You’ve probably heard by now, Senator John McCain is facing a tough battle with an aggressive form of brain cancer. We’ve had our fair share of disagreements with the senator (often strong ones), but we also remember how he stood against bigotry and incendiary discourse during the 2008 campaign, how steadfast he was in the face of those who advocated for torture, how he advocated for pragmatic and comprehensive immigration reform, and how often he placed principles before politics. American leaders from across the political spectrum are rooting for McCain to beat this, and we would like to join them in wishing the senator a speedy recovery. Our thoughts and prayers are with him and his family as they take on this fight.
