Domenech, who publishes the online journal the Federalist, married Meghan McCain in November.

Last week, Meghan McCain said her father was doing well.

“My dad’s doing well,” she said while appearing on “The View,” according to the Arizona Republic. “I want to thank everyone at Mayo Clinic — especially his doctors and nurses. I think it just takes a really special person to become a doctor or a nurse, because I could never do it, and it’s really an amazing thing.”
