    The good followed by the bad:

    John McCain To Resign Senate Seat on the 4th of July, Says Aide. Cindy McCain Offered his Seat

    Senator John McCain will resign his US Senate seat on July 4, 2018, says an aide who asked not to be named because he was not authorized to speak to the press.

    Wonderful!

    "In the end, it was about Kennedy resigning from the Supreme Court," said the aide. "Confirming a (SCOTUS) replacement before the election is considered in the interest of the national Republican party, so that it doesn't become an issue for Dems to run on in every race," said the aide, meaning every race for Senate or Congress.

    Even better!

    The Aide indicated that the Senator wanted to wait until June 1 to resign, so that his seat would not be on the ballot along with retiring Jeff Flake. Republican Gov. Doug Ducey will appoint a Senator to serve until the 2020 election.

    The aide said that Ducey has quietly offered McCain's seat to Cindy, but the 64 year old wife of Senator John McCain has made no decision as of yet. "Understandably, she doesn't want to think about it," he added.

    Not good!

    Maybe it was fake news. Maybe I misremember. But I'm pretty sure I heard a couple of months or so back that she wanted to take the job. Either she's faking it now (very possible), somebody was stirring the pot without consulting her by pushing her name out (equally possible) or I misunderstood the story when it was brought up about her replacing him.
