Cardinals, Arizona teams honor Sen. John McCain

Read			John McCain War Hero and

U.S. Senator John McCain, a former prisoner of war in Vietnam who ran unsuccessfully for president as a self-styled maverick Republican in 2008 and became a prominent critic of President Donald Trump, died on Saturday, his office said.

A black hearse, accompanied by a police motorcade, could be seen driving away from the ranch near Sedona where McCain spent his final weeks.

Gov. Doug Ducey, R-Ariz., does not plan to announce his selection of a Senate successor to McCain until after McCain's burial.

"Senator John Sidney McCain III died at 4:28 p.m. on August 25, 2018. John McCain, a true friend of the Philippines and one of our champions in the United States Congress", said Foreign Affairs Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano in a statement.

Trump and McCain were at odds until the end.

McCain has been the Republican nominee for president, and was running against the Democratic candidate and eventual victor, Barack Obama.

McCain denounced Trump for, among other things, his praise of Russian President Vladimir Putin and other leaders the senator described as foreign "tyrants".

"We saw our political battles, even, as a privilege, something noble, an opportunity to serve as stewards of those high ideals at home, and to advance them around the world".

2 people trapped in valley hit by heavy rain
Lane is a Category 4 hurricane, with maximum sustained winds near 150 mph/240 km/h, with higher gusts. Two campers were reported trapped overnight in Waipio Valley, along the Big Island's northern coast.

Former President Barack Obama, former President George W. Bush and former Vice President Joe Biden were expected to give eulogies. "It sprang from his belief in democracy and freedom".

McCain was the son and grandson of admirals and followed them to the U.S. Naval Academy.

"It's been quite a ride", McCain, who was tortured during five years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, wrote in a memoir published earlier this year. He was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives from Arizona in 1982 and elected to the United States Senate in 1986.

At a time Republicans were trying to smear the Obama presidency with claims of Obama not being American or being Muslim, John McCain maintained the best values of American life - decency, liberalism and a commitment to fairness and the truth. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., announced that he wants to name the Senate building that housed McCain's suite of offices after the Arizona senator, who served as chairman of the Commerce Committee and the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Tesla nears three-month low as JPMorgan adds to deal doubts
Musk's already chaotic world blew up again when he tweeted this month that he had "funding secured" to take Tesla private . Back in 2016, Elon Musk described that Tesla's factory would be "the machine that builds the machine".

In September a year ago, Cayetano recalled his meeting with McCain at the Capitol Hill where they discussed the challenges confronting Manila and Washington, and how the partnership can be further strengthened to address nontraditional security concerns, such as drug trafficking and violent extremism. "His dedication to his country and the military were unsurpassed, and maybe most of all, he was a truth teller - never afraid to speak truth to power in an era where that has become all too rare".
