Senator John McCain (R-AZ) has been diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor.
McCain spoke with Senator Lindsey Graham (R-SC) and said he’s been through wars.
McCain has glioblastoma, an aggressive cancer. Doctors at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, where McCain had a blood clot removed from above his left eye last Friday, revealed.
Graham said, “The disease has never had a more worthy opponent.”
President Trump sent words to McCain. “Senator John McCain has always been a fighter. Melania and I send our thoughts and prayers to Senator McCain, Cindy, and their entire family. Get well soon,” President Trump said.
A group of Senators prayed together on Wednesday night after learning about McCain’s brain tumor.

Karen & I are praying for @SenJohnMcCain. Cancer picked on the wrong guy. John McCain is a fighter & he’ll win this fight too. God bless!

This is the same cancer that Ted Kennedy had and died from.
I wish Senator McCain well but I do think it may be time for his seat in the Senate to be filled with someone else, hopefully, a Republican.
Let’s get Obamacare repealed first. I think we need McCain’s vote. This complicates matters.
