CLEVELAND, OH — Today, U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown (D-OH) released the following statement on the passing of former Senator Richard Lugar (R-IN).   

Connie and I are saddened to hear about the passing of Senator Lugar. From his work on the Farm Bill to his longtime commitment to reducing the stockpile of nuclear weapons, he was always willing to work across the aisle to do what’s best for our country. Our hearts go out to Char and the Lugar family,” said Brown.
