Stutzman Thanks Senator Lugar for His Service

Washington, D.C. – Following U.S. Senator Richard Lugar’s valedictory floor speech, U.S. Congressman Marlin Stutzman thanked Indiana’s distinguished Senior Senator for his thirty-six years of service.
 
“Through his many years of service, our Senior Senator has embodied the spirit of graciousness that Hoosiers, whatever our political leanings, expect.
 
“Senator Lugar’s unparalleled understanding of agriculture policy has been a tremendous asset to our State. As an unwavering leader in reducing the threat of weapons of mass destruction, his work has greatly reinforced the security of Americans at home and abroad.
 
“As one who has the honor and privilege of representing Indiana in Congress, I am grateful for his statesmanship, his knowledge, and the friendship of a fellow farmer.”
