“Senator Byrd was not only the longest serving member of the U.S. Senate, he was one of its most effective members. He represented West Virginia with passion and dignity.
“I had the pleasure of seeing Senator Byrd in action on many occasions and particularly admired his deep understanding of the Constitution and the rules and traditions of the Senate. He was respected by all his colleagues on both sides of the aisle. Senator Byrd was a valuable ally and worthy opponent. He will be viewed by history as one the giants of the Senate.”
