Central Coast politicians are paying tribute to Sen. John McCain, who died Saturday at the age of 81.

McCain was a revered prisoner of water and independent voice in the Republican Party. He had been battling brain cancer for over a year.

Senator Dianne Feinstein posted a series of tweets, chronicling her experiences with the American hero.

Congressman Salud Carbajal called McCain ‘an example for all Americans.’

Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham said the former Senator was a ‘true American hero and patriot.’
