The Arizona Republican who narrowly lost the election for one of the state’s U.S. Senate seats in November will fill the other one in January. Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican, announced Tuesday he had appointed U.S. Rep. Martha McSally to the seat of the late Sen. John McCain. She will replace Sen. John Kyl, a former senator who temporarily filled the role after McCain’s death from brain cancer in August. McSally will serve until the 2020 election, when voters will elect someone to serve the final two years of McCain’s term.
