Udall Statement on Edward M. Kennedy

Santa Fe, N.M. – U.S. Senator Tom Udall today released the following statement mourning the passing and praising the life of U.S. Senator Edward M. Kennedy: 

“Senator Edward Kennedy committed his life to fighting for Americans who could not fight for themselves. His tireless drive to provide access to health care, civil rights, and improve education for all will forever serve as a model for true public service. He never gave up on accomplishing these goals and upholding the values of compromise and forging common ground and bipartisan solutions to move America forward. My thoughts, and those of my wife Jill and my father Stewart, are with Vicki and the entire Kennedy Family. We will miss his spirit, patriotism and dedication to realizing a greater vision for America now, more than ever.”
