Representative McSally Commends Governor Ducey for Selecting Former U.S. Senator Jon Kyl to be Senator McCain's Successor
WASHINGTON, DC — Today, U.S. Representative Martha McSally released the following statement after Governor Doug Ducey announced the appointment of former U.S. Senator Jon Kyl to succeed Senator John McCain in the U.S. Senate. Congresswoman McSally served on the staff of Senator Jon Kyl as a participant in the Air Force's Legislative Fellowship Program from 1999-2000.
"Senator Jon Kyl is a brilliant man of integrity and a proven leader for Arizona and the entire country. I learned this first-hand working as a national security fellow for him when I was an active duty Major. His example inspired me to step up and serve in office myself. I am grateful for Senator Kyl's willingness to serve Arizona and America again at such a critical time and to carry out the legacy of his long-time friend and colleague Senator McCain. I commend Governor Ducey for his wise decision and look forward to working with Senator Kyl for Arizona."
