Washington, DC - Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer wants the Senate's oldest office building to be named after the late Senator John McCain.
Schumer released a statement saying he will be introducing a resolution to rename the historic Russell building after the 81-year-old Republican.
“As you go through life, you meet few truly great people. John McCain was one of them. His dedication to his country and the military were unsurpassed, and maybe most of all, he was a truth teller - never afraid to speak truth to power in an era where that has become all too rare. The Senate, the United States, and the world are lesser places without John McCain.
Nothing will overcome the loss of Senator McCain, but so that generations remember him I will be introducing a resolution to rename the Russell building after him.”
