U.S. Senator Thom Tillis released the following statement on the passing of former U.S. Senator Bob Dole:

“America has sadly lost one of our greatest heroes. From nearly losing his own life fighting against fascists in World War II to dedicating his civilian life to producing results for the American people in the halls of Congress, Bob Dole personified what it meant to be a selfless servant leader. 
“In the Senate, he used his leadership positions to break gridlock and find common ground for a better America. Over the years, his friends, colleagues, and many Americans had the opportunity to see his big heart and appreciate his legendary sense of humor. 


“Even after retiring, Bob Dole didn’t stop serving. He partnered with his loving wife Elizabeth to remain a tireless champion for our veterans, and he remained a statesman and rare voice of reason and civility in an age of partisan politics that desperately needed them. 

“Susan and are praying for our dear friend and former Senator Elizabeth Dole and the entire Dole family. America will be forever grateful for Senator Bob Dole’s exceptional lifetime of service to the nation he loved.”
