If Kyl does not serve after the end of the current congressional term on January 3, 2019, Arizona's governor can appoint another senator for the remaining year.

"There is no one in Arizona with the stature of Jon Kyl".

IF Ducey loses and Kyl doesn't want to continue, Ducey will have to appoint a replacement before his term ends.

The next senator from Arizona, replacing the late Sen.

However, on Tuesday Ducey said that he hasn't been able to get Kyl's commitment to serve beyond the congressional session that ends this year, though he hopes Kyl will reconsider.

Ducey said he received much advice about the appointment, "most of it unsolicited".

Kyl, a Republican who retired from the Senate in 2013, said at the time, "I never anticipated I would be in public service for 26 years". Every single day that Jon Kyl represents #Arizona in the U.S. Senate is a day our state is well-served.

Ducey confirmed the pick in a tweet Tuesday. He's been a lawyer in Washington since his retirement, and in recent months has been shepherding Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh through his nomination to the Supreme Court.

Family and friends, along with the Naval Academy's class of 1958 and its current student body, bade a final farewell in a private service at the Naval Academy chapel before McCain, who died August 25 at age 81, was interred in a cemetery on the academy grounds.

"There is no one more qualified and Arizona is well served", he said. He and his wife, who said she met McCain once at a campaign event in Arizona, lamented McCain's grit, honest, personality and "everything he did for this country", they stated.

"When others were looking into Vladimir Putin's eyes, with an eye of understanding him and reaching accommodation with him, John, of course, said: I looked into his eyes and saw KGB", Kyl said. "I think he's his own worst enemy", Kyl told an Arizona radio station earlier this year.

On Aug. 25, when McCain passed away, the president only posted a very brief tweet on Twitter offering his condolences to the senator's family, but didn't issue any formal statement about his death.

Many assumed that he was referring to President Donald Trump, who was pointedly not invited to the service.

"I can not think of anything I've done in politics of effect, any cause I've engaged in, that John was not there, that I was not his wingman".

"So we went out there and there was nothing left", Jacob said. He also works for the lobbying group at the law firm Covington & Burling.
