Family, friends and politicians react to John McCain's death

Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman Sen. John McCain R-Ariz. arrives on Capitol Hill in Washington Tuesday

US Senator John McCain, Vietnam war veteran who ran unsuccessfully against former US President Barack Obama as a Republican candidate passed away on Saturday, his office said.

"Senator John Sidney McCain III died at 4:28pm on August 25, 2018", a statement from McCain's office reads.

Bill and wife Hillary Clinton also released a joint statement thanking John for his years of service while also sending their love to John's wife Cindy and their family.

An explanation could be that some lawmakers fear they will be punished by voters if they put their names to dumping Turnbull. The vote to refer Dutton to the High Court was defeated 69-68 in the House of Representatives before it adjourned.

Mr. Obama, who defeated McCain in 2008 presidential race, issued a statement shortly after McCain's death saying that "we shared, for all our differences, a fidelity to something higher - the ideals for which generations of Americans and immigrants alike have fought, marched, and sacrificed". "But in this loss, and in this sorrow, I take comfort in this: John McCain, hero of the republic and to his little girl, wakes today to something more glorious than anything on this earth". He did things his way, and conducted two campaigns for President of the United States with honor and integrity. He was larger than life.

In a Sports Illustrated piece he wrote a year ago, Fitzgerald wrote that he would tell his sons "Senator John McCain will be revered and respected for as long as the United States of America has a place in this world, and his legacy will outlive us all".

According to The New York Times, McCain had been undergoing treatment for his cancer since July 2017.
