U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell released the following statement today regarding the passing of New Jersey's longest-serving U.S. Senator, Frank Lautenberg:
"The entire Senate is saddened today by the loss of our colleague, Senator Frank Lautenberg. The Senate's last remaining World War II veteran, Frank was a patriot whose success in business and politics made him a great American success story and a standout even within the fabled Greatest Generation. Elaine and I send our condolences to Bonnie, the Lautenberg children, and the entire Lautenberg family."
