McConnell honors Mc Cain on Senate floor

McConnell honors Mc Cain on Senate floor

Mr McCain was just the third person to lie in state in the Arizona statehouse rotunda over the past 40 years, organisers of the ceremony said. There's still a chance to pay your respects and see him honored, even if you live nowhere close to Arizona or Washington, D.C. Here's when and how to tune in for John McCain's funeral and memorial if you want to watch online or live stream the events honoring his life and service.

But that's been overlooked as some Republicans and Democrats have begun to support renaming the Russell Senate Office Building for the late John McCain, the Arizona Republican who ran unsuccessfully for president in 2008.

I'm at a loss for words for what he's done for this great state of Arizona, and our nation and internationally. John McCain on Wednesday, standing for hours in the broiling Arizona sun before filing past the flag-draped casket that his tearful wife, Cindy, lovingly pressed her face against after a ceremony for the former North Vietnam prisoner of war who represented Arizona for decades.

In a rare show of bipartisanship, John McCain's colleagues paid tribute to the late lawmaker and his legacy Monday on the Senate floor as leaders from both parties fondly recalled the Arizona Republican's fighting spirit and unwavering dedication to the United States.

A few firefighters saluted from atop a fire engine parked on an overpass when the 11-vehicle motorcade with a 17-motorcycle police escort passed underneath on Interstate 17.

John McCain's body arrived by motorcade Wednesday morning at the Arizona State Capitol, where the senator will lie in state through Thursday morning.

The Senate, without need for a vote from the House or for President Donald Trump's support, can rename the office building. McCain suffered from a rare form of brain cancer and had announced through a statement two days prior that he wouldn't be continuing treatment for the disease.

U.S. District Judge Diane Humetewa, who is Hopi, retired Arizona Diamondbacks outfielder Luis Gonzales and former Arizona Coyotes captain Shane Doan are among 14 friends acting as pallbearers. She says Arizona lost a champion for the military.

The public viewing followed an earlier private ceremony for family, friends and dignitaries. Jeff Flake, former Sen.

"It's this moment, more than any other, that can't help but stir a spirit of patriotism deep inside every American", Ducey said.

Ray Riordan, an 87-year-old navy veteran who fought in the Korean War, came from Payson, Ariz. "I wanted to give her something that related to her husband's service".

Among several thousand waiting to glimpse McCain's coffin at Arizona's Capitol was James Fine, 54, a Dallas funeral director who drove more than 1,000 miles to Phoenix to bid farewell to a man he called a "statesman".

There will be a service at the Washington National Cathedral on Saturday, then McCain will be buried at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.
