Boozman Statement on Passing of Sen. Thad Cochran

Senator John Boozman (R-AR) released the following statement on the passing of Thad Cochran, former U.S. Senator for Mississippi:

“Thad Cochran was one of the most respected voices in Congress during his 45 years of service. He took me under his wing when I was elected to the Senate and his mentorship was unmatched and invaluable. I learned a great deal from him and take tremendous pride in our joint efforts to help the entire Delta region. Senator Cochran was a trusted neighbor and tremendous friend to Arkansas. I join with countless others in expressing my condolences to his loved ones and the people of Mississippi, who knew Thad Cochran to be an incredibly effective legislator and public servant. I will always remain grateful for his legacy and more importantly, his friendship and counsel.”
