The State of the Union address is one of the most important speeches a President can give. But what is the importance behind such a moment. Veuer’s Nick Cardona (@nickcardona93) has that story.Buzz60


Ailing Sen. John McCain has not returned to Washington, D.C., and is not expected to attend Tuesday night’s State of the Union address from President Donald Trump.

McCain, R-Ariz., is battling an aggressive form of brain cancer and was hospitalized in December in Bethesda, Maryland, for a viral infection and side effects to his ongoing chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

McCain’s office has not provided an official update on the senator’s health since Dec. 17 but, at that time, he signaled he looked forward to returning to the Senate in January, a goal he now appears certain to miss.
