Statement on the passing of John Dingell

Statement of Secretary James A. Baker, III, honorary chair of the Baker Institute, on the passing of John Dingell:

"America was built on the shoulders of great leaders like John Dingell who dedicated their lives to serving our nation. No one fought harder for their constituents or causes than the Big Truck, as John was known. But although he was a partisan Democrat and I am a partisan Republican, the two of us shared a genuine friendship based on our mutual love of country, politics and hunting. Susan joins me in sending our deepest sympathy to Debbie Dingell and the entire Dingell family.”
