"There is much-unfinished business, including confirmation of President Trump's nominees for judicial and executive branch positions, and I look forward to getting to work on behalf of my fellow Arizonans", Kyl said in a statement. "Jon Kyl", said Ducey.

But he only committed to serve until January 2019, raising the prospect of requiring Ducey to again appoint a replacement until the seat is up for re-election in November 2020. Obama had defeated McCain in the 2008 US Presidential election and earlier the Arizona Senator lost the Republican nomination to George Bush in mid-2000.

Kyl has agreed to step in for McCain through the end of this year, the Republic said. "He was a great man", she said during the first eulogy.

Kyl said today at the news conference with Ducey that he doesn't have a relationship with Trump. Every single day that Jon Kyl represents #Arizona in the U.S. Senate is a day our state is well-served. John McCain's (R-Ariz.) term, a choice praised by Cindy McCain.

Jon Kyl, shortly before he retired from the Senate.

Mrs. McCain expressed her support for the Kyl pick Tuesday, calling him "a dear friend" and saying his willingness to fill the seat was "a great tribute" to her husband. McCain's opposition to repealing Obamacare was just one of many problematic moments for the Republican Party.

The sub-text and the pointed reference to the Trump slogan of wanting to "make America great" was the underlying theme of the memorial service, which nearly canonized McCain, while decrying the current White House incumbent and the deplorable narrative about Trump.

"I think anyone that has served knows senator McCain's service and what he went through and his life of service". The late senator died August 25 at the age of 81 after a long battle with brain cancer.

Representative Steny Hoyer, the No. 2 Democrat in the House of Representatives, said given that the Arizona governor was "not going to appoint somebody who is going to vote with us, it's a pretty good appointment".

McCain was a prisoner of war during the Vietnam War and spent more than five years as a POW in Hanoi. In 2016, the two shared an embrace at the National Museum of African American History and Culture opening in Washington, D.C.

"When others were looking into Vladimir Putin's eyes, with an eye of understanding him and reaching accommodation with him, John, of course, said: I looked into his eyes and saw KGB", Kyl said.
