Sep 13, 2017

Washington, D.C. (September 13, 2017) Congressman Steve Pearce today released the following statement on the passing of former New Mexico Senator Pete Domenici:

“It is with a heavy heart today that we say goodbye to a man that single handedly transformed the state of New Mexico. Senator Domenici was a powerful voice for all New Mexicans and went above and beyond for the people and families who call the land of enchantment home. I had the great privilege of working closely with Senator Domenici over the years, and fostered a relationship with him as a friend, mentor, and leader. He didn’t hesitate to put every single New Mexican before himself and fought tirelessly to make sure opportunities for a better life were available to all. He was a titan – a fighter – and his work for the wellness and prosperity of New Mexico will forever be remembered. There are no words that can ease the pain we share today, but together we can make sure his legacy lives on.”
