John McCain this evening just a few days shy of his 82nd birthday. We all know his resume: Navy service, including his time as a POW; US Senator; presidential candidate in 2000 and nominee in 2008. We remember the moments he bucked his party as well as the times we wish he had. The Governor of Arizona will appoint his successor, possibly one of the current contenders for Flake’s seat per some speculation.
