Kyl's Potential Impact on Remainder of Congressional Session

A discussion with Arizona Capitol Times editor Luige del Puerto

This week the U.S. Senate welcomed back Jon Kyl, a day after Gov. Doug Ducey appointed the Republican to the seat vacated by the late Sen. John McCain. Kyl previously served three terms before retiring in 2012 and said he will stay through the current congressional session, which ends on Jan. 3. Until then, Republicans will likely count on him for votes on key issues. Arizona 360 got analysis from Arizona Capitol Times editor Luige del Puerto.

"In Arizona, there are very few people that can get into this role right away and do the job that is expected of this position. And quite frankly Jon Kyl is at the very top of that list," del Puerto said.
