PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) — Gov. Doug Ducey has selected Martha McSally to fill the Senate seat that was once John McCain’s.
The announcement was made on Tuesday morning via a press release from Ducey’s office.
“All her life, Martha has put service first — leading in the toughest of fights and at the toughest of times,” said Governor Ducey.
After the announcement was made, Cindy McCain tweeted, “My husband’s greatest legacy was placing service to AZ & USA ahead of his own self-interest. I respect @dougducey’s decision to appoint @RepMcSally to fill the remainder of his term. Arizonans will be pulling for her, hoping that she will follow his example of selfless leadership.”
