Rogan's Recollections

(And an Occasional Historical Observation)

Senator John McCain (1936-2018)

During my service in Congress, I had my differences with John McCain (as did every other Republican), who died yesterday at age 81. Still, I never forgot that he helped in my reelection--even when we did a joint press conference and I criticized his signature McCain-Feingold campaign finance proposal while he stood at my elbow (that explains the grimace on his face in this photograph).

 

He was an American original and a true war hero. Requiem in pacem.
