Cindy McCain, the wife of the late Senator John McCain (R-AZ), is set to defeat Donald Trump this November.
In a new ad published by the Biden campaign, McCain highlighted the strong relationship Biden had with her husband and called on the American people to vote for a leader who understands what it means to the country serving instead of one's own ego.
"Now more than ever we need a president who puts service before himself, a president who leads with courage and compassion, not with the ego," she said in the ad. "Joe will always fight for the American people, just like John."
Cindy McCain said:
My husband had known Joe Biden for a long time. They traveled together thousands of kilometers and visited troops overseas. And they developed the kind of friendship that you don't see too often. In the Senate they disagreed on almost everything. They would fight like hell on the floor and then eat together. Because they always put their friendship and country first. Now more than ever we need a president who puts service before himself, a president who leads with courage and compassion, not the ego. A president who respects the sacrifices of our service members and their families. A president who honors our fallen heroes and a president who brings out the best in us, not the worst. Joe Biden has dedicated his life to this country and worked across the gang to get things done. Joe will always fight for the American people, just like John.
Cindy McCain could move indecisive voters towards Joe Biden
There aren't many undecided voters left at this stage of the campaign, but Cindy McCain's vocal support for Joe Biden could push some of those voters into the Democratic column in key states.
As Iraq war veteran and Righteous Media President Paul Rieckhoff said Saturday, McCain could have a major impact on the campaign as it goes down the final stretch.
"It doesn't just move people in the military and veterans, it moves people who care about the military and the veterans," he said. "Especially in places like Pennsylvania, Florida, and Arizona, you might be able to move people with a strong ad from Cindy McCain."
"I think it's really important," he added.
