Schumer Announces Resolution To Rename Russell Building After McCain

‘I’d like decades from now little children to ask their parents who was John McCain, and they’ll explain his sacrifice, his patriotism, and most of all his fidelity to do the right thing as he saw it’

SCHUMER: "You don’t meet many great men as you go through life. John McCain was one of them. For his patriotism, for his strength, for his ability to speak truth to power, and for him to do personal acts of kindness quietly over and over again. I want generations in the Senate and in the world to remember him. So I’m introducing a resolution to rename the Russell Senate Office Building after John McCain. I’d like decades from now little children to ask their parents who was John McCain, and they’ll explain his sacrifice, his patriotism, and most of all his fidelity to do the right thing as he saw it, and when he did the wrong thing, to change."
