Mar 16, 2018

WASHINGTON—Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) released the following statement upon hearing about the loss of Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.):

“Congresswoman Louise Slaughter was loved by the God who made her and respected by her colleagues. We worked on different sides of the aisle, but kindness and dignity characterized every piece of our friendship. I will miss serving with her on the Rules Committee and enjoying her homemade rhubarb pie. Louise’s loved ones and the good people of New York’s 25th District have been in my prayers this morning and will remain there as they grieve this keen loss."
