Like McCain, Woods has been soured by the politics of President Donald Trump.
Kyl, a Republican who retired from the Senate in 2012 to spend moretime with his family, is now shepherding Trump's nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the US Supreme Court.
Ducey is expected to hold a news conference Tuesday to officially announce Kyl as McCain's successor in the Senate.
Asked about a past remark expressing concern about Trump, Kyl replied, "I stand by that comment". "Kudos to Senator Kyl for his willingness to serve once again".
It was the sometimes more moderate McCain who a year ago thwarted fellow Republicans' attempts to undo Obamacare in a dramatic vote shortly after being diagnosed with cancer in July 2017. By state law the senator will have to be a member of the same party as the departing one, in this case the GOP.
"Jon Kyl has served as Brett Kavanaugh's "sherpa" through the nomination process and will undoubtedly vote for his confirmation which puts many rights we take for granted at risk, chief among them are women's reproductive rights, civil rights, voting rights, environmental rights and workers rights", Garcia said in a statement. "John and I served the people of Arizona for almost two decades, and in that spirit, along with Senator [Jeff] Flake, I will do my best to ensure Arizonans are well represented in the Senate".
Veteran Republican consultant and former McCain aide Doug Cole called Kyl a good, safe pick.
"He understands how the Senate functions and will make an immediate and positive impact benefiting all Arizonans".
McCain's widow, Cindy, tweeted her support for the appointment, calling his appointment "a great tribute to John". And if Kyl were to leave before November 2020, Ducey would have to name another caretaker for the seat. "Now, Sen. Kyl can cast a vote for Kavanaugh's confirmation".
Jon Kyl served with John McCain as a United States Senator representing Arizona from 1995 to 2013.
"John McCain was an American hero and we were very blessed to have him as a senator", Ducey said at a press conference.
"I will not seek this seat in 2020, nor any other office in the future", Kyl said.
Ducey, responding to Cindy McCain on Twitter, said he is "deeply grateful to Senator Kyl for agreeing to succeed his friend and colleague of so many years". ". There is no replacing John McCain, but the law requires me to do it".
"Jon Kyl has a record he's worked across the aisle and he has been lauded by both sides of the aisle", Ducey said.
