WASHINGTON, D.C. - Congressman André Carson (D-IN) released today the following statement after the news of the passing of Rep. Donald Payne (D-NJ):
I am deeply saddened to learn of Congressman Payne’s passing. Rep. Payne possessed an unwavering commitment and dedication to all those he served, devoting his entire professional life to the pursuit of justice and equality for his neighbors near and far.
The impact he has made on New Jersey, on this country, and on the global community is beyond measure. From his time as a public school teacher in Newark to his impassioned advocacy on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives, he has been a trailblazer and icon.
Donald was a dear friend and mentor, and I will miss him greatly.
