MANCHESTER, NH - U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte (R-NH) released the following statement regarding the death of former Senator Warren Rudman (R-NH):
"Warren Rudman was a national leader who made New Hampshire proud. He was tenacious about reducing our debt and he worked tirelessly to support our men and women in uniform. Warren was a fighter who had the courage of his convictions, and he always stood up for what he believed was right regardless of the consequences.
"Before his time in the Senate, he was an extraordinary attorney general for our state who modernized the office and made it what it is today. A combat veteran, he showed bravery and courage as a platoon leader during his service in Korea.
