John McCain will return to Arizona after hospitalization, miss GOP tax vote

Sen. Mc Cain returning to Arizona will miss tax bill vote

But GOP leaders are likely to have enough Republicans to pass the measure.

'Thank you to everyone for their kind words, ' she wrote. "I'm feeling well & looking forward to returning to work after the holidays".

Mr. McCain's office said in a statement on Sunday night that the senator, who had been hospitalized recently in the Washington area, would undergo physical therapy and rehabilitation at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona and "looks forward to returning to Washington in January".

Sen. McCain is not expected to be in Washington for the tax vote, CNN confirmed.

The sources described McCain as looking increasingly frail and said he has not spoken up in recent GOP meetings the way he had before, in addition to his absence this week for treatment at Walter Reed Medical Center.

In a statement provided by Mr. McCain's office on Sunday, Dr. Mark R. Gilbert, chief of the neuro-oncology branch at the National Institutes of Health's National Cancer Institute, offered an upbeat assessment of the senator's health.

'Well, John, I'm happy to say that he's doing well, ' Domenech answered Face the Nation host John Dickerson, who had asked about the Republican lawmaker.

Sen. McCain announced in July that he had a glioblastoma, an aggressive brain tumor, after doctor's discovered it while removing of a blood clot.

He'll miss this week's vote this week on the tax bill.

The Republicans were also without Sen. "And it's too bad, he's going through a very tough time, no question about it, but he will come back if we need his vote". Vice President Mike Pence postponed a scheduled trip to Israel last week to preside over the vote. He voted for the initial version of the tax plan, which includes sweeping tax cuts and initially passed the Senate with 51 votes. If approved, the measure would head to Trump for his signature on what will be his first major legislative accomplishment since taking office 11 months ago.

McCain is unlikely to return to Washington this year, one of the sources said. McCain's vote scuttled the seven-year effort by the GOP to dismantle much of President Barack Obama's health care law. McCain eventually began using a wheelchair, with members of his staff pushing him where he needed to go.
