural resource issues will be very beneficial to our state as we face new challenges in those areas", noting that Arizona State University's Kyl Center for Water Policy is named for him.

"Governor Ducey has selected Senator Jon Kyl as Senator McCain's replacement". What an excellent choice! The Arizona GOP is sharply divided between a Trumpist majority, and a more "Flake-y" fringe.

McCain died late last month at age 81 following a yearlong battle with brain cancer. That's when McCain's current term is set to expire.

Filling McCain's seat marks a turning point in Arizona political history. During his recent private funeral in Arizona, former Sen.

Many wondered whether Ducey might appoint a member of McCain's family, either his wife, Cindy, or daughter, Meghan, to take his seat. However, he had said anyone who lobbied for the appointment before the senator's death would be disqualified.

"I can not think of anything I've done in politics of effect, any cause I've engaged in, that John was not there, that I was not his wingman". "I like people that weren't captured" burnished the veneration accorded to the departed senator, even while adding to the loathing directed at Mr. Trump. It is now up to the rest of us in a time when these values are truly threatened to live up to his example and serve a cause greater than ourselves.

Kyl's appointment means the Republican attorney who had been guiding President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, through the confirmation process will now have a vote on Kavanaugh's confirmation. He works for the Washington, D.C., law and lobbying firm Covington and Burling, LLP. Her retired in 2013.

"It has been an absolute honor for me to represent the people of Arizona", he had continued.

In 2006, he was recognized by Time magazine as one of America's "Ten Best Senators".

Kyl committed to the seat only through January and said he would not run for the seat in 2020, when voters will decide who fills the remainder of McCain's seat through 2022.
