MANKATO, MN – Today, U.S. Representative Tim Walz (MN-01) released the below statement following the passing of Senator John McCain of Arizona:

“Senator John McCain was a humble hero and an American patriot. He emanated bravery. All the days of his life, he fought for – and represented – the values we hold dear as Americans.

“From his selfless service in uniform to his time in Congress fighting for those who serve and have served, Senator McCain dedicated his life to this nation and his fellow citizens. His deep and enduring love for his country and his family fueled his public service, and it is no secret his voice will be deeply missed in the United States Congress.

“It is an honor to have been able to call Senator McCain my colleague and I am even more proud to have been able to call John my friend. Gwen and I send our deepest condolences to Cindy and Senator McCain’s entire family. We can honor his legacy by working to return decency and dignity to our politics and fighting every single day for the democracy we love.”
