Lawmakers Commemorate George McGovern

October 22, 2012
Lawmakers remembered 1972 Democratic presidential nominee George McGovern, who died on Sunday. Here's a look at what they said. 

House Rules Committee Chairman David Dreier: "Our friendship first began when we were seatmates on the plane to President Nixon's funeral in 1994.  I was struck with what a gentleman he was.  Over the years we continued our discussions up to our last meeting just a few months ago when we recounted our shared goal of keeping the capital gains tax rate low to encourage economic growth."

House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer: "Senator George McGovern never stopped fighting for the causes of peace, freedom, and human dignity at home and around the world."

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid: "Throughout his historic career, Senator McGovern was a great patriot. He flew bombing missions during World War II and worked tirelessly for social justice upon his return, advocating passionately on behalf of the most vulnerable among us."
