McCain feeling well, returning after holidays

A statement from his office late Sunday said he would undergo physical therapy and rehabilitation at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona. It is unclear when McCain might return to Washington. House and Senate negotiators agreed Friday on a compromise bill that offers a substantial tax cut for corporations and across-the-board cuts for individuals, with final votes in the respective chambers expected this week, Fox News previously reported.

As recently as last week, McCain's office released statements indicating that it wasn't out of the question that he would return before the Senate breaks for the holiday, meaning that there was still a chance that he would still be there in order to case a vote in favor of the tax bill.

Sen. McCain's son-in-law, Ben Domenech, told CBS's "Face the Nation" his father-in-law is "doing well" and "in good spirits", despite the hospitalization and the hard of a very serious glioblastoma diagnosis.

He left for Arizona on Sunday. He has been undergoing treatment since.

The trip means McCain nearly certainly will miss a crucial vote on the GOP-backed tax reform package this week. Without McCain's vote, Republicans can afford just one "no" to pass the bill 50-49 with Vice President Mike Pence registering the tiebreaking vote. President Trump addressed reporters Sunday saying that McCain will return to DC if needed.

"Senator McCain has responded well to treatment he received at Walter Reed Medical Center for a viral infection and continues to improve".

"An evaluation of his underlying cancer shows he is responding positively to ongoing treatment", Gilbert said of McCain. Marco Rubio (R-FL) and Bob Corker (R-TN) announced their support for the bill after winning some amendments or provisions.

"But he will come back if we need his vote".

It is unclear how McCain's absence will impact the Senate's upcoming vote on the tax reform legislation.

McCain rebounded quickly, but his condition has appeared to worsen in recent weeks. McCain eventually began using a wheelchair, and members of his staff pushed him where he needed to go.
