Posted on March 9, 2011

WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) released the following statement on the passing today of Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist and reporter, David Broder:

“No reporter in recent times was a better reporter than David Broder. He would show up in the most unexpected places. Sometimes he was the only reporter present. He never played favorites. He would be uncomfortable with such praise by an elected official. Public service and journalism are richer for his distinguished, long career.”
