Default John McCain To Resign Senate Seat on the 4th of July, Says Aide. Cindy McCain Offered

Wonder what the choice McCain’s daughter will have on the Supreme court nomination before the mid-terms?

<Senator John McCain will resign his US Senate seat on July 4, 2018, says an aide who asked not to be named because he was not authorized to speak to the press.>

<"In the end, it was about Kennedy resigning from the Supreme Court," said the aide. "Confirming a (SCOTUS) replacement before the election is considered in the interest of the national Republican party, so that it doesn't become an issue for Dems to run on in every race," said the aide, meaning every race for Senate or Congress.>

<The Aide indicated that the Senator wanted to wait until June 1 to resign, so that his seat would not be on the ballot along with retiring Jeff Flake. Republican Gov. Doug Ducey will appoint a Senator to serve until the 2020 election.>

I don't understand what McCain's daughter has to do with the decision?.
Perhaps I missed that section in government class.

Jeff Flake is a lame duck Senator. So the state is not represented well at this crucial time.The Governor of Arizona will waste no time in replacing him.

'The aide said that Ducey has quietly offered McCain's seat to Cindy, but the 64 year old wife of Senator John McCain has made no decision as of yet. "Understandably, she doesn't want to think about it," he added'.

I understand the sympathy and the gesture. I don't think Cindy should be asked to make such an important decision right now. As for her taking the seat, I just don't think that is a good idea either.

I shoulda been clearer with my question. I was referencing the "McConnell Rule."

McConnell rule?????

This has nothing to do with that invention of the left. But you are right for once, you should have been more clear as to you intentions.

As far as I've seen, this is the singular source for this story.

I'm gonna wait until we get more confirmation.

From your own source...

But as McConnell discussed in an expansive interview with “Behind Closed Doors,” a Washington Examiner podcast, he was referring to presidential, not midterm,
Proof - The last president to nominate a pick during midterms?...Barack Obama...

It was NOT blocked with McConnell as Republican leader...

Also from my source. "He has always prioritized the federal bench, and Obama’s nominee tilting a narrowly divided Supreme Court to the Left was unappealing."
