The late Sen. John McCain would have wanted a Hispanic woman to succeed him, his former campaign manager said, AZ Central reported.

Rick Davis on Monday said McCain would not have wanted a white male to replace him.

"He's always been someone who's encouraged participation in politics, especially in the Republican Party, with minorities and women," AZ Central quoted Davis from a news conference. "I think a Hispanic woman probably would've been his pick for a successor if he would've lived long enough."

Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey will appoint a successor to McCain sometime after his funeral Sunday.

That successor, which has to be a Republican by law, would fill McCain's seat until November 2020, when another election will be held to serve out the remainder of McCain's term, which ends in January 2023.
