GAINESVILLE, Ga.—Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) released the following statement in response to news of former U.S. Sen. and Georgia Gov. Zell Miller's passing:

“Zell Miller helped shape Georgia into one of the strongest states in the union. He was a national giant from northeast Georgia, and I looked up to him as a leader who never blinked in the face of a challenge or let politics eclipse his principles. I’ll always remember the ways in which he encouraged and supported me through many seasons. My family knew, admired and will miss Zell as a true man of the mountains. Our prayers are focused on his loved ones and the millions of Georgians whom he served.”
