Cindy McCain, the widow of the late, former Republican Senator John McCain, is set to be rewarded for her loyalty towards the Biden’s if a new report is to be believed.
According to this report, McCain, who along with her husband were strictly opposed to former President Donald Trump, will be offered an ambassadorial position within the Biden Administration, as a reward for her support during the 2020 election.
Sen. John McCain served as the Republican Senator for Arizona, a state that President Joe Biden was able to win back with the support of their family.
According to Politico, McCain is set to be rewarded for her support to President Biden by being nominated to serve as the US Ambassador to the United Nations World Food Programme, with the agency being based in the beautiful city of Rome.
McCain has served in similar roles before, with her work for the McCain Institute for International Leadership at Arizona State University being centered around leading the fight against world hunger and human trafficking.
However, a role within the Biden Administration for McCain has been teased and set up for quite some time.
She served as a member of Biden’s transition team into office, aiding with the peaceful transfer of power from the Trump Administration.
As well as her role in this team, when asked in February if she would be willing to accept a formal role within the Biden Administration, she answered yes.
Speculation had also mounted during the transition period that McCain could be nominated to serve as the US Ambassador to the United Kingdom, yet that did not materialize.
McCain’s support for Biden
The support given by the McCain family to the Biden family was pretty natural but was only to be enhanced after former President Donald Trump launched a series of attacks against the late Senator John McCain, claiming that he wasn’t a war hero.
Sen. McCain made his disdain for President Trump known before his death, despite being a popular Republican figure.
Cindy McCain would then go onto explain the reason why she decided to support Joe Biden in the 2020 election.
Speaking in an Op-Ed for Desert News, McCain claimed that Biden had already made clear how he would lead the country thanks to the work he did in the Senate, where he would often put country before party.
She states this is also how her husband worked throughout his 30 years of service in the Senate, where he and Joe Biden crossed roads.
Cindy then went onto state that her late husband would be proud of Biden’s election win, claiming it was the ‘right’ thing to do.
