John McCain say his daughter Meghan McCain's pointed criticism of President Donald Trump in her speech at the Arizona Republican's memorial service on Saturday reflected the character of her late father. "There is much-unfinished business, including confirmation of President Trump's nominees for judicial and executive branch positions, and I look forward to getting to work on behalf of my fellow Arizonans", Kyl said in a statement. "Jon Kyl is a great persuader", then-Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell wrote in the magazine.
"I see this as a very crucial moment in Arizona's history and it's going to have significant implications nationally", Solop said.
Kyl, who served with McCain from 1995 to 2013, could possibly serve in the Senate until the general election in 2020. "There is no one in Arizona with the stature of senator Jon Kyl". Kyl will serve until at least the end of the year; should he choose not to serve beyond the remainder of 2018, Ducey will have to name another replacement to serve out the rest of McCain's term.
Petraeus said McCain was a man of "great courage, unshakable determination, and unwavering devotion to our country and those who defend it", according to remarks released by the family.
That said, Kyl has not ruled out remaining in the seat until 2020.

The GOP is hoping he'll be a more reliable partisan vote than McCain, whose opposition to a partial repeal of President Obama's health care law pitched the party into turmoil previous year.
"John's voice will always come as a whisper over our shoulder - we are better than this, America is better than this", he said.
"I will miss him as a friend, and a strong force for America and the world", Kyl said.
