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.
John McCain was a leader, a public servant and a patriot, and he’ll be terribly missed.

Congressman Salud Carbajal called McCain ‘an example for all Americans.’
Assemblyman Jordan Cunningham said the former Senator was a ‘true American hero and patriot.’
