Washington, D.C. U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) released the following statement regarding the death of Congressman C.W. Bill Young (R-FL):

“Floridians have lost one of the greatest public servants we’ve ever had in our state’s history.  For over a half century, Bill fought tirelessly for the Tampa Bay region and to strengthen Florida’s role as a critical part of our national defense.  Largely because of Bill Young, many of our nation’s brave men and women in uniform have called Florida home at some point in their careers, with many of them spending their golden retirement years here.  Throughout Bill’s career, our military and veterans have had no greater champion than him.  My thoughts and prayers are with Bill’s wife, Beverly, and their entire family.”
