WASHINGTON, DC — July 19, 2017 — Congressman Eliot L. Engel issued the following statement:
“John McCain is as tough as they come, and there’s no doubt he’ll face this challenge with the courage and strength that have defined him across five decades of public service. My thoughts are with him, Cindy, and the rest of the McCain family. I wish him well during this difficult time and hope to see him back in the Senate soon.”
Editor-at-Large Hezi Aris’ Note: Mr. McCain had surgery last Friday to remove a blood clot above his left eye following a physical at the Mayo Clinic Hospital in Phoenix. The hospital said that subsequent tests revealed that a glioblastoma, a type of brain tumor, was associated with the blood clot.
