The family of the late Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., will back former Vice President Joe Biden for president, the Washington Examiner is reporting.
The McCain family intends to support Biden through the Democratic primaries, the Examiner reported. The McCains also would throw their support behind him in a race against President Donald Trump in the general election, should Biden make it.
Sources tell the Examiner, McCain’s widow, Cindy, and daughter Meghan, 34, will publicly offer their support in an attempt to get Trump out of office in 2020.
A McCain family source said there have been talks with the McCains and Biden family about his 2020 run.
“The question is going to be timing and coordinating with the Biden campaign,” the source said. “There are a lot of moving parts there and (Biden's campaign is) not necessarily organized. I wouldn't expect a formal family endorsement because some of McCain's family is still in the military, but I do expect Cindy to speak out at some point."
The senator died last August after a battle with brain cancer. He and Trump had been locked in a feud during the 2016 campaign. And in 2017, McCain cast the deciding vote that end the GOP’s effort to repeal Obamacare. Trump has remained critical of McCain since the senator’s death.
