In a statement to CNN, the Klobuchar campaign, however, did not offer any excuse for the family to McCain.

“Senator Klobuchar has had a long friendship with Senator McCain, has defended him against President Trump’s attacks in the past, and it has given a deep respect for his family,” Klobuchar campaign Communications Director, Tim Hogan.

“While they just share a memory, she continues to believe that the best stories about Senator McCain, not about the views that he had about President Trump: you are about McCain’s own bravery and heroism.”
