The news that Sen. John McCain had chosen to end medical treatment for brain cancer was met with response from around the country.

Statement From Rep. Martha McSally:

TUCSON –  Congresswoman Martha McSally has issued the following statement after hearing the news that Senator John McCain will no longer be treated for brain cancer.

" John McCain's life has been one of service and sacrifice. His strength and resolve enabled him to endure 5.5 years as a prisoner of war, and to continue to serve his country for decades. I have been praying for Senator McCain and his family during this difficult time, and continue to ask for God's grace and comfort for him and his family."

Ann Kirkpatrick, former AZ Representative from District 1, released the following statement on McCain:

"Arizonans know that there's no one tougher than John McCain. Roger and I are sending our compassion and love to John and Cindy, and their large, loving family. 
As the McCain family has faced down an aggressive form of cancer armed with love and bravery, it is worth remembering that millions of Americans held onto their own health coverage as a result of John's courageous vote last summer. He will be in the thoughts of millions of people across America this weekend."
