FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Statement from Senate President Fann on the passing of Roberta McCain

"Today Arizona mourns the loss of Roberta McCain, at the age of 108. She lived a life with public service and the military at its center. Her husband John was a four-star Navy Admiral, and their son John a Navy pilot who spent five years as a prisoner of war in North Vietnam before returning home and then representing Arizona in the U.S. Senate.

America got to know Mrs. McCain in the 2008 presidential campaign, where it quickly became apparent where her son learned the benefits of 'straight talk'. Although 96 at the time, she had more energy than those who were half her age.

Today Arizona sends its prayers and thoughts to the entire McCain family."
