Joe Biden allegedly called John McCain before his healthcare vote on Friday

Joe Biden called John McCain ahead of the Senate’s vote on the healthcare repeal and lobbied for the lawmaker to go against it, according to reports.

Senator McCain’s shocking vote was reportedly influenced by Biden during a phone call from the former vice president in which they talked about McCain’s brain cancer.

In an emotional talk with the Arizona Republican, Biden is said to have discussed McCain’s glioblastoma diagnosis, the same tumor that killed his son Beau in 2015.

After the reported phone call, McCain went into the Senate and stunned fellow lawmakers when he voted against his party’s ‘skinny’ repeal of Obamacare on Friday.
