McHenry on the Passing of Senator Bob Dole

Congressman Patrick McHenry (NC-10) released the following statement on the passing of former Kansas Senator Bob Dole:

“Senator Bob Dole was a true American hero. From his bravery in the Army during World War II to his decades in Congress, Senator Dole defined what it means to faithfully serve our nation. The strength and courage he displayed after being grievously wounded on the battlefield in Italy in 1945 is simply remarkable. Few thought he could ever recover from his injuries but through sheer will he transformed himself, ultimately becoming one of the Republican Party’s most revered leaders of the 20th century. Giulia and I extend our prayers to Elizabeth, the Dole family, and the people of Kansas as they mourn.”
