John McCain

John Sidney McCain III (born August 29, 1936) was an American politician serving as the senior United States Senator from Arizona, a seat to which he was first elected in 1986. He was the Republican nominee for President of the United States in the 2008 election, which he lost to Barack Obama. McCain graduated from the United States Naval Academy in 1958 and followed his father and grandfather—both four-star admirals—into the U.S. Navy.

    Luxe Phoenix Condo of the Late Sen. John McCain Available for $3.1M

    Caption Close John McCain's luxury condo in Phoenix is now on the market for $3.1 million. The listing comes six months after the Republican senator lost his battle with brain cancer. Located in the city's well-heeled Biltmore area, the condo served as John and Cindy McCain's primary residence since 2007, when they sold their larger home in Central Phoenix to downsize. This unit in The Residences at Camelback building offers an abundance of security and privacy, features that were likely a priority for the then-presidential candidate and his Secret Service detail. The McCains' condo was created by combining two units. The result? A 6,500-square-foot residence with five bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms,

    Mark Kelly announces run for McCain Senate seat in Arizona

    PHOENIX — Retired astronaut Mark Kelly, who rocketed to the national spotlight when his congresswoman wife Gabrielle Giffords was shot in a failed assassination attempt, announced Tuesday he's running to finish John McCain's last term in the U.S. Senate. Kelly, 54, is a top Democratic recruit to take on Republican Martha McSally in one of the most closely contested Senate races of the 2020 election. McSally is a former Republican congresswoman who was appointed to McCain's seat last year after she narrowly lost to Democrat Kyrsten Sinema. McSally leaned heavily on her record as the first woman to fly a combat mission as a fighter pilot, but she was hurt by her embrace of President Donald Trump.

    Michael Bailey is Trump's choice as U.S. Attorney for Arizona

    John McCain's recommended candidate, nominated by the late senator in April 2017, was not selected for the job President Donald Trump nominated Michael Bailey to fill the long-vacant position of U.S. Attorney for Arizona. Bailey, who was nominated Monday, would fill the spot left vacant since former U.S. Attorney John Leonardo resigned in January 2017. In April 2017, the late Sen. John McCain had recommended another candidate for the position — a recommendation Trump seems to have ignored. The U.S. Attorney's Office represents the United States in federal cases, meaning they arise from disputes over federal law. State and local prosecutors, in contrast, represent the state for cases arising under
