Baucus on Kennedy’s Passing
Edward Kennedy
Montana Sen. Max Baucus, who worked in the Senate with Sen. Edward Kennedy for the last 30 years, sent out the following statement upon news of his passing:

"Ted Kennedy was more than a Senate icon who fought tirelessly for the causes he believed in so passionately. He was more than a voice for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. He was a loving son, brother, husband, father, uncle and grandfather and friend. Working with him for the last 30 years was one of the great honors I've had as a United States Senator.

Senator Kennedy is simply irreplaceable, and the Senate will forever miss its great Liberal Lion.

Yet, though Ted Kennedy is no longer with us, his legacy and his memory live on forever in the millions of people whose lives were made better through his work.

In the true spirit of Ted Kennedy we will continue to advance the ideals and issues that were so close to his heart and such a part of his remarkable life.

As we all mourn this great loss, his wife Vicki and his entire family will remain in our thoughts and prayers."
