RUBIO MOURNS THE LOSS OF SENATOR FRANK LAUTENBERG
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement regarding the death of Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) at the age of 89:
"As one of Congress' last World War II veterans, Frank Lautenberg was a real American hero. I have been privileged to serve with him in the Senate for over two years and to have gotten to know him as public servant and the great person he was. Frank served his country and state with courage and dignity, and I will always remember the way he tirelessly championed the cause of veterans like him who have sacrificed so much for America.
"My wife Jeanette and I will always remember Frank for his kindness and generosity. As we settled into life in the Senate, Frank and his wife Bonnie were always incredibly supportive and helpful with their advice and guidance. They helped make our transition easier, and we will always be grateful to them.
"May God bless Frank Lautenberg and may He provide comfort and strength to his family during this difficult time."
