WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) today released this statement on the passing of U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-California).
“Dianne was a trailblazer. She was the first female mayor of San Francisco and then became one of the most consequential senators in history. She was passionate about her causes, and respectful and kind toward her colleagues and constituents. Dianne was a person who knew how to get things done.
“On a personal level, she was a friend. She always had something good to say to start the day. I enjoyed working with Dianne on tough issues as she understood the give and take nature of politics and negotiation.
“I would recommend any young person who is interested in a political life to study the life and career of Senator Dianne Feinstein as a role model.
“Rest in Peace.”
