Jon Kyl to be named as successor to John McCain

Sen. Jon Kyl walks through the Capitol on Nov. 15 2011

Doug Ducey, left, appointed former U.S. Sen.

Governor Ducey is expected to announce that Jon Kyl will fill the seat of John McCain as Arizona's 2nd US Senator.

Cindy McCain tweeted her support of the choice, calling Kyl "a dear friend of mine and John's", and calling his appointment to replace her late husband "a great tribute" to him.

"We are all saddened by the circumstances that required this appointment and appreciate there was only one John McCain", Kyl said.

Nadal 'bagelled' but survives Thiem test to reach semis
Thiem was also 5-3 ahead in the third set and 4-2 in the fourth before he was reeled in by Nadal, the three-time champion in NY . "I just (kept) going, I'm very sorry for Dominic, he's a close friend on tour, a great guy, and I wish him all the very best".

Kyl said today at the news conference with Ducey that he doesn't have a relationship with Trump.

Ducey insisted his appointment was not political, despite Kyl working closely with the White House in recent months on getting Kavanaugh confirmed in the Senate, where Republicans hold a razor-thin one-vote majority. "I am deeply grateful to senator Kyl for agreeing to succeed his friend and colleague of so many years". An election will be held to fill the final two years of McCain's term in 2020. The seat will then be on the ballot again in 2022. Prior to his time in the Senate, Kyl served as representative in the U.S. House from 1987 to 1995.

For now, Kyl will pad Republicans' margin in the narrowly divided Senate. Jon Kyl is ready to cast a vote for Brett Kavanaugh to be nominated to the U.S. Supreme Court.

Kyl, a former GOP whip, also worked in support of Judge Neil Gorsuch's Supreme Court nomination for the client Judicial Crisis Network, which paid Covington $215,000 previous year, according to lobbying disclosures.

Doug Ducey's selection of fellow Republican and former Sen.

Republican President Donald Trump had long feuded with McCain and did not attend the senator's memorials in Arizona and Washington over the past week, at McCain's request. After retiring in 2012 he became a lobbyist for the firm Convington and Burling which represents big players in the pharmaceutical industry according to the Center for Responsive Politics.

An ardent supporter of Kavanaugh, it comes as no surprise that Ducey tapped someone who will vote to confirm him to the Supreme Court.
