Sen. John McCain of Arizona

CNN is reporting Sen. John McCain has announced he is heading home to Arizona to continue recovering from the side effects of chemotherapy for a brain tumor and will not be in Washington for the tax vote this week.

The Republican senator was admitted into the hospital on Wednesday after missing a third straight day of votes in the Senate. McCain suffers from a type of brain tumor called a glioblastoma. He was diagnosed with the tumor following surgery to remove a blood clot in July.

The final vote on the Republican tax bill is expected to take place early this week.

According to Donald Trump, McCain told him he would return to Washington DC if his vote became necessary.
