Senator Udall: (6:35 p.m.)

  • Spoke on the friendship of Senators Mo Udall and John McCain.
    • "Despite his novice as an Arizona politician, John McCain knew enough to beg to secure a place on the interior committee. At that point Mo's decency and John's courage met. While John was new to Arizona politics, and by his own admission, could not tell a copper mine from a cotton field, he had promised being elected president of his minority Republican class. Mo graciously, without any political gain in sight, took John under his generous, broad wing. Mo taught John the power of consensus and bipartisanship, and in turn John had the guts to buck his own party many together they forged a remarkable partnership."
