The late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) may no longer be with us since his death on Aug. 25, 2018, but he’s left behind one thing for sure: a widow with a fire in her soul to do the right thing this presidential election cycle.
Cindy McCain may have just secured Joe Biden the state of Arizona in the 2020 presidential election with this video she narrated Tuesday for the Democratic National Convention.
“It was a friendship that shouldn’t have worked,” she recalled in the video. “John, a former Navy pilot, just released from a North Vietnamese prison. Joe, a young senator from Delaware. But in the 1970s, Joe was assigned a military aide for a trip overseas. The families got to know each other, gathering for picnics in the Bidens’ backyard.”
In addition to being McCain’s widow, the American businesswoman, philanthropist and humanitarian is also the mother of television host and commentator Meghan McCain.
“They would just sit and joke. It was like a comedy show, sometimes, to watch the two of them,” she added.
McCain, who served in the U.S. Navy and was held prisoner during the Vietnamese War, was elected to the U.S. Senate in 1986. He ran unsuccessfully for president as the Republican Party nominee in 2008, when he lost to Barack Obama. McCain died at the age of 81 after a battle with brain cancer.
A snippet of the endorsement video can be seen below.
My husband and Vice President Biden enjoyed a 30+ year friendship dating back to before their years serving together in the Senate, so I was honored to accept the invitation from the Biden campaign to participate in a video celebrating their relationship.https://t.co/Y6XOnBC1IW

Cindy McCain has been my friend for most of my life. She is, and has always been, a class act. She doesn’t do this lightly. But she knows what a good man @JoeBiden is and that he’s the right person for this time. . #countryFirst. https://t.co/igqFOdJ88E
