Bush 41: “Ted Stevens loved the Senate; he loved Alaska; and he loved his family — and he will be dearly missed.”
Lisa Murkowski: “Alaska lost a hero and I lost a dear friend.”
Palin: “This decorated World War II pilot was a warrior and a true champion of Alaska.”
McConnell: “His commitment to the people of Alaska and his nation spanned decades, and he left a lasting mark on both.”
Inouye: “I have lost my brother.”
