Sen. John McCain made some very strong statements on the radio Monday, saying he and his fellow Republicans stand united against any Supreme Court pick coming from Hillary Clinton.

During that same interview, he also hesitated about Donald Trump's High Court picks.

After making those comments, Arizona's senior senator attended an event at the Chandler Chamber of Commerce where he dodged questions.

McCain's Senate office later issued the following statement regarding his Supreme Court comments:

"Senator McCain believes you can only judge people by their record and Hillary Clinton has a clear record of supporting liberal judicial nominees. That being said, Senator McCain will, of course, thoroughly examine the record of any Supreme Court nominee put before the Senate and vote for or against that individual based on their qualifications as he has done throughout his career."
