Washington, D.C. - U.S. Senator Bob Casey (D-PA) released a statement following the passing of President George Herbert Walker Bush:
"Today, our nation mourns the loss of President George H.W. Bush and reflects on his lifetime of service. From his time in uniform to his days in Congress and ultimately in the White House, President Bush served our country honorably and with distinction for over 40 years. As President, he promoted democracy in the former Soviet Union and worked to expand the rights of individuals with disabilities. My prayers are with him and the Bush family at this time."
