U.S. Senator Bob Corker Releases Statement about Passing of Howard Baker, Jr.
“When I think of the ultimate statesman, the very first person who comes to my mind is Howard Baker.
“Howard Baker was one of those people who had the unique ability to bring out the very best in those around him. He always put our country’s interests first, and lived a life of service that everyone in public office should aspire to emulate. I have cherished the privilege of being able to sit down and talk with Howard on many occasions, and I will always value his words of encouragement.
“Elizabeth and I extend our thoughts and prayers to his wife, Nancy, the Baker family and all those who have been touched by Howard’s remarkable life.”
