U.S. Congressman Frank A. LoBiondo (NJ-02) today issued the following statement on the death of fellow New Jersey Congressman Donald Payne (NJ-10).
"My wife Tina and I extend our deepest sympathies to the family of Congressman Donald Payne, who served New Jersey with distinction and honor for more than two decades. His leadership was welcomed and respected at home and in the Congress. His passion for civil rights and stewardship of the Congressional Black Caucus will always be remembered. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Payne family and the residents of the 10th district who lost a champion of their interests."
