Guest Editorial: Calling All Mavericks to Stand Up, Speak Out, and Vote

Dear Friends,
As you know, my husband dedicated his life to serving a cause greater than himself. That’s why I’m so proud to let you know about the McCain Institute’s new initiative: #MavericksNeeded.
Through this effort, we’re calling all Mavericks to stand up, speak out, and vote on November 6th. Longer-term, our initiative aims to inspire people to join the movement to advance the cause of human rights that John championed his whole life.
As part of this campaign, we’re launching a new targeted digital ad campaign urging Mavericks to join our fight at

The values John fought for weren’t just his, they are and remain American ideals — and it’s time to fight for them again. That’s what this initiative is all about.
Mavericks like you are needed now more than ever. Please share our message and encourage your friends to get involved at, take the pledge, and join us #InTheArena.
Thank you,

Cindy McCain
