On Thursday, Sen. John McCain officially broke his silence.
In the aftermath of the news that the Arizona senator developed an aggressive form of brain cancer, he’s promising to be back soon.
McCain said the following on Thursday morning: “I greatly appreciate the outpouring of support – unfortunately for my sparring partners in Congress, I’ll be back soon, so stand-by!”

McCain’s office said late Wednesday that the 80-year-old senator had been diagnosed with cancer. Doctors in Arizona removed a blood clot above his left eye last Friday. Pathology tests revealed a brain tumor associated with the clot.
McCain has been recuperating at his home in Arizona.
