Congressman Frank Pallone, Jr. (NJ-06), released the following statement on the passing of Congressman Donald Payne (NJ-10):

I am deeply saddened to learn of the loss of my dear friend and colleague, Congressman Don Payne. Don and I came to Congress together in 1988 and I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to not only serve with him, but to develop a long-lasting friendship.

Don was a pioneer. He was the first African American elected to Congress from New Jersey, and as a Congressman, Don was a tireless champion for the disadvantaged, poor and underserved both in New Jersey and throughout the world.

I offer my sincerest and most heartfelt sympathies to Don's family and friends.
