Manchin Statement on Senator Inouye’s Passing

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) issued the following statement about the death of Senator Daniel Inouye (D-HI). 

“I was so saddened to hear of the death of my colleague and friend, Dan Inouye, a lifelong friend to our beloved Robert C. Byrd. It was my privilege to know him when I was Governor and more closely in the two years we served together. You could not find a kinder, gentler or more genuine person than Dan Inouye. He was a true American hero in every sense of the word – not just in his remarkable military career, but also in his continued service to this great nation that he loved.”
