Democrats and Republicans were able to put their differences aside on Wednesday night and united in support of their colleague and friend Senator John McCain.
Sen. McCain was diagnosed with glioblastoma, an aggressive form of brain cancer, according to his office on Wednesday.
Former Democratic President, Barack Obama, was quick to tweet his support for his good friend, but also the man who once ran against him.
John McCain is an American hero & one of the bravest fighters I've ever known. Cancer doesn't know what it's up against. Give it hell, John.
