(Washington D.C.) - Congressman Sires released the following statement on the passing of U.S. Senator John McCain: 

“I am saddened to hear about the passing of U.S. Senator John McCain this evening. The residents of Arizona and the Nation have lost a great leader. My sympathies go out to his wife Cindy and their children during this difficult time. Senator McCain was a champion  for human rights and believed that everyone should have the chance to realize their potential to the fullest,” said Congressman Sires. 

“The Senator served his country in the U.S. Navy with great distinction during the Vietnam War. John’s ability to work with his colleagues on both sides of the aisle is why his legacy will live on for many generations to come.”
