GREEN BAY– Senator Robert Cowles (R-Green Bay) released the following statement in response to the passing of former Senator John McCain:
“Tonight, we lost a true American hero. From Senator McCain’s military service including over five years as a prisoner of war and throughout life in the public eye, I have not only admired his patriotism, but his willingness to put the interests of his constituents and all Americans before himself and before politics. Senator McCain exemplified the definition of statesmanship, and his approach to serving as an elected official is something that all elected officials should aspire to emulate.
“Senator McCain’s family, friends, and colleagues are in my thoughts and prayers this weekend.”
