LINCOLN, NE – U.S. Senator Deb Fischer released the following statement after learning of the passing of former Senator Bob Dole.:
“Bob Dole led a remarkable life of service to our nation. He was an American hero. After recovering from severe injuries in World War II, he transitioned to a different type of service. He represented the people of Kansas in the U.S House and then the U.S. Senate for more than 30 years and in 1996, was the Republican nominee for President of the United States.
Bruce and I send our deepest sympathies to Elizabeth and the entire Dole family and we honor Senator Bob Dole’s patriotism and service to this country.”
