Will Cindy McCain be appointed as John McCain's congressional successor?

Cindy McCain, wife of the deceased Republican U.S. Senator John McCain, has emerged as one of the more prominent names of possible appointees to succeed him, along with several former members of Arizona’s congressional delegation.
 
The appointment rests with Arizona Republican Governor Doug Ducey, who has said he would wait until after McCain’s burial on Sunday to announce a decision and is not considering himself for the job. 

 

Under state law, the replacement named by Ducey would assume McCain’s seat through the 2020 U.S. general election but would need to run for election that year to fill out the rest of McCain’s term, which ends in January 2023.

 

In that regard McCain's wife might be considered as a proper “caretaker” successor without long-term political ambitions. That way the Republican Party would have more time to consider its best nominee for 2020 elections.
