    What is at issue is the process, not the politics. How does it make sense to just hand over a Senate seat to a Senator's wife? Why wouldn't there be a special election as was done when Ted Kennedy died?

    Depends on the law in the particular state, Mike.

    Cindy is conservative and hates Trump.

    I like the combo.

    Every state has their own rules. Take your complaint up with the Arizona legislature.

    In the US? No spouse should get appointed to anything. This is the 1500's.

    A widow should be in the legal care of her son or brother!

    The governor gets to appoint the new Senator until the election. She can’t be any worse than her husband. I respect McCain’s war record but as a Senator he has been a big disappointment.

    What the state of Arizona does with this position is Arizona’s lone decision.

    thing is that 'mcstain' is a repub and repubs think that they own the 'mcstain' seat . Just another reason to hate or dislike 'repubs' for me .

    Wish more average Joes would run for office. So tired of the dynasy thing.

    Same thing happens in media. That's pretty much an inherited job, too.

    Note that this is almost exclusively Democrat list. Hopefully, the GOP won't be so condescending.
