McConnell Statement on Bobbi Barrasso

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) issued the following statement today regarding the passing of Bobbi Barrasso:

“Elaine and I are heartbroken to learn of the passing of Bobbi Barrasso.

“Our friend and colleague John wore his love for Bobbi on his sleeve. And he was blessed to go through life with someone whose commitment to serving the people of Wyoming rivaled his own. Bobbi’s home state is better for her decades of devoted advocacy for a host of worthy causes. In addition to her tireless work on breast cancer treatment and awareness, Bobbi inspired action in Wyoming and Washington on issues ranging from suicide prevention to historical preservation and support for survivors of child abuse.

“Today, the Senate holds Bobbi’s beloved husband John, her daughter Hadley, and the entire Barrasso and Brown families in our prayers.”
