McCain died on Saturday at 81 after a 13-month struggle with brain cancer.

Marc Short, Trump's former legislative director, said the president faced "a little bit of a situation of a Catch 22" when deciding how to respond to McCain's death.

Speaking to reporters after writing in a book of condolences, U.S. Ambassador Daniel Kritenbrink said McCain was "a great leader and real hero" who helped normalize relations between the former enemies. As noted, on the one hand from the Governor the need to find similar-minded McCain the candidate who is willing to speak out against the President.

And this morning, the White House flag was raised back to full-staff only hours after being lowered to honor McCain's passing. As chairmen of the Senate Committees on Veterans' Affairs and Armed Services, Isakson and McCain have worked closely together to improve care for veterans and ensure a seamless transition for service members from the U.S. Department of Defense to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
