Washington, D.C. — Today, U.S. Senator Reverend Raphael Warnock (D-GA) issued the statement below on the passing of former United States Senator for Georgia, Johnny Isakson.

“I join Georgians today in grieving the loss of a great public servant, Senator Jonny Isakson. Senator Isakson represented the best of our state and our country. He was known for putting Georgia first, and for working across the aisle to get things done.

“I enjoyed spending time with Senator Isakson, especially every year when he would join Ebenezer Baptist Church for our annual celebration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. And I will always cherish the words of advice and encouragement he gave me after I was elected to be one of Georgia’s next United States Senators.

“His model of public service is an example to future generations of leaders on how to stand on principle and make progress while also governing with compassion and a heart for compromise. It is an honor to serve in the seat he once held. He was an upstanding elected official, and an even better man. I will miss him, and I am praying for his family as we all mourn his loss and celebrate his life.”
