I begin my remarks by paying my respect to our colleague and friend, Sen. John McCain.

A great American has died.

Sen. McCain represented the people of Arizona and the United States of America with great honor and always holding his ground and sticking with his principles.

Sen. McCain was tough and tenacious both as a 32-year member of the United States Senate and in the United States Navy.
