Sen. John McCain, Republican of Arizona, said House Speaker John Boehner’s resignation should send a message to all Republicans: Stop the nasty infighting.
“I like John Boehner and I am sorry it is happening,” Sen. McCain told Washington Times columnist Tim Constantine.
“I hope it is a lesson to us and the Republican Party…lets sit down with the wings of the party and understand who the adversary is.
“We are all Republicans. Lets stop fighting with each other,” he added.
Mr. Boehner, Ohio Republican, announced Friday that he will resign from Congress at the end of October.
