Senator John McCain Is Set to Return for Tuesday's Crucial Health Care Vote
Senator John McCain, R-Ariz., will return to the Senate on Tuesday, his office announced on Monday night. McCain, 80, has been home in Arizona following a brain tumor diagnosis.
The announcement of McCain's return comes as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell plans to call a vote Tuesday to begin debate on proposed health care legislation.
“Senator McCain looks forward to returning to the United States Senate tomorrow to continue working on important legislation, including health care reform, the National Defense Authorization Act, and new sanctions on Russia, Iran and North Korea," his office said in a statement.
With McCain's return - and barring any other absences - there will now be a full compliment of senators on hand for the health care test vote.
