Sen. Lindsey Graham said Thursday that his close friend, Sen. John McCain, is recovering well from brain cancer.

"I was very pleased with his progress. He's making progress," the South Carolina Republican, who visited McCain in his home state of Arizona last week, told CNN's Dana Bash in an exclusive interview.

"I was very pleased with his progress. He's making progress," Graham said

McCain, 81, was diagnosed with a brain tumor in July

"We laughed a little bit. We cried a little bit. I admire him greatly and I'm hoping he can come back and be with us," Graham continued.

McCain, 81, was diagnosed with a brain tumor in July. In December, it was announced that the Arizona Republican would return home to Arizona to recover from cancer treatment instead of returning to the Senate to vote on a finalized version of the GOP-backed tax plan.
