John McCain Lies in State at Arizona Capitol

Currently, Congress has been floating the idea of renaming the Senate Office Building after the late McCain, who died last Saturday from a struggle with brain cancer, The Hill reported. USA and Arizona flags encircled the room.

A Navy veteran, McCain is also being honored as a hero for his service during the Vietnam War.

Gov. Doug Ducey and his wife greeted the hearse along with a phalanx of military personnel, war veterans, law enforcement officers and firefighters in dress uniform.

"We'll need someone who is going to step up to the plate", Hatch said.

The ceremony will include remarks from Ducey and former U.S. Sen.

He finally did so for McCain around 4 p.m. Monday, signing a proclamation that described the move as "a mark of respect for the memory and longstanding service of Senator John Sidney McCain III". Members of the public began lining up hours in advance for a casket viewing that was to begin in the afternoon. He is the only name to make the list twice, because, as Ken once said, McCain's gimmicky Straight Talk Express in his 2000 primary run against George W.

For some Arizona residents, Mr McCain has been a political fixture in the state for their entire lives.

On Thursday morning, a procession through Phoenix will bring the casket to a memorial service at a Baptist church, with the public invited to line the route along a highway.

Among the pallbearers will be Democratic former vice president Joe Biden, ex-senator Russ Feingold, former NY mayor Michael Bloomberg and actor Warren Beatty. Musical choices include a recessional to "My Way" by Frank Sinatra.

The Arizona National Guard carries the casket of Sen.

The list of participants in the proceedings reflected the crossroads at which the Arizona Republican Party finds itself in the wake of McCain's death and at a time when the conservative base is lurching rightward.

McCain will lie in state again at the U.S. Capitol on Friday, followed by a funeral Saturday at Washington's National Cathedral and a burial on Sunday at the Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland.
