Today, Congressman Patrick McHenry (NC-10), released the following statement on the passing of House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Elijah Cummings (MD-07):

"I am saddened to hear about the passing of Chairman Elijah Cummings. I got to know Chairman Cummings during my time serving on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. While Elijah was a tough partisan with whom I rarely agreed, he was a decent and thoughtful man who always conducted himself as a gentleman. He will be missed by all. My prayers are with his family, loved ones, staff, and the people of Maryland’s 7th District as they mourn."
