Doug Ducey spoke at Sen. John McCain is getting so much media attention in the wake of his death on Saturday.

McCain's wife, Cindy, widely seen as a possible candidate for appointment to succeed her husband, led a procession of 90 mourners past his casket.

Asked by Bash how he squares his close friendship with McCain to his new relationship with Trump, Graham said, "If you know anything about me, I want to be relevant". Ducey is also headed for a tough reelection battle in the fall, and is seeking a smooth replacement process.

He was elected to the House in 1983, and Dole said they ran into each other when McCain would visit the office of Sen.

The Senate, without need for a vote from the House or for President Donald Trump's support, can rename the office building.

The memorial tributes followed a few days of confusion at the White House over whether American flags at US government buildings would be flown at half-staff, in the traditional gesture for prominent political figures who die.

A police escort processional carried McCain's body to the Capitol as scores of Arizona veterans, military, law enforcement, fire, and first responders lined the sides of the Capitol Plaza for his arrival.

Ducey went on to say that visitors to Arizona most commonly identify the state with two things: John McCain and the Grand Canyon. Along with invited family and friends, around 1,000 seats were being made available to members of the public who signed up. Attendees included three of McCain's onetime Republican colleagues from Arizona's congressional delegation - retiring Senator Jeff Flake, former Senator Jon Kyl and former Congressman James Kolbe.

All of them say they feel a special connection to him, whether it's because they served in the Vietnam Conflict with him, or had a shared love of music. But under pressure from military veterans and members of Congress, Trump finally issued a statement on Monday saying he respected McCain's service to the country and had ordered flags to half-staff. He will lie in state Friday in Washington, D.C., before being buried at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, Md.

Former Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl said he had been with McCain across the world and he had better instincts on when to assert US power than anyone else he knew. "He represented the last of that as far as I'm concerned". "Fight back", Graham said. "We'll miss that pace", Davis, McCain's former national campaign manager for both of his presidential bids, said.

"I am not going to give up on the idea of working with this president", Graham said.

A public memorial service will be held Thursday at North Phoenix Baptist Church before McCain's body is taken by motorcade to an Arizona Air National Guard base at Sky Harbor International Airport to be flown to Washington.
