Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) today issued a statement on the passing of former President and Prime Minister of Israel, Shimon Peres.

“Gayle and I wish to extend our deepest sympathies to the people of Israel on the passing of President Shimon Peres. As a man of peace and vision he brought stability, prosperity and hope to a region beset with conflict and violence. He was a model statesman and truly a mentor to the world.  On behalf of all West Virginians we are sorry for your loss and will continue to work towards his vision of peace.”
