[Ed. – Quid pro quo for ‘two respected Republicans’ from Arizona.]
McCain, the widow of the late Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), has been a vocal critic of President Trump and endorsed Biden during his campaign. She is a known Anglophile, the Independent noted, and is thought to be a front-runner in return for helping Biden flip Arizona.
“It’s hers if she wants it,” a source told the Times. “She delivered Arizona. They know that.”
The Hill has reached out to Biden’s transition team for comment.
Biden became the first Democrat to win Arizona since 1996. Some Democrats say it was endorsements from McCain and former Sen. Jeff Flake — two respected Republicans from the state — that pushed Biden over the top.
