Tester Statement on the Life of Conrad Burns

(U.S. Senate) – Senator Jon Tester tonight issued the following statement on the life of former United States Senator Conrad Burns:

“The very first time I met Conrad was at the Montana Agri-Trade Exposition in Billings. I had listened to his broadcasts on the radio for years, but I’ll never forget hearing that powerful voice from across the room. Sharla and I send our thoughts to the entire Burns family and people of Montana as we remember the life of a man who loved this state. Conrad’s service to our nation as a Marine, County Commissioner, and United States Senator will be forever remembered in history.”
