WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) released the following statement on the passing of former U.S. Senator Tom Coburn (Okla.):
“Tom Coburn was a good man and principled legislator. Throughout our time together in both the House and the Senate, he was a skilled procedural tactician who fought to improve government in every way. He was a dedicated investigator who exposed fraud and government inefficiency and never backed down from what he believed in, yet he often worked across the aisle with members of both parties. Abby and I send our condolences to his wife, Carolyn, and their children."
