What’s Next for McCain?

John McCain of Arizona has reached his six-year term limit as the ranking Republican of the Armed Services Committee and is not expected to seek a waiver from GOP rules.

Oklahoma’s Tom Coburn, the investigation panel’s current ranking member, is expected to succeed Susan Collins of Maine as the top Republican on the full committee. Like McCain, Collins is term-limited for the gavel.
