John McCain


John McCain has represented Arizona in the United States Senate for over three decades. The son and grandson of four-star admirals in the U.S. Navy, McCain served as a pilot during the Vietnam War, where he was shot down and captured in 1967. After returning from the war, McCain dedicated himself to public service, first as a Congressman, and then as a Senator and, in 2008, as presidential nominee. In 2013, McCain spearheaded a bipartisan effort to enact comprehensive immigration reform. It ultimately came up short, but Senator McCain continues to urge his colleagues to take meaningful legislative action to fix our broken system.
