McCain wins Arizona Senate Race for sixth term

Phoenix [United States], Nov. 9 : Surviving one of the most bruising election seasons of his long political career, Senator John McCain has secured a sixth term for representing Arizona in Washington by fending off a challenge from his Democratic rival, Representative Ann Kirkpatrick.

McCain, 80, weathered a revolt from within the Republican Party as he found himself in an awkward relationship with Donald J. Trump, who last year had mocked his military service and years as a prisoner of war in Vietnam, saying: "He was a war hero because he was captured. I like people who weren't captured," reports the New York Times.
