PHOENIX — President-elect Joe Biden is reportedly considering Cindy McCain as the next ambassador to the U.K.

McCain, who is the widow of the late Sen. John McCain, supported Biden during the run-up to the 2020 presidential election and is quite familiar with the U.K., according to The Times of London.

A Biden source told the Times that McCain is a forgone candidate for the ambassadorship if she’s interested in the position.

“It’s hers if she wants it,” the source told The Times. “She delivered Arizona. They know that.”

Biden is the first Democratic candidate to win the state of Arizona since Bill Clinton in 1996.

He received the support of several Arizona Republicans, including McCain and former senator Jeff Flake.

McCain spoke during the 2020 Democratic National Convention during the summer and was a member of Biden’s transition advisory board, according to The Hill.

She did not confirm whether or not she’d join Biden’s administration during an appearance on ABC’s “The View” on Nov. 9, but spoke highly of the president-elect’s leadership selections.

“This is an administration that’s going to be all-inclusive and there is a role for Republicans in the administration.”

Biden has said he’d be willing to pick Republicans to fill cabinet openings as a way to revive bipartisanship in the nation’s capital.
