He told the party to "belatedly get its act together" and "demonstrate the leadership qualities which have been lacking". Mr McDonnell told the New Statesman he wanted to avoid a split "at all costs" and was happy to talk to unhappy MPs.

McCain's widow, Cindy, tweeted: 'Jon Kyl is a dear friend of mine and John's.

Former Sen. Jon Kyl has been shepherding Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh through the Senate. "He is a man without comparable peer", Mr. Ducey said.

"There is no one in Arionza with the stature of Sen".

"The America of John McCain has no need to be made great again because America was always great", she said. What an excellent choice! John McCain, during the burial service Sunday for the longtime Arizona Republican.

Bush, as well as his daughter Meghan McCain at a Washington ceremony the day before. However, he had said anyone who lobbied for the appointment before the senator's death would be disqualified.

Kyl, 76, served alongside McCain in the Senate for almost two decades and rose to the No. 2 position of Senate Republican whip. According to the New York Times, Kyl "has only committed to serving until the start of the next Congress, in January".

Since leaving the Senate, Kyl has worked as a lobbyist at Covington & Burling in Washington DC.

If McSally wins her race this year - and all polling suggests that is a very real possibility - that could allow Kyl to stay on, Ducey to appoint someone else who wants the seat in 2020 and 2022 - his chief of staff's name is often mentioned - or perhaps recruit someone from the business world.
