Biden Releases Statement On Passing of Former Michigan Senator Carl Levin

President Joe Biden released a statement on Friday commemorating former Michigan Senator Carl Levin.

“For thirty years, Carl Levin and I served together in the United States Senate,” said President Biden. “He was one of the most honorable and decent people I have ever known.”

Levin was the longest serving Senator in Michigan history.

“As chairman and ranking member of the Armed Services Committee during my time leading the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, I saw how he built consensus to protect our national security, uphold our values, and honor the service of every patriot in uniform. He led on critical issues ranging from the nonproliferation of nuclear weapons, ending the use of torture, and recognizing the dignity of every American and allowing them to serve regardless of who they are and who they love,” Biden added.

Biden also expressed his condolences to Levin’s wife Barbara, their children, and grandchildren.
