"There is much-unfinished business, including confirmation of President Trump's nominees for judicial and executive branch positions, and I look forward to getting to work on behalf of my fellow Arizonans", Kyl said in a statement. "I think it was to his benefit she [did] so".

In December 2017, amid rumors McCain was considering resigning his seat, Ducey sent a harsh message to politicians lobbying for him for the appointment.
Kyl represented Arizona in the Senate from 1995 to 2013.
