Sen. John McCain suggested Sunday that President Obama should nominate an Ebola czar to lead the nation’s response to the deadly virus.

“From spending time here in Arizona, my constituents are not comforted. There has to be more reassurance given to them,” the Arizona Republican said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”

“We don’t know exactly who’s in charge. There has to be some kind of czar,” Mr. McCain added.

The request comes several years after the former presidential candidate criticized Mr. Obama for having “more czars than the Romanovs — who ruled Russia for three centuries.”
