McCain Has Been Influential On VA, Immigration Bills

August 01, 2014

One of the leading forces behind the VA legislation — both behind the scenes and in front of the cameras — has been Arizona Sen. John McCain.

Arizona Republic National Political Reporter Dan Nowicki says McCain’s influence was considerable.

And in Arizona we talk about illegal immigration a lot. McCain and Arizona Sen. Jeff Flake were heavily involved in the bipartisan Gang of Eight, writing immigration reform legislation. It didn't go anywhere in the House. Have they been frustrated by that lack of action?
