[WASHINGTON, D.C.] – Rep. Ben Ray Luján (D-NM) released the following statement on the passing of U.S. Senator John McCain:

“My deepest condolences go out to the entire McCain family during this incredibly difficult time. Our entire nation grieves with them.

“Tonight, America lost one of its greatest statesmen. Senator John McCain served the United States with honor for over six decades. He was a war hero, a patriot, and a tireless public servant. Through unimaginable trials, Senator McCain never failed to put his country first. He led and served with grace, determination, and courage.
