Arizona Democratic Party statement on the passing of Senator Ted Kennedy

From an email -

ADP Chairman Don Bivens today issued the following statement on the death of Sen. Edward Kennedy:

"We are truly saddened at the news of Senator Edward Kennedy's death. The country has lost not only a leader but a genuine statesman and public servant. He loved his country deeply, devoting his nearly 47 years in the Senate to the people of Massachusetts and people in need everywhere. He championed the plight of the overlooked, creating a body of legislative work - from the Americans with Disabilities Act to the Family and Medical Leave Act - that has touched the lives of millions. Despite today's sad news, it is comforting to know that Senator Kennedy's legacy will be felt for generations. Our thoughts are with his family and loved ones."
