North Carolina Mourns Loss of Rep. Walter Jones

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Senator Richard Burr (R-NC) released the following statement regarding the passing of Congressman Walter B. Jones, Jr. (NC-03):

“Brooke and I were terribly saddened to hear about Walter’s passing. Walter and I came to Washington together in 1995. Having worked alongside him for nearly 25 years, I can tell you without hesitation that he left North Carolina, Congress, and our country better places than he found them. Walter will be remembered as a man of strong principles, willing to take an unpopular stand when necessary. He was a hard-working and faithful public servant, and he will be sorely missed. Our prayers are with his family – may he rest in peace.”
