Arizona Sen. John McCain passed away today at the age of 81 after a battle with a malignant brain tumor, called a glioblastoma.
“Senator John Sidney McCain III died at 4:28pm on August 25, 2018. With the Senator when he passed were his wife Cindy and their family. At his death, he had served the United States of America faithfully for sixty years.”
— Statement from McCain’s office
The bottom line: McCain was one of the last giants of the Senate who could reach beyond partisan politics.
