HENRICO, V.A. — U.S. Representative Abigail Spanberger today released the following statement on the passing of former U.S. Senator John Warner.

“Senator Warner exemplified what it meant to live a life in public service. Across his 30 years in the U.S. Senate, he was dedicated to the lives and stories of his Virginia constituents, he was firm in his principles and his devotion to the Constitution, and he sought to find common ground with his colleagues whenever possible. Throughout his life, he showed a deep commitment to America’s servicemen and women and the country they defended — a commitment demonstrated through his own military service, his time as Secretary of the Navy, and his remarkable leadership on the Senate Armed Services Committee.

“Senator Warner was a proud Virginian, and nothing made him prouder than to see Virginia lead the way and to play a part in that effort. Generations of Virginia public servants will live by his example, and I have cherished his guidance and his insights during my short time in the U.S. House of Representatives. I was honored to have known him and to have received his mentorship. My thoughts are with his wife Jeanne and his family as we remember an American life filled with character, wisdom, wit, and resolve.”
