Cindy McCain’s name has reportedly been tossed around by many speculators, pros being that the choice would satisfy the family’s wishes and that she likely wouldn’t run for reelection in 2020, cons being that her politics are largely unknown.
The choice ultimately falls to Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, who has said that out of respect for the late Senator, his replacement will not be announced until after the burial.
Ducey is walking a thin line to pick someone more amenable to hardcore Arizona Republicans, but not someone so drastically different from McCain as to insult his legacy.
