Arizona Republican Gov. Doug Ducey chose former US Sen. Jon Kyl to replace the late John McCain in the Senate, the governor said at a news conference Tuesday.

Kyl’s appointment means the Republican attorney who had been guiding President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Brett Kavanaugh, through the confirmation process will now have a vote on Kavanaugh’s confirmation.
In choosing Kyl, Ducey tapped a figure who is well-liked by both Trump’s political team and McCain’s family and allies. However, with Kyl saying he won’t run for re-election, it also leaves open the possibility of a bruising primary in 2020.
