"He's going to make sure that we find common ground. He's going to bring ethics and empathy back to the office, something that we are sorely in need of now. And like I said before, he's going to be a president for all people, not just Democrats," McCain told ABC News on Friday, as ballots continue to be counted in key battleground states.

Asked what her husband would have thought of the election, McCain responded: “I know John would want what is best for our country. What is best for our country is not our party. What’s best for our country is Joe Biden.”


Cindy McCain earlier this year endorsed Biden, crossing party lines to back the former vice president who has been a close family friend for years.

Cindy McCain's latest comments come as The Associated Press and Fox News have projected Biden as the winner of Arizona. Other news outlets have not yet called the race, which is one of several key states that remain tight as mail-in ballots are still tallied. 

Mike Murphy, a GOP strategist and former adviser for John McCain’s 2000 presidential bid, joked this week that Arizona flipping blue, "could be the revenge of Senator John McCain." Other social media users also joked Biden winning the state was the work of John McCain's "ghost."
