U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo., spoke on the Senate floor today to honor the legacy of the late U.S. Senator Richard Lugar, R-Ind., who served in the Senate from 1977 to 2013.

“My colleagues and I in the Senate were deeply saddened to hear of the passing of our dear colleague and friend,” Enzi said. “Senator Lugar’s work changed the course of history and worked toward a safer world for the generations that followed. The United States is a better place because of Senator Lugar’s tireless service and commitment to what is right. My wife Diana and I send our deepest condolences to his loved ones and know he will find eternal peace and happiness knowing he had a profound effect on all that knew him as a colleague, father and friend.”
