The Independent reports:
President-elect Joe Biden is reportedly expected to name Cindy McCain as his ambassador to the UK. The widow of the late Republican Senator John McCain has been a fierce critic of Donald Trump and crossed party lines to endorse Mr Biden.
Ms McCain, 66, is a known Anglophile and thought to be a frontrunner for the job as a reward for helping to win the state of Arizona for the Democrats. A source told The Times: “It’s hers if she wants it. She delivered Arizona. They know that.”
It is not clear if Ms McCain would be interested in the role. After her husband’s death, she has concentrated on philanthropic work related to her husband’s charitable foundation.
The current UK ambassador, New York Jets owner Woody Johnson, got the gig after raising millions for the Trump campaign. And then he pressured Boris Johnson to move the British Open to a Trump resort. Something something swamp, amirite?
