Who Might Gov. Ducey Appoint to Replace Jon Kyl? Three Names
Sen. Jon Kyl (R-AZ), who served in the Senate in his own right from 1995 to 2013, is fulfilling the remainder of the term left by his former colleague and friend, Sen. John McCain. Around the time of his appointment, Kyl indicated that he would only serve until the end of the year, at which time Gov. Doug Ducey could appoint a longer-term successor.
Since that time, Arizona held a Senate election, and voters sent Rep. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) to the Senate. She will begin her term in January after she narrowly defeated Rep. Martha McSally (R-AZ), who earned more than 1.1 million votes.
But the question remains: who will Ducey, a Republican, select to fill the remainder of the McCain term? The appointee will undoubtedly have the advantage of incumbency, but he or she will also have to run in 2020 to earn the right to fulfill the remainder of the McCain term and then again in 2024 for a full term of their own.
