The following is a statement from Michigan Republican Party Chairman Ron Weiser on the passing of Senator John McCain.
“Senator John McCain was an American Hero and a dear friend. In 2007-08, I had the tremendous pleasure of serving as National Co-Chair on Senator McCain’s Presidential Champaign and I shall cherish the time we spent together. John McCain’s commitment to our nation and lifetime of public service can be summed up by one simple word: duty. He dedicated his life to protecting our nation both in the United States Navy and in the Senate, and our nation can never repay the sacrifices he made for us. On behalf of myself, my wife Eileen, and Republicans across Michigan, I would like to send my deepest condolences to Cindy and the rest of the McCain family.
