John McCain
John McCain was the senior U.S. Senator from Arizona.

We mourn the passing of Senator John McCain, who served on the Advisory Board of Terror Free Tomorrow since our founding, and lent his unwavering support for fourteen years. He served, as he had the country, regardless of political consideration or partisan advantage. We will miss him dearly.
