Washington, D.C. – Speaker Nancy Pelosi issued this statement on the passing of former Senator Carl Levin of Michigan:

“The passing of Senator Carl Levin is a great loss for Michigan and for America.

“In his fifty years serving the people of Michigan, Senator Levin was revered in the Congress and Country for his commitment to the public good.  He was a leader committed to justice and accountability at every step, from the campus to the courtroom, the city council to the Congress.  As Chair of the Senate Armed Services Committee, he brought principle and patriotism to his work, understanding that America’s strength is found not only in our military might, but in our faithfulness to our values.  His respect for the dignity of all people embodied the best of America.

“Carl Levin’s love for his family was legendary and a joy for all to behold.  May it be a comfort to his beloved Barbara and their children Kate, Laura, and Erica, his brother Congressman Sandy Levin, his nephew Congressman Andy Levin, and all Carl’s loved ones that so many pray for and mourn with them at this sad time.”
