Washington, D.C. — U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement on the reported death of Florida constituent and former FBI Agent Bob Levinson, who was the longest held hostage in American history:

After years of pressing Iran for the release of American citizen and Florida resident Bob Levinson, the news relayed to his family was the one none of us ever wanted to hear,” Rubio said. “Jeanette and I send our deepest heartfelt condolences to the Levinson family. I have had the honor of getting to know his incredible family over the last decade. No family should ever have to experience what they have endured. It is my view, which I have shared with the highest levels of this Administration, that the U.S. Government should hold the evil regime accountable for this and demand the immediate release of all other American hostages held in Iran.”
