Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell praised ailing Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., as a "genuine American hero" Monday in describing a weekend visit the Kentucky Republican paid to McCain and his wife at their Arizona home over the weekend.
In an address on the Senate floor, McConnell said he, McCain and McCain's wife, Cindy, "had a chance to sit on the back porch and reminisce about our friendship and all we had shared over the last 30 years."
"I told him we miss him," McConnell added. "I was confident I was speaking for everybody in the Senate in conveying our deepest respects for him and all he's done for the county in his extraordinary life."
McCain has not cast a vote on the Senate floor since December of last year due to his brain cancer diagnosis. However, McConnell noted that his colleague "doesn't have a relaxed bone in his body. And he still has plenty to say about work, I assure you."
McConnell did not reference the White House staffer who made headlines for a remark about Senator McCain dying.
