Senator Burr Statement on the Passing of Senator Edward Kennedy

Today, Senator Richard Burr (R-North Carolina) issued the following statement on the passing of Senator Edward Kennedy:

"I was deeply saddened to hear the news of Senator Ted Kennedy's passing. While we did not always see eye to eye on the issues of the day, he was a devoted and ardent champion of the causes he believed in. I enjoyed the opportunities I had to work with him on issues that we shared a passion for, particularly our ongoing efforts to strengthen our nation's public health system. Brooke and I extend our thoughts and prayers to Vicki and the Kennedy family."
