Following the death of Republican U.S. Senator John McCain on August 25, 2018, Governor Doug Ducey was required to appoint a Republican [1] to fill the vacancy in McCain's Senate seat. [2] In September 2018, Ducey appointed former U.S. Senator Jon Kyl to fill McCain's seat until after the Special Election of November 2020. This will determine who serves the remainder of the term until January 2023. Kyl has announced that he does not intend to run to complete the term. [3]
