The Hill: Warren: McCain always told me to get in the fight and ‘throw some punches’

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) honored the late Sen. John McCain in the Capitol Rotunda on Friday, saying the Arizona Republican always encouraged her to get into the fight and “throw some punches.”  

“When John McCain and I worked together, he’d say: ‘Show some fight. Get in there – throw some punches,’ ” Warren tweeted as lawmakers gathered in front of McCain's flag-draped casket as it lay in state Friday.

“That was his approach to life – if you’re gonna be in a fight, you better give it your all. It was an honor to serve with him. A patriot, a maverick, a fighter to the end.”
