McCain Welcomed Back To Senate With Standing Ovation

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) returned to the Senate shortly before 3 p.m. on Tuesday, less than a week after he announced that he had been diagnosed with glioblastoma, an extremely aggressive form of brain cancer. McCain came to vote on the motion to proceed on the health care bill, and he voted “aye.” 

Upon McCain’s arrival to the Senate chamber, his fellow senators stood in unison and gave him a standing ovation. McCain received hugs and handshakes from several of his Senate colleagues, including Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY). 

Watch below:

Following the tiebreak, McCain–who still has bandages from his craniotomy procedure–delivered a floor speech. For this, he was called a “certified badass” and “truly amazing.”

Welcome back, Sen. McCain.
