WASHINGTON, D.C. –U.S. Sen. John Kennedy (R-La.) issued the following statement today on the death of U.S. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.):

“I think it was Abraham Lincoln who said every man is born an original, but, sadly, most men die copies.  John McCain was born an original and died an original.  He was frank.  He was passionate.  He was tough as a boot.  He loved his family, his country and the U.S. Senate.  I will never forget his many kindnesses to me when I first joined the Senate.  America has lost a favorite son.”
