"First and foremost, Bill Roth was my friend. Although we represented different political parties in the U.S. Senate for 30 years, we never had a harsh word for each other and never uttered a disparaging word about one another.
There is no one in public life that I trusted more than Bill Roth.
My heart goes out to Jane, Katie and Bud and their children over the loss of Bill."
