Jon Kyl to fill the Senate vacancy left by John McCain's August 25 death, the Arizona Republic reported, an appointment that will give Republicans a critical vote they had been missing since McCain returned to Arizona in December for treatment.

"As I contemplated who could best serve our state in US Senate, I kept coming back to one person", Ducey said.

"John Kyl is a dear friend of mine and John's".

Kyl has been helping guide Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's nomination through the Senate, and has been a lobbyist for a Washington law firm.

'I think McCain would be very happy with the pick. An election will be held to fill the final two years of McCain's term in 2020.

Kyl, 76, served with McCain during his 18 years in the U.S. Senate, rising to minority whip, the second-highest-ranking Republican senator in the chamber.

"He was a great man", claimed the conservative co-host of The View.

At a news conference where he was introduced as McCain's replacement, Kyl said in a response to a question that he's only met Trump once, though he noted he is working for the White House by serving as Kavanaugh's so-called "sherpa". Every single day that Jon Kyl represents #Arizona in the U.S. Senate is a day our state is well-served.

McCain's widow, Cindy McCain, confirmed the choice Tuesday ahead of the announcement, The Associated Press reported. John McCain, R-Ariz., left, and Senate Minority Whip Jon Kyl, R-Ariz., leave the chamber as the Senate rushes to negotiate a legislative path to avoid the so-called "fiscal cliff" of automatic tax increases and deep spending cuts that could kick in January 1., at the Capitol in Washington. Sen.

Later in the interview, Graham said the responses to McCain's death showed the appreciation people had for military service, and he outlined a "formula" for those who wanted to engage in public service. He and his wife, who said she met McCain once at a campaign event in Arizona, lamented McCain's grit, honest, personality and "everything he did for this country", they stated.

"I will not seek this seat in 2020, nor any other office in the future", Kyl said. "Kudos to Senator Kyl for his willingness to serve once again".

"John's voice will always come as a whisper over our shoulder - we are better than this, America is better than this", he said.

Picking Mr. Kyl solves a potential political problem for Mr. Ducey, who also is up for re-election in November.
