The death of U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy will have an affect on those far outside his home state of Massachusetts. Wyoming’s senators expressed their feelings about the senator upon learning of his passing. Wyoming Senator John Barrasso says he will never forget the warm welcome Senator Kennedy gave him when he was first sworn in. Though they didn’t share political views, Barrasso says Kennedy was a gracious man with deeply held principles.
Senator Mike Enzi had a much longer relationship with Kennedy.
Kennedy once said that he could define bipartisanship in two words. Those words were, “Mike Enzi.”
Kennedy passed away Tuesday night at his home in Cape Cod. He had battled brain cancer for over a year.
