Senator Kennedy was a tireless agent of change on behalf of the American people. His passing marks a great loss for both the United States Senate and the Nation.

He dedicated his life in public service to ensuring fairness and opportunity for all people. I drew inspiration from Senator Kennedy throughout my career, and will miss his voice as a champion of education reform.

My wife Karen and I extend our prayers and condolences to the Kennedy family, especially with Senator Kennedy’s wife Vicki, and with Kara, Teddy Jr. and Patrick.
