The late Senator Richard Lugar, one of the powerhouses if the Republican Party gas received a glowing tribute from US Vice President Mike Pence.
Pence took to Twitter to pen these words:
On behalf of a grateful nation, @SecondLady & I offer our deepest sympathies to the Lugar family. Sen. Lugar lived…
a great American life. He raised a wonderful family, served in uniform, & was a dedicated public servant who led his city, state, & nation w/integrity for 50+ years!
Senator Lugar was one senator who was genuinely admired at both sides of the Capitol aisle. May his soul rest in peace.
