WASHINGTON, D.C. – In response to the death of Sen. John McCain at age 81, the following statement can be attributed to NAB President and CEO Gordon Smith:
“Sen. McCain was a force of nature, whether defending his country in war or fighting for democratic values at home and abroad. I count myself lucky to have served in the U.S. Senate with this war hero, political icon, and American patriot. The history books will be kind to John McCain because our country is so much better for his straight talk, common sense, maverick ways and passionate service. Rest well, my friend.”
