Ducey’s office: ‘Obsession’ with who will get McCain’s Senate seat is ‘disgraceful’

By Yvonne Wingett Sanchez | The Republic

Gov. Doug Ducey’s spokesman rebuked political pundits and the national media for speculating about who Ducey might appoint to succeed U.S. Sen. John McCain in the event his seat is vacated.

Ducey’s office reiterated Wednesday that McCain remains Arizona’s senior senator — and said he is not planning on making an appointment soon.

In a statement posted on Twitter, Ducey spokesman Daniel Scarpinato said the governor had a good visit with McCain and tried to quash Washington, D.C., chatter about a possible McCain replacement.

“To anyone who uses this as an opportunity to speculate or fan the rumor mill: Washington, DC’s obsession with this when there is no issue to be discussed is disgraceful,” Scarpinato said.
