The McCain family is weighing in on who should replace Jon Kyle, who will be retiring at the end of the year after replacing John McCain in the Senate. The Washington Examiner reports:
Meghan McCain’s husband said that Rep. Martha McSally, R-Ariz., would be an “unwise choice” for Arizona senator.
McSally strikes me as an unwise choice for a number of reasons. She's like an NFL team that plays down to its opponents' level – and she'll be tasked with running for re-election immediately. https://t.co/C01s2sL28e

“McSally strikes me as an unwise choice for a number of reasons,” Ben Domenech tweeted. “She’s like an NFL team that plays down to its opponents’ level – and she’ll be tasked with running for re-election immediately.”
Meghan McCain, daughter of the late Republican Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. and a host of the cable television show The View, retweeted her husband’s comment.
Domenech was responding to reports that Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey might pick McSally, 52, as Sen. Jon Kyl’s replacement as he steps down from the U.S. Senate at the end of the year. McSally, a former Air Foce colonel and the first American woman to fly in combat, is retiring from Congress next month after narrowly losing a Senate contest to Rep. Kyrsten Sinema, D-Ariz., last month.
While there might be truth that McSally could risk losing the seat in the special election in 2020, this series of statements could be a way to exclude all Republicans who don’t subscribe to McCain’s RINO agenda.
