Longtime US Senator and war hero John McCain lies in state

What Happens With John McCain’s Senate Seat?

Luis says he was always impressed with McCain's knowledge and enthusiasm for sports - noting he never wanted to sit in VIP suites in stadiums, he always loved hanging with the people in the bleachers. "So, thank you very much".

Republican Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee said that McCain deserves "a significant memorial" in the nation's capital but that senators have time to decide what the best memorial is.

Joe Freedman worked as an intern for John McCain in the 1980s when McCain was a first-term Congressman.

Arizona's first responders lined the plaza as the Arizona National Guard team carried McCain inside the Capitol. She said she liked how McCain didn't act like he was above others, and praised all he did for veterans.

For some Arizona residents, McCain has been a political fixture for their entire lives.

"We're in a new era now", Corker said Monday.

While Barry Goldwater was an Arizona native, McCain was "Arizona's favorite adopted son", the governor said on would have been McCain's 82nd birthday.

Sen. John McCain to lie in state in Capitol Rotunda Friday
The American flag that flies above the White House was at full staff on Monday-shortly after it was lowered in honor of Sen. Flag Code states the flag should be lowered "on the day of death and the following day for a Member of Congress".

And on whether he would have played if he was not sick: "He was sick and today, he was sick". "No problem with the player".

He then quipped about another tribute for Mr. McCain, who, while a fierce supporter of rank-and-file troops, was a terror to Pentagon officials who appeared before the Armed Services Committee - particularly over wasteful spending: "I'd like to name the Pentagon after him, just to get back at them".

Extending the invitations to the last two Presidents is also a slap in the face to the current Oval office attendant who did not receive an invite to the services.

Ducey said to the rest of the world, McCain "was Arizona".

Ducey said McCain's fight for America wasn't over adding "it's a fight all Americans are obligated to continue on his behalf".

Sens. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) are co-sponsoring a resolution to rename the Russell Senate Office Building after the late Sen.

The final words of the ceremony were read by Father Reese. "I'm going to do the best I can and try to honor him for the wonderful man that he is". I am so honoured to have been able to call Senator McCain my friend, and am grateful to his family for allowing my family to be a part of their lives.

After President Donald Trump took to Twitter to claim a "52 percent overall" approval rating just one day after Senator John McCain's death and hours after a gunman opened fire at a video game tournament in Florida, many of his followers pointed out how he may be the only US president not to be invited to two funerals of prominent political figures and one royal wedding. Webb said he is from Cochise County in the southeastern corner of the state and he relished the five times he got a chance to meet McCain when the senator came to his county.
