The widow of Republican Sen. John McCain, Cindy McCain, will be joining Joe Biden’s presidential transition team if he happens to win the election in November.
According to ABC News, “McCain is the second Republican on the 16-member transition advisory board, joining Bob McDonald, the former Procter & Gamble Co. chief executive who headed the Department of Veterans Affairs under President Barack Obama.”
McCain has already publicly endorsed Biden. Last week she claimed that “Biden is by far the best candidate in the race.”
Ted Kaufman, one of five co-chairs of Biden’s transition team, cited McCain’s experience in business and philanthropy and her advocacy for women and children.
“This transition is like no other, preparing amid the backdrop of a global health crisis and struggling economy,” Kaufman, a longtime Biden aide who was appointed to fill his Senate seat when he was elected vice president, said in a statement.
