WASHINGTON - Congressman Rob Wittman (R-VA01) today issued the following statement on the passing of Rep. John Lewis (D-GA05):

“I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of my friend and colleague, Congressman John Lewis. John was a towering leader, both throughout his career in Washington and in his life as a Civil Rights leader. John served the people of Georgia in many ways, putting their best interests first in all he did in Congress. While our political leanings were opposed, we were united in our desire to serve all Americans. I will miss seeing John on the Floor and in the halls, and I send my deepest sympathies to the Lewis family. You remain in my prayers.”

Congressman Rob Wittman represents the 1st District of Virginia. He serves on the House Natural Resources Committee and the House Armed Services Committee, where he serves as the ranking member of the Seapower and Projection Forces Subcommittee.
