Cindy McCain endorses ‘good & honest man’ Joe Biden: ‘He will lead us with dignity’

The late John McCain had many friends across the aisle. While he was a diehard Republican, he enjoyed lifelong friendships with a number of Democrats, including Joe Biden. They were such good friends and their families were close as well. The late senator’s widow, Cindy McCain, is also a diehard Republican and she was particularly close to the Mike Pence wing of the party. I actually thought the fact that Pence is still vice president would mean that she would either endorse Trump-Pence or merely stay silent this election cycle. But no. Cindy McCain has endorsed Joe Biden:

While Cindy McCain doesn’t reference it explicitly in her tweets, she spoke to the NY Times and said that she decided to endorse Biden after the Atlantic story came out about what Donald Trump really thinks about soldiers and veterans, namely that they’re all suckers and losers and he doesn’t understand why anyone would *want* to serve their country. That’s antithetical to the McCain family’s code. There are like four or five generations of McCains who have served in uniform. And yes, let’s not kid ourselves – if this was a Mike Pence presidency, Cindy would easily endorse him. This is all about being anti-Trump specifically.

Also: a McCain endorsement probably will make a difference in Arizona, a swing state.
