John McCain's Arizona Senate seat, which he'd occupied for more than three decades, will remain vacant until after his burial at the U.S. Naval Academy Cemetery in Maryland, an aide to Gov. Doug Ducey told The Arizona Republic.
What's next: Ducey, a Republican, will appoint McCain's successor to serve until a special election in 2020. The winner of that election would complete the remainder of McCain's term, which ends in January 2023.
