New Report Suggests Who Might Succeed John McCain in Office

Published

With this being the final term of Arizona Sen. John McCain, who has stage four cancer, many folks have been wondering if he should step down or pass away in office, who would sit in his seat and finish his term.

According to new reports, it appears many expect his wife Cindy to succeed him.

Of course, no one in the Grand Canyon State who spoke to us [Newsmax] wants to go on record discussing what will happen when the ailing McCain no longer holds his seat. But those who did, agree almost unanimously, Cindy McCain following John in the Senate through appointment by Gov. Doug Ducey, R-Ariz., is a near certainty.

“I’ve always assumed that was the arrangement,” said a friend of the McCain family since John’s 1973 return from captivity in Vietnam.

A former Republican senator who served with McCain agreed:

“I don’t know if this [succession] has been formalized, but that’s what people who know John tell me.”

Folks who support McCain have been speaking with Gov. Ducey about picking Cindy as the right choice to succeed him in office.

Many individuals in the community not only want her to take McCain’s place because of her relationship to him and likely the shared values the two hold, but also because she is an accomplished business and community leader in her own right.

Cindy took over her father’s business, Hensley and Company, after her dad died in 2000. She was also a huge player in her husband’s many campaigns, working as a strategist and campaigner.

There’s also a bit of historical context for a spouse succeeding a husband in office, something that has happened a total of eight times with other senators since 1931.

Regardless of how one feels about McCain’s policies, it’s sad to see someone go through the suffering he’s currently enduring and to literally watch a man’s health and life wither away in the public eye.

While there’s widespread disagreement over many of the stances he’s taken on public policy over the years, he is a war hero who sacrificed much for his country, and that’s something we should all honor him for.
