Frank R Lautenberg
The intrepid Frank R. Lautenberg was the personification of Jersey Strong today, casting votes in favor of background checks for gun owners, and bans on assault weapons and high-capacity ammunition magazines ... His presence today was a brighter part of a disappointing day of votes. I look forward to working with him as we continue the fight for common-sense gun control measures for the sake of all Americans.
There is no one in New Jersey history quite like Frank R. Lautenberg ... He is a true champion for New Jersey, an effective advocate and skillful politician, and someone who has never forgotten his roots or the valuable role that government can play in helping people.
I am not announcing the end of anything. I am announcing the beginning of a two-year mission to pass new gun safety laws, protect children from toxic chemicals and create more opportunities for working families in New Jersey ... While I may not be seeking re-election, there is plenty of work to do before the end of this term and I’m going to keep fighting as hard as ever for the people of New Jersey in the U.S. Senate.More quotes »
