Cotton Statement on the Passing of Senator John McCain

August 25, 2018

Washington, D.C. - Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) today released the following statement on the passing of Senator John McCain:

"John McCain was an American original. Tough, independent, and outspoken, he was captured, but he never surrendered. The inner strength he showed in the Hanoi Hilton shone through during his 36 years in the Congress. Wherever one stands on the political spectrum-and most people had occasion to stand both with and against this maverick-John McCain was a passionate fighter for his ideas, for our troops, and for a better America. While we mourn his passing today, and extend condolences to Cindy and his children, let us also celebrate his life, now and in the days to come. John McCain kept the faith of his fathers in the country we all love."
