Cindy Mccain

(Daily Caller) Arizona Republican Gov. Doug Ducey is tasked with appointing a Republican to replace Sen. John McCain, who served in the Senate for 32 years and passed away Saturday. Ducey resisted discussing possible replacements when the senator was alive, even as he underwent treatment for a fatal cancerous brain tumor caused by glioblastoma, and criticized candidates outwardly lobbying for the position. 

Some speculate that McCain’s wife, Cindy  may be a possible replacement, although conservatives from the base are pressuring Ducey, who will go up for reelection himself in November, to appoint someone who is loyal to President Donald Trump to fill the vacant seat, according to reports by The Wall Street Journal.

The replacement, who will be selected by gubernatorial appointment under Arizona state law, must be a member of McCain’s party, and will fill the vacant seat for the next two years, until a special election in 2020 can determine who will complete the remainder of McCain’s term in the Senate. The seat will be up for reelection for a complete six-year term in 2022.

Other potential appointees include Kirk Adams, Ducey’s chief of staff; Barbara Barrett, former gubernatorial candidate and wife of retired Intel Corp. Chief Executive Craig Barrett; Karrin Taylor Robson, who was appointed to the Arizona Board of Regents by Ducey in 2017; and Eileen Klein, who was appointed as state treasurer by the governor in 2018, according to the Arizona Central.

Ducey himself will not be replacing McCain in the Senate, according to comments released earlier in 2018, Politico reported. He tweeted his sympathies and support to the McCain family Saturday after the senator’s passing, calling McCain “A giant. An icon. An American hero,” but he did not mention anything about a potential appointment to his spot.

  1. We The People would like to see and have Sheriff Joe Apiro who knows the laws inside and out and would be an excellent candidate to represent the residents of AZ. Were counting on you Governor Ducey by doing the right thing for President Trump. Were sick and tired of the unpleasant attacks that McCain distastefully displayed towards our sitting President and don’t need his wife continuing where he left off. Anonymous

    The Kennedy’s aside, elected seats are not family dynasties. McCain was a turncoat Rhino. His wife was the one probably pulling him to the left. Appoint Arpaio and make liberal’s heads spin.

  3. This is ridiculous haven’t we learn enough, we do not need another McCain. That thinking, that they are entitled is part of the problems that has lead our country to the problems we have today. I dont know about AZ because I don’t live there but what about Joe Apiro I do know him he was a good honest Sheriff from AZ.

  4. Questions for Arizonians: Now that the economy is booming, employment is up for all races and sexes, and unemployment is down across the board, what is the most glaring problem facing your state? Could it be foreign nationals illegally entering your state, trashing the environment plus trafficking drugs, guns and people…and also committing crimes against the citizens of Arizona? Now, which of the potential selections to complete Sen. McCain’s term in the Senate has the most experience and expertise in securing the border and stopping the influx of illegal aliens? Easy…Sheriff Joe Arpaio! QED…Governor Ducey should have an easy and logical choice. And then let the other candidates fight it out for Flake’s spot in November. (Psssssttt, I think that doing this would also be a big boost for Kelli Ward.)

  5. I’ll be very surprised if the people’s interests are upheld. The swamp feeds itself and I’ll not be surprised if she is selected.

    Why are they not having a special election? Isn’t that the fair way to do it? Now we know why he didn’t quit.

    I have written Gov. Ducey on his website to NOT do this. He is friends with the McCain’s.

    There are better choices and we definitely do not need another McCain and she will follow how her husband voted. It will be hate our president all over again. Personally I am tired of the name and the man who could not give up his seat until his death because he was so hate ridden over our president that he left Arizonans without any representation when the Governor could have put someone in to represent the people of AZ. This is very telling if Gov. Ducey selects Cindy McCain. Here are the real conservatives that should be top of the list: Rep. John Shadegg and Matt Salmon. The rest are in this part of the list and notice who they list first in the Arizona Republic liberal paper:
    The Arizona Republic listed a number of names that have been floated as potential appointees to replace McCain. They are:

    Cindy McCain, 64, the late senator’s wife. She is a philanthropist and business leader and could represent her husband’s legacy while pursuing her own priorities in Washington, such as her advocacy against human trafficking.
    Kirk Adams, 45, Ducey’s chief of staff and a former state lawmaker. He ran unsuccessfully for Congress in 2012.
    Barbara Barrett, 67, chair of the Aerospace Corporation and former US ambassador to Finland. She was the first woman Republican to run for governor of Arizona in 1994.
    Jon Kyl, 76, who from 1995 to 2013 served alongside McCain in the Senate.
    The Arizona Republic also mentions real estate development company president Karrin Taylor, former Rep. John Shadegg, state Treasurer Eileen Klein, and former Rep. Matt Salmon.

    One possible contender would have been Republican Rep. Martha McSally, but she is already running for the Senate this year to take Flake’s seat. The other was Dr. Kelli Ward, also running for that seat.

  8. what about sheriff Joe Apiro?
    hell he is running for the senate right now.
