Take A Look At Who Just Got Appointed To John McCain’s Former Senate Seat

Republican Rep. Martha McSally, fresh off a loss in one of the closest midterms this year, has been appointed to John McCain’s former senate seat by Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey.

McSally will serve in the position for the next two years in the seat held by McCain until his death this past August from brain cancer.

“With her experience and long record of service, Martha is uniquely qualified to step up and fight for Arizona’s interests in the U.S. Senate,” Ducey said in a statement.

Ducey had appointed former Sen. Jon Kyl to the seat in September, but Kyl, after serving for several months, announced plans to resign at the end of the year. According to Ducey’s office, Kyl’s resignation will be effective Dec. 31.

McSally was defeated by Democratic Rep. Kyrsten Sinema in this year’s midterm election for the seat held by retiring GOP Sen. Jeff Flake. Her appointment means she will now serve alongside her opponent, something Ducey noted in his statement.

It’s sort of funny to see McSally get this seat after such a hard fought battle against her opponent this year. Just goes to show that sometimes there’s more than one path to get where you want to go.

Her performance in this position will speak volumes about where her future might lie in the realm of political public service, so here’s to hoping she does a fantastic job supporting freedom and liberty for the people of Arizona.
