Amy Klobuchar has already gone this route, allegedly quoting the late John McCain at a recent campaign stop.
In her remarks before supporters in Iowa, Klobuchar recounted how she sat beside McCain and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) during President Trump’s inaugural address

McCain’s daughter Meghan, who is currently working as a television host for The View, fired back at Klobuchar via Twitter.
