For more than a year, Cindy McCain kept Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey (R) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) updated on her husband’s valiant battle against brain cancer.

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) ended that final battle on Saturday, passing away just four days before his 82nd birthday, 32 years after winning his first term in the Senate.

Now it falls to Ducey to choose McCain’s successor. The first-term governor has already begun considering a list of potential replacements, according to four Republicans either familiar with Ducey’s thinking or close to those who have been involved in initial discussions.

But Ducey, both conscious of McCain’s status as one of the nation’s most respected statesmen and war heroes and nervous about his own reelection bid this November, has squelched speculation about who might inherit McCain’s seat.
