Udall Offers Praise To Family Friend and Liberal Stalwart Sen. Kennedy

Via PolitickerCO's Jeremy Pelzer:
“My prayers go out to Senator Kennedy and his family. He has devoted his public life to championing the hopes and needs of America’s working families. His many accomplishments are well known, but I am particularly affected by this news because his family and mine have enjoyed a warm relationship throughout the years.

“Senator Kennedy is a natural leader who has always reached across the aisle to bring Democrats and Republicans together to do what is best for our country. To echo what many have said today: Edward Kennedy is one of the most effective Senators to ever serve in Congress. I am confident he will be back at his post soon and I look forward to working with him again as a friend and colleague.”
Sen. Ted Kennedy is a formidable political opponent, but the thoughts and prayers of everyone at SvU go to the Senator and his family.
