Final farewells to Sen. John McCain begin at Arizona Capitol

Warren Beatty Will Be A Pallbearer At John McCain’s Funeral

"He's crawling the damn walls because they're running story after story on John McCain and he hates it because he's not the center of attention".

A hearse bearing McCain's body arrived with a police escort shortly before 10 a.m. local time (1700 GMT) for a private wreath-laying ceremony honouring the senator, who died of brain cancer on Saturday at his Arizona ranch.

Users who searched for the Russell building in Google Maps during the error period were instead given a listing for the "McCain Senate Office Building", and the map labeled the building as such. And aside from his despicable views on Jim Crow and civil rights, Russell was a pretty decent senator - one who sagely advised his close friend, President Lyndon Johnson, that sending large numbers of American troops to Vietnam would be a bad mistake. Wednesday would have been his 82nd birthday.

For some Arizona residents, McCain has been a political fixture for their entire lives.

Other military members in uniform congregated on the Capitol plaza.

In the rotunda, Sen.

John McCain in Washington, DC. Their first skirmish happened two years earlier in the halls of the Senate, where McCain blasted Obama for "posturing" on one of his favorite issues: lobbying reform.

John McCain inside the Arizona Capitol on August 29 for the first of several memorial tributes planned for the war hero and two-time Republican presidential candidate.

The ceremony included remarks from Gov. Doug Ducey and former U.S. Sen.

The two Republicans shared a bond over their military backgrounds; both believed in the need for USA military intervention in foreign conflicts and grew close traveling the world together.

Meghan McCain patted the coffin with one hand while holding the other over her stomach. We know your father was very proud, and so is the state of Arizona.

"I will miss him as a friend, and a strong force for America, and the world", Kyl said. The single mom and Democrat brought a bouquet of flowers and said she had always looked up to McCain. John is probably the only politician who could get us to set aside politics and come together as a state and as a nation - as we have. Veterans overwhelmingly call McCain a hero.

Initially, Trump made no statement on McCain himself, only wishing his family well in wake of his death.

Eudy, who helped plan the memorial services, did not say who made the decision or how it was conveyed, but a source with knowledge of the funeral arrangements added several longtime McCain staffers were also removed from the invitation list in recent days by Eudy. Privileged that when he was back home to run into him at the movies or at a ball game or at Starbucks just like he was anyone of else. Privileged to proudly call him a fellow Arizonan.

A conservative political scientist says a Republican defeat in the Arizona Senate race is unlikely. "It's just not natural". "It's a fight all Americans are obligated to continue on John's behalf".

McCain's lifelong friend and former Congressman Jim Kolbe placed a wreath by his side before Sen. Jon Kyl, plus a benediction from Sen. One source even said, "They had a good friendship".

The final words of the ceremony were read by Father Reese.

McCain's wife, Cindy, widely seen as a possible candidate for appointment to succeed her husband, led the procession of relatives and dignitaries filing past his casket.

The viewing will go on as long as people are waiting in line, Rick Davis, McCain's former presidential campaign manager, said Monday.
