McConnell on the Passing of Beau Biden
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell made the following remarks on the Senate floor regarding the passing of the Vice President’s son, Beau Biden:
“I'd like to begin by expressing sincere condolences to the entire Biden family in their moment of such deep and profound loss. Beau Biden was known to many as a dedicated public servant, a loving father of two, and a devoted partner to the woman he loved: Hallie. I've known the Vice President for many years, and it’s hard to think of anything more important to him than his faith and his family. I hope he will find comfort in the former as he grieves such a terrible loss.
“The Senate offers its presiding officer and every member of his family our prayers and our sympathy.”
