And the world just keeps getting dumber. Why should someone from another family take the Senate seat when we can have the wife of McCain take over? That makes sense.
I love it when political big shots pull this play. It’s all about making sure the vested interests that are currently snuggled up with McCain stay snuggly.
As Arizonans prepare for their final salute to Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., Republicans and political pundits in the state privately tell Newsmax they expect the appointment of his wife, Cindy, to succeed him in the Senate.
Of course, no one in the Grand Canyon State who spoke to us wants to go on record discussing what will happen when the ailing McCain no longer holds his seat. But those who did, agree almost unanimously, Cindy McCain following John in the Senate through appointment by Gov. Doug Ducey, R-Ariz., is a near certainty.
“I’ve always assumed that was the arrangement,” said a friend of the McCain family since John’s 1973 return from captivity in Vietnam.
A former Republican senator who served with McCain agreed:
“I don’t know if this [succession] has been formalized, but that’s what people who know John tell me.”
