Arizona Horizon: John McCain’s replacement and the 17th Amendment

More from this show

The passage of the 17th amendment, which allowed citizens to elect state senators, gave governors the power to appointment replacements when a senator could not finish his or her term in office. Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey has said he will wait until after McCain is buried to begin the process to name a replacement for the late senator.
