Specific details on the meeting were not immediately available. 

"Upon scheduling a trip to Arizona, Governor Pence's office reached out to John McCain to request a meeting. John McCain was happy to welcome Governor Pence to Phoenix, and they enjoyed a very friendly meeting, during which they discussed a variety of issues," Romero said in a statement.
