If Gillum manages to win, he would become the first African-American governor of Florida and only the fourth black governor in the US post-Reconstruction.

At the close of the private ceremony, members of the McCain family approached the senator's coffin to deliver an emotional goodbye.

While Barry Goldwater was an Arizona native, McCain was "Arizona's favorite adopted son", the governor said on what would have been the 82nd birthday of McCain, who was born in the Panama Canal Zone while his father served in the military.

McCain's body will lie in state until Friday.

Republican Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, who co-sponsored the measure, said he does "not want to get out ahead" before he talks to McCain's family.

Graham said he was vowing to channel the politics of the late Senate Armed Services chairman, who was often a fierce critic of Trump and the Pentagon but also a champion of using United States military might overseas, the Examiner reported.

Ducey said that McCain "brought us above politics", so with "humor and humanity and without compromising the principles he held so dear". Arizona and USA flags encircled the room. Soon, the public will be able to visit the capital to pay their respects to the senator. Ducey echoed McCain's love for the state, saying, "Imagining an Arizona without John McCain is like imagining an Arizona without the Grand Canyon". McCain's former campaign manager Rick Davis read the letter. He took office in Arizona in the early 1980s, first as a congressman and then as a senator in the seat once held by Sen.

The ceremony is scheduled for Thursday at the North Phoenix Baptist Church.
