Mourners enter Phoenix church for McCain service

Greg Ducey (R), who is tasked with replacing the late Sen. John McCain at the Arizona Capitol on August 29, 2018. As she stepped up to her father's casket after her mother, Cindy, she appeared to shake, placing her hand against it. The bad blood between the two persisted after McCain's death, with his family asking Trump not to attend his funeral and the White House waffling on how to mourn a prominent fellow Republican. Ducey is also headed for a tough reelection battle in the fall, and is seeking a smooth replacement process.

Since McCain's passing, there have been many tributes, including from the cast of SNL, and a notable lack of tributes from Donald Trump's White House.

"Given the political world as it is today, why go do this?" None of these buildings are flying their USA and California flags at half-staff.

"Imagining Arizona without John McCain is like picturing Arizona without the Grand Canyon", he said. Members of the public in Arizona will later be able to pay their respects. Attendees included three of McCain's onetime Republican colleagues from Arizona's congressional delegation - retiring Senator Jeff Flake, former Senator Jon Kyl and former Congressman James Kolbe.

McCain's final destination will be his alma mater, the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, where he will be buried alongside Chuck Larson, a former Naval Academy classmate and lifelong friend.

Earlier, the hearse bearing McCain's coffin was greeted outside the statehouse by National Guard troops, military veterans, law enforcement officers and firefighters, all in dress uniform and standing at attention as they saluted.

"I grew up where a handshake was a contract and your word was your bond", Riordan said.

"When John McCain called on us to serve a goal greater than one's own self-interest, it wasn't a talking point created to win the next election", Ducey said.

Nguyen said that in the 1990s, McCain pushed an amendment to a law that allowed for unmarried, adult children of political detainees to come to the U.S. "We'll miss that pace", Davis, McCain's former national campaign manager for both of his presidential bids, said.

He would have turned 82 years old on Wednesday.

The change does present some concerns, however. I am not going to give up on the idea of working with this president. Celaya said he was most impressed with McCain's willingness to fight for his beliefs. I would say, 'Relax!

Tomorrow, McCain's body will be flown to Washington D.C., where he will lie in state at the Capitol Rotunda before he's lain to rest at the U.S. Naval Academy Cemetery.

The memorial service will include multiple tributes, readings and musical performances, including a tribute from former US Vice President Joe Biden.
