"It's a great tribute to John that he is prepared to go back into public service to help the state of Arizona", she said.

Jon Kyl's appointment to the Senate, the latest chapter in a period of political uncertainty that's nevertheless a new experience for most Arizonans - at least when it comes to the relative stability of its senators.

"Jon Kyl will be an extraordinary Senator representing an extraordinary state, Arizona", Trump said in a tweet congratulating Kyl. Jon Kyl will be named as her deceased husband's replacement in the U.S. Senate.

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey says former Republican Sen. The Arizona Republic reported Ducey's intention to replace McCain with Kyl prior to his Tuesday morning press conference in Arizona.

Ducey is expected to hold a news conference Tuesday to officially announce Kyl as McCain's successor in the Senate.

The Latest on former U.S. Sen. He retired in 2013 after rising to become the second-highest-ranking Republican senator. In other words, Kyl might serve just long enough to provide McConnell with a spare vote for confirming Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court (before his appointment, Kyl was leading the outside lobbying effort to secure Kavanaugh's confirmation) - and then step down, thereby allowing a newly reelected governor Ducey to put a younger, more ambitious conservative in his place.

In a February interview with Phoenix-based radio station KJZZ, Kyl described Trump as a "phenomenon that has to be dealt with" and took aim at his combative manner. "Pick the best possible person, regardless of politics, '" Ducey said.

Once Kyl is sworn in, Republicans will return to the 51 seats they held in the 100-member Senate before McCain's death.


Kyl, 76, has committed to serve only until the end of the current congressional session on January 3. He did, however, rule out running for McCain's seat in the special election.

"It's my hope that he serves longer". "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", said Senator Jon Kyl.

"What an excellent choice!"

Kyl speaks in a formal, reserved manner that is a sharp contrast to Trump, and he belongs to an older, less populist vanguard of the GOP.

"No", Kyl said flatly when asked whether he might one day serve again.

Along the way, Kyl was an unapologetic national security hawk, culminating in his spearheading of the ultimately unsuccessful opposition to the New START nonproliferation treaty between the United States and Russian Federation.

"I don't like his style. I think he's his own worst enemy", Kyl told an Arizona radio station earlier this year. In 2010, Time magazine called Kyl one of the 100 most influential people in the world, noting his "encyclopedic knowledge of domestic and foreign policy, and his hard work and leadership" and his "power to persuade". "But I think there's a happy medium".
