MARYVILLE, TENN., NOV. 1 — U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-Tenn.) today released the following statement on the passing of Fred Thompson:

“Very few people can light up the room the way Fred Thompson did. He used his magic as a lawyer, actor, Watergate counsel, and United States senator to become one of our country’s most principled and effective public servants. He was my friend for nearly fifty years. I will miss him greatly. Honey and I and our entire family send our love and sympathy to Jeri and the Thompson family.”
