Jon Kyl Will Replace McCain In the Senate

Jon Kyl (R-AZ) to fill the late Sen.

"John Kyl is a dear friend of mine and John's", Cindy McCain tweeted.

Many wondered whether Ducey might appoint a member of McCain's family, either his wife, Cindy, or daughter, Meghan, to take his seat.

One of his first tasks will be to vote in President Donald Trump's nominee for United States Supreme Court, Brett Kavanaugh.

Doug Ducey has appointed former Sen.

"It's not the time for newcomers, and now is not the time for on-the-job training", Ducey said. "Now Sen. Kyl can cast a vote for Kavanaugh's nomination".

In the year since McCain was diagnosed with brain cancer, Ducey - who faces a tough re-election race this year - had refused to talk about who he might appoint to the seat.

"With almost two decades of experience in the Senate serving along side John McCain, Senator Kyl is prepared to hit the ground running", Ducey said. "His patience, for example, his meticulous preparation and thoroughness, are, I'm sorry to say, not qualities that I'll be remembered for, but they've been indispensable to the people of our state".

"Every single day that Jon Kyl represents Arizona in the United States Senate is a day when our state is being well-served".

If Kyl holds to his plan, Ducey will have to designate another Republican, by law, to keep the seat until 2020. 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.

The New York Times reports that Kyl has only committed to serve until the new Congress begins in January.

In December 2017, amid rumors McCain was considering resigning his seat, Ducey sent a harsh message to politicians lobbying for him for the appointment.

Woods said he spoke to Schumer briefly about a potential run at a memorial service for McCain in Washington last week.

Ducey asked Kyl if he would accept the appointment on August 25, the day that McCain died, according to two people close to the governor.

"There is no one in Arizona with the stature of Jon Kyl".

"Our friend and former colleague Senator Jon Kyl is one of the most serious, most expert, and most effective legislators with whom I've had the pleasure of serving". Honors his legacy while putting some major horsepower for Arizona in the seat, at least for now, ' he said.

Before the appointment, Kyl had been working as Kavanaugh's Senate guide, accompanying him on courtesy visits to Capitol Hill. Although Arizona has been a reliably Republican state, demographic trends have raised Democratic hopes of winning there in November and in future statewide elections.
