Lindsey Graham pays tribute to his friend John McCain

Lindsey Graham pays tribute to his friend John McCain Lindsey Graham pays tribute to his friend John McCain

Graham concluded his remarks by saying that without McCain, he'll be on a lonely journey "for a while" and that he shouldn't be looked upon to replace his dear friend.

Senator McCain also expressed his deep gratitude and love of country. Ted Kennedy died in 2009 - nine years to the day that McCain died, and of the same form of brain cancer.

But now he was truly gone, his absence confirmed by his empty chair and desk along a much-traversed aisle. Bill Nelson, D-Fla. That led Washington Post writer Ashley Parker to refer to Trump as "president non grata" and one of her interview subjects for her newly published piece to speculate on why McCain's refusal to invite Trump to his funeral might be getting on his nerves. Only four of them know a Senate without McCain, who was elected in 1986 and had become a mentor and moral compass to newcomers. Trump's antipathy for McCain bordered on the personal.

Sen. John Cornyn, Texas Republican, said the Senate needs to "do this carefully" and to reach agreement on any tribute. Despite that, Hatch said there was no bitterness. Democrats and Republicans, including many members of the Senate Armed Services Committee that McCain once chaired, arrived to listen and support a visibly shaken colleague. I have been dreading this.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer has proposed renaming the Russell Senate Office building in McCain's honor, but some Republicans are wary of that idea.

Even more than surviving captivity as a POW, Yant says it was what McCain did after he was released that earned his admiration.

The White House issued no formal statement over the weekend about McCain's death, though one was drafted, according to U.S. media.

John McCain was well known for his support of Phoenix's professional sports teams during his time as a USA senator from Arizona, but his bond with Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald was especially strong. "He disagreed with the president in certain areas and wasn't too courteous about it", Inhofe told CNN.

"Honor is, in my view, doing the right thing at your own expense".

"It's as though I nearly lost my dad", said Will Holt of Phoenix.

"I do not cry for a ideal man", Graham said. Others have stood and given passionate speeches in praise of the Republican "Maverick" and Vietnam War hero. For the last time, the fiery Arizona senator stepped in to call for patriotism over politics when Trump would not. McCain, Coons said, "was a treasure and a challenge". Memorial services will be held at the Arizona Capitol in Phoenix on Wednesday where McCain will lie in state.

Former presidents Bush and Obama will deliver eulogies at a service Saturday at the National Cathedral.

President Trump has asked Vice-President Mike Pence to speak at a service at the US Capitol on Friday, and deputed chief of staff John Kelly, defense secretary James Mattis and national security advisor John Bolton to represent him at the Sunday service.

Mr. Graham told Russians not to get complacent.
