Pence: Lugar Was 'Leader on the World Stage'

Sunday, 28 April 2019 04:30 PM

Vice President Mike Pence says Indiana and America "will never forget the leadership and service" of former longtime Sen. Richard Lugar.

Lugar died Sunday at age 87. He was a foreign policy expert known for leading efforts to help the former Soviet states dismantle and secure much of their nuclear arsenal.

Pence issued a statement saying, "Lugar was a leader not only in the Senate but also on the world stage, where he worked tirelessly to bring pressure to end apartheid in South Africa and enforce treaties that destroyed Soviet weapons of mass destruction."

Pence says that "as the longest serving member of Congress from Indiana, and a Presidential Medal of Freedom recipient, Lugar leaves behind a legacy of public service that will inspire Hoosiers for generations."
