McCain died at age 81 on Saturday after losing his battle with glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer.

McCain's memorial services will take place over five days in three different cities.

Ducey said that McCain "brought us above politics", so with "humor and humanity and without compromising the principles he held so dear".

Other senators expressed hesitation at renaming Russell as a knee-jerk response to McCain's passing. Wednesday would have been his 82nd birthday. "Our hearts and prayers are going to the family of Senator John McCain. and we very much appreciate everything Senator McCain has done for our country".

Family, friends and former colleagues of the late Sen. 2, making him the ninth American commander out of 18 total to lead global forces in Afghanistan since 2002.

Last night, as I discussed at the end of a long post on Tuesday's primaries, Rep. Martha McSally won the Republican nomination to fill the Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Black curtains hung in the rotunda.

She continued: "Tonight, we look ahead and continue fighting to uphold the values we all share: a fair shot at the American dream and an unwavering commitment to the Arizona we love". She said she liked how McCain didn't act like he was above others, and praised all he did for veterans.




"I grew up where a handshake was a contract and your word was your bond", Riordan said.

"Yesterday I asked my son who his hero was". Bob Corker said he was "all for" renaming the building in McCain's honor but that "there'll probably be some discussion about that" in both parties. "So, I was really taken aback by it".

Judith Hatch, a veteran from Phoenix, started the day by handing out flags to those who were assembled. John McCain will lie in state, guarded by DPS troopers atop the Arizona state seal, for 24 hours.

Ward, who also aligned herself to Trump, also claimed that McCain's announcement that he was stopping cancer treatment was timed in order to hurt her chances at winning the primary.

"One important thing about him that a lot of people shouldn't forget is that you can disagree as long as you're not disagreeable", Webb said. "If you believe in something, stand up for it, whether it's popular or not".

On Thursday, the senator will be moved by motorcade to North Phoenix Baptist Church for a memorial service celebrating his life and legacy.

The memorial service will see multiple tributes, readings and musical performances, including a tribute from former Vice President Joe Biden. According to a statement, McCain's "family, friends, along with national, state, local and tribal officials, and business leaders from across the state of Arizona have been invited to attend the service".
