Senator John McCain, Political Maverick

The son and grandson of Admirals, McCain was a naval fighter pilot when he was shot down over North Vietnam in 1967; he would be held as a POW for nearly 6 years. The Arizonan was elected to the House of Representatives in 1982 and then to the Senate in 1986, a seat he still occupies. After waging a maverick campaign against George W. Bush in the 2000 Republican primary race, he lost the presidential election of 2008 to Barack Obama. A “hawk” on defense issues, McCain has been a more vocal critic of The Trump Administration policies following a recent diagnosis of an aggressive malignant brain cancer.
