Graham on McCain: ‘I’d Name the Capitol After the Guy — It’d Be John McCain, DC’

Responding to the question if the Russell Senate Office Building should be renamed after the late Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) suggested Thursday renaming Washington D.C. to “John McCain, D.C.”

“Yeah, I don’t know,” Graham said in an interview with “CBS This Morning.” “I’d name the Capitol after the guy. It’d be John McCain, D.C.

He continued, “I want to see what the family thinks. The Capitol Visitor Center — he hated that place. It turned out to be marvelous. What if the first thing you saw was the life of John McCain? What if it was the John McCain Capitol Visitor Center? That would be perfect in this regard: It would be an educational moment for young people to know that men like John McCain existed, then they’ll find out about other men and women that made this place truly great, and it would annoy the hell out of him, so it would be my way of getting back at him.
