WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today released this statement on former Senator Jon Kyl (R-Arizona) being appointed to Senator John McCain’s (R-Arizona) seat through at least the remainder of the 115th Congress.
“I’m very pleased to hear that Jon Kyl has been appointed as John McCain’s successor for at least the remainder of the 115th Congress. For decades, John McCain and Jon Kyl were a terrific Senate duo for the people of Arizona and the country as a whole.
“Jon Kyl is a worthy replacement. Over his many years of public service, he has established himself as a solid conservative who will do his best to solve hard problems and he will always have the back of the men and women in uniform – much like his dear friend, John McCain.”
