John McCain — American war hero, long-time U.S. Senator, and former Republican presidential candidate — passed away on Saturday after a battle with brain cancer. He was 81.
Late this week, McCain’s family announced that he would no longer receive cancer treatments and be placed in palliative care, and he passed soon thereafter. McCain’s wife, Cindy, tweeted on Saturday night to express her grief and thank those that have supported the family over the last few months.
Meghan McCain, the Arizona senator’s daughter and also co-host of The View, released a statement online on Saturday night.
