  • The White House flag flies at half staff in honor of Senator John McCain’s death in Washington on Monday

On Friday, McCain will be taken to the Capitol Rotunda for a televised memorial service where Vice President Mike Pence, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and House Speaker Paul Ryan are expected to attend. John is probably the only politician who could get us to set aside politics and come together as a state and as a nation - as we have."Like many of us here in Arizona, John McCain came from somewhere else".

The private service held earlier marked the first appearance of McCain's family since the Republican senator died Saturday of brain cancer. "Not just his life, but why he led his life the way he did", Davis told CNN Wednesday of why McCain drafted his own message for the public.

McCain was a stalwart ally of Israel.

Schumer also cited McCain's bravery and dedication to the armed forces, before calling on lawmakers to rename the Russell Senate Office Building in Washington after the late lawmaker.

McCain will then be buried on Sunday afternoon at the U.S. Naval Academy Cemetery in Annapolis, Maryland, beside former classmate and close friend Chuck Larson. (AAP) McCain stepped up to serve his country when the Vietnam war broke out.

Jon Kyl, a former U.S. Senator from Arizona, gave opening remarks at the service.

The president should know a withdrawal from the nearly 17-year-old war would "blow up" in his face, said Graham, who spoke to reporters about McCain following an emotional floor speech on the Arizona Republican's death.

McCain sons Doug, Jack and Jimmy, daughter Sidney and daughter-in-law Renee shook hands with some of the thousands of people who filed past the senator's flag-draped casket to pay their final respects.

John McCain will lie in state at the Arizona State Capitol today.

Former Arizona Sen. Jon Kyl said he has been with McCain all around the world and he had better instincts on when to assert USA power than anyone else he knew.

Joe and John met in the 1970s, when Biden was a young senator and McCain was a Navy Senate liaison.

Dozens of people, including schoolchildren of all ages, are holding McCain signs and American flags as they waited for the motorcade to arrive Thursday at a church for the longtime senator's memorial service.

Over the past two years, he stood out as sharp critic of President Donald Trump, a fellow Republican.

People carrying campaign style placards with the word "McCain" and holding USA flags lined part of the part of the 8-mile (13-kilometer) route the motorcade was taking Thursday to the North Phoenix Baptist Church.

Brewer approved of the idea - "Like the Ronald Reagan Airport, it would be the John McCain Airport" - and said there have been very few Arizonans of McCain's impact.

During Wednesday's private service at the Capitol for family and friends, Cindy McCain pressed her face against her husband's coffin, and daughter Meghan McCain erupted in sobs.

Ducey said McCain's fight for America wasn't over adding "it's a fight all Americans are obligated to continue on his behalf".

The news outlet stated that McCain's memorial service will include tributes, readings, and musical performances.

Following a memorial ceremony at the North Phoenix Baptist Church on Thursday, McCain's remains are to be flown on a military aircraft to Washington.
