Rep. Matt Cartwright, D-Pa., suggested that he believes Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., will choose to vote against the Obamacare repeal and replacement bill because of McCain's brain cancer diagnosis.

Cartwright noted that the governor of McCain's state of Arizona came out in favor of the bill, which could pressure McCain to support it.

"Something tells me McCain, he's staring death in the face right now, so he's probably going to make good choices and he's not going to bend to political pressure," Cartwright told a group of voters at a Lehigh Carbon Community College in Tamaqua, Pa., on Tuesday, according to the Washington Examiner.

McCain's daughter, Meghan McCain, called Cartwright's comment "disgusting."

The congressman on Thursday posted an apology, saying his comment was "insensitive."

McCain and Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, could reprise their roles from the previous vote to repeal and replace Obamacare. Along with Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, the trio voted "nay" on the bill in July.
