Cindy McCain, the widow of the late GOP Sen. John McCain, says she is open to potentially serving in the Biden administration.

“I will serve in whatever way I can be helpful to this administration and president,” she said Wednesday morning during an interview with ABC News host George Stephanopoulos. 

“I didn’t do this to gain a position, I did this for my country,” she added, referring to a list she had compiled of Republicans to send to President-elect Joe Biden’s transition team that she would recommend for the administration. 

“But if I can help serve in any way possible, I will.”

She told Stephanopoulos Wednesday that “things are happening,” and there are “many positions that are going to occur in this administration, and I know Republicans will play a role in that.” She did not elaborate.

McCain also said she thought her late husband would have been “excited” to work with Biden, saying the president-elect is someone who “knows and understands the issues” and “who has the ability to […] cross the divide and encourage people to work together in a civil manner.”

“I think he would tell Joe he has great confidence in him, he knows he’s going to be a good president in terms of bringing the country together,” she added.

John McCain and outgoing President Trump had a contentious relationship, despite being members of the same political party, and traded barbs up until the senator’s death due to cancer in August 2018.

McCain — who had been criticized for endorsed Biden for president over Trump — recently fired back at Arizona Republicans, tweeting earlier this month that it was “time for some soul-searching in the Arizona GOP.”


John McCain was a war hero who survived five years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, served three decades in Congress and went on to become the Republican Party’s nominee for president in 2008.
