Roskam Releases Statement Regarding the Passing of Senator McCain


Location: Washington, DC

Representative Peter Roskam (IL-06) released the following statement on the passing of Senator and war hero John McCain:

"This past weekend, our nation lost one of its treasures with the passing of Senator John McCain. A hero and a patriot of the highest order, John dedicated his life to the service of this country both as a member of our armed forces and as a civil servant, and he earned a reputation as a shining example of integrity and bipartisanship among his colleagues.

"I had the great honor to interact with John over the years and was awestruck by the humility and grace that a man of his caliber -- having spent six years as a prisoner of war -- carried himself with until the very end.

"Elizabeth and I extend our deepest condolences to the McCain family during this difficult time. Senator McCain was many things throughout his life -- husband, father, friend, patriot, hero, servant -- and the nation celebrates his life and mourns his loss together."
