REID STATEMENT ON THE PASSING OF SENATOR GEORGE MCGOVERN

Washington, D.C. – Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) released the following statement today
on the passing of Senator George McGovern:

“My relationship with Senator George McGovern goes back decades to my time as Lieutenant Governor, when I worked to help his campaign in Nevada. Throughout his historic career, Senator McGovern was a great patriot. He flew bombing missions during World War II and worked tirelessly for social justice upon his return, advocating passionately on behalf of the most vulnerable among us. As the Democratic nominee for president, Senator McGovern put principle over politics and stood up for what he believed in. He lived his values, dedicating his life to fighting the scourge of poverty here at home and around the world.

“The forces of social justice lost a great fighter today, and Senator McGovern will be sorely missed.”
