John McCain's Voice In New Ad Calling For 'Mavericks'

The McCain Institute, a nonprofit think tank named after late Sen. John McCain, is calling for “mavericks” to vote for human rights this mid-term.

In  a new ad, McCain is heard saying, "A spirit capable of compassion, sacrifice, and endurance cannot be paralyzed by fear" and then asks voters to stand against falsehood and injustice by voting on Nov. 6.

The ads are airing nationwide, two months after McCain’s passing and two weeks before the election.
