Tester statement on the passing of Senator Edward Kennedy

(BUTTE, Mont.) – U.S. Senator Jon Tester today released the following statement:

“Like Mike Mansfield, Senator Kennedy was a master statesman who helped shape America by championing what he believed in, inspiring generations of Americans and working across the aisle to get it done.  It was a great honor to have known and served with Ted.  He never stopped fighting for the causes he believed in.  All of America shares our loss.”
