The View’s newest co-host conservative personality Meghan McCain got married to her long time boyfriend, Ben Donenech,35, yesterday. The new husband of Arizona Senator John McCain’s daughter is a conservative blogger and writer and founder of the conservative publication ‘The Federalist’. The wedding which had a western style theme, took place on the McCain family ranch in Sedona, Arizona.
McCain,33, wore an off white lace wedding gown topped off with a fur stole. The couple only became engaged in July 2017, shortly after McCain was hired as a new co-host on the long running ABC talk show ‘The View’.
Her mother Cindy McCain proudly looked on, as her husband Senator McCain walked their daughter down the aisle. The senior McCain had a cast on his leg and walked with a cane, he had a torn Achilles tendon. The wedding took place a mere four months after it was revealed that the Senator was battling a very aggressive form of glioblastoma brain cancer. Meghan said publicly that it was important for her that her hero, her father walk her down the aisle. She felt if the wedding was delayed, that may have not been possible.
Many guests included people that worked on the Senator’s two failed presidential campaigns. After the brief ceremony the couple surrounded by close friends and family members danced to western music. McCain other than his job of walking his daughter down the aisle spent most of the evening seated at the family table. The wedding planner Jim Bullock said the Western styled theme wedding hosted a cigar bar, and gambling casino with roulette wheels, poker and slot machines. The menu included all wild game items, Bullock said that the menu was in conjunction with a Western style wedding. McCain had been absent from ‘The View’ the last three days, is set to return to her job on Monday.
