Sen. John McCain’s (R-Ariz.) daughter says she voted for third-party candidate Evan McMullin for president.

Meghan McCain tweeted Thursday that she voted for McMullin, a former House GOP staffer who mounted an independent campaign in opposition to GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.

{mosads}Meghan McCain has been critical of both Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton throughout the campaign, and had suggested she would vote for a third-party candidate instead.

Her father withdrew his support from Trump last month after a recording surfaced of Trump talking about groping women without their permission.

Instead, John McCain said last month, he might write in the name of his friend Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) for president.  

Weeks into Trump’s presidential campaign, in July 2015, he drew widespread criticism for mocking McCain’s military service, sarcastically saying: “He’s a hero because he was captured? I like people that weren’t captured.”
