Former Senator John McCain's legislative director Joe Donoghue works at his desk in Senator Jon Kyl's office on Capitol Hill in December. Finally, he served as a de facto counselor for a staff working for someone they adored, grieving with them after he died. And Sharon Soderstrom, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s chief of staff, got her first Senate job in 1983 and never left. Aides to McCain, new in the Senate, hired him to work the mail room for 20 hours a week. “I need to learn who Joe Donoghue is without John McCain,” he said.
