WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Mike Johanns (R-Neb.) today issued the following statement on the passing of Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii):
“From his decorated military service to his impressive Congressional career, Sen. Inouye has dedicated his life to serving our country, the people of Hawaii and our nation’s veterans,” Johanns said. “He brought a quiet sensibility to issues before the Senate and will be deeply missed by his colleagues, constituents, family and anyone lucky enough to call him a friend.
“My and Stephanie’s prayers are with his wife Irene and family during this time.”
