Graham revealed in a CNN interview that Trump phoned him after he made an emotional speech on the Senate floor Tuesday urging Americans to "be more like John McCain".

Brewer described McCain's wife, Cindy, as "very composed" as she approached the casket and put her cheek against the flag. Ducey is also headed for a tough reelection battle in the fall, and is seeking a smooth replacement process.

Cindy McCain, wife of, Sen. John McCain's final send-off, President Donald Trump is scheduled to headline a campaign rally, according to The New York Times.

"Given the political world as it is today, why go do this?"

Part of the 8-mile (13-kilometer) route was lined with USA flags and campaign-style placards that simply read "McCain".

He is the namesake for the McCain Institute for International Leadership, a Washington, D.C. -based think tank tied to ASU, and he's spoken at the University on several occasions.

Members of the public who received tickets for McCain's service as well as plenty of invited guests were seen gathered outside the North Phoenix Baptist Church.

McCain will be buried Sunday at the US Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, in a private funeral service.

"When he [Trump] says something bad about John, it pisses me off", Graham said on CNN.

Former military members in shorts and T-shirts stopped and saluted the closed casket flanked by National Guard members at the Arizona Capitol. Jeff Flake, former Sen.

John McCain was "Arizona's favourite adopted son", Governor Doug Ducey said on what would have been McCain's 82nd birthday.

Ducey said John McCain was about more than politics, he "brought us above politics".

Ray Riordan, an 87-year-old Navy veteran who fought in the Korean War, came from Payson, Arizona.

The change does present some concerns, however.

"Senator Hatch believes it's a worthy goal and looks forward to working with the majority leader to accomplish it", Hatch's deputy chief of staff, Matt Whitlock, said Monday afternoon. "He and John had a number of issues on which they flat out didn't agree, but they didn't personalize it", Ted Kaufman, a former DE senator who is close to Biden, told USA Today, after describing their friendship as two football players who would play hard for opposing teams but meet up at the bar after the game.

"I don't talk about the bad side of the war", Le said.

Another memorial service will be held at Washington National Cathedral on Saturday, where former presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush will deliver eulogies, a personal request McCain asked of Obama and Bush months ago.

A McCain family spokesperson said the Capitol doors would remain open as long as there are people in line preparing to honor John McCain.

Arizona Cardinals' receiver Larry Fitzgerald is scheduled to will speak during the service in Phoenix, preceding former US vice-president Joe Biden.
