WASHINGTON–U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) issued the following statement today on the passing of former Governor and U.S. Senator Dale Bumpers:
“Dale Bumpers was a larger than life figure in Arkansas politics who was highly respected in Washington D.C. and here at home. His sincere dedication to the state of Arkansas was paired with exceptional oratory skills and a relentless commitment to every challenge he took on.
Senator Bumpers leaves behind a legacy of public service, civic responsibility and accomplishments that has undoubtedly made our state a better place to live.
I join with all Arkansans as we mourn his passing and keep his family and loved ones in our thoughts and prayers.”
