Manchin Statement On The Passing Of Former Senator Jim Inhofe

Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (I-WV) released the following statement on the passing of former U.S. Senator James “Jim” Inhofe.

“Gayle and I are saddened to hear of the passing of our friend, former Senator Jim Inhofe. Jim was the epitome of a public servant. As the longest-serving U.S. Senator in Oklahoma’s history, he never wavered in putting Oklahoma and her people first. Throughout his 36 years in public office, he was a fearless and dynamic leader, and it was truly a privilege to work alongside him for 12 years in the U.S. Senate and with him on the Armed Services Committee. Our hearts and prayers are with his wife, Kay, his three children, Molly, Jimmy, and Katy, and all of his loved ones as they mourn this tremendous loss."
