Joe Biden is expected to pick Cindy McCain, the widow of the late Sen. John McCain, to be US ambassador to the UK, The Times of London reported Saturday.
An Anglophile and lifelong Republican, McCain, 66, issued a widely viewed campaign ad for Biden this year.
That support has been viewed as crucial to Biden winning Arizona, where McCain’s husband was a senator from 1987 until his death from cancer in 2018.
“It’s hers if she wants it,” a Biden insider told the Times. She delivered Arizona. They know that.”
Tony Gardner, President Obama’s ambassador to the EU, is also being considered, the paper said.
