Blunt Statement on the Passing of Sheldon Adelson

January 12, 2021

WASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Roy Blunt (Mo.) released the following statement on the passing of Sheldon Adelson:  

“Sheldon Adelson was a force of nature. He had big ideas about what could happen and then made it happen. His impact on the gaming industry in the United States and around the world put his company at the forefront of innovation. His love for the United States and for Israel was a transparent part of who he was. Sheldon, his wife Miriam, and his lifelong friends Teddy Cutler and Irwin Chafetz were the driving force to make it possible for new Republican Members of Congress to travel to Israel. I led that trip for several years, at least 100 members traveled in Israel with Sheldon. Along with all of them, Abby and I are thinking about him today.”
