Gov. Ducey cancels campaign events out of respect for McCain

Arizona governor Doug Ducey's office is canceling all campaign events until Sen. John McCain is laid to rest.

"The governor will be voting today, but we will not be making it a media event, " his office said in a statement.

There will be a church service Thursday morning, then the Senator will be moved to Washington to lie in state in the Capitol rotunda, followed by a service Saturday at the National Cathedral and burial at the Naval Academy on Sunday.
