August 27, 2018
Washington, D.C.— Following the passing of Senator John McCain, the Democratic Attorneys General Association (@DemocraticAGs) released the following statement from Executive Director Sean Rankin.
STATEMENT FROM SEAN RANKIN, EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR, DEMOCRATIC ATTORNEYS GENERAL ASSOCIATION:
“Our thoughts and prayers are with the McCain family, friends, members of the U.S. Senate, and the people of Arizona as we remember and celebrate the life of a true American hero.”
“John McCain’s integrity and service to this nation will be remembered and respected. He was vehemently against torture, voted with Arizona and the American people on critical issues like the Affordable Care Act, and showed the kind of leadership we need more of in this country—one guided by a moral compass, not by identity or partisan politics.”
“It is incumbent on all of us to learn from this great American leader and to work towards ensuring that honor and decency are not forgotten as we face the many challenges ahead. You will be missed, Senator McCain.”
