Press Release

DOVER, NH— Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter (NH-01) released the following statement tonight on the passing of Senator John McCain:

“I am deeply saddened tonight by the passing of Senator John McCain. The last time I spoke to Senator McCain, he walked over to my table at a restaurant in DC to tell me how much he loved New Hampshire, and said it was his second favorite state. I told him New Hampshire loved him back, and we certainly did. I am grateful for his life and his long service to America. His life had many chapters, but each chapter had the same themes--his love for America, his service, his leadership, and his courage. Our country has lost a true hero. He will be greatly missed.”
