Zody statement on Senator Richard Lugar

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Democratic Party Chairman John Zody issued the following statement after the passing of former US Senator Richard Lugar.

“Indiana has lost a leading diplomat, a man who steadfastly believed in the power of dialogue and bipartisanship. Richard Lugar’s achievements were grounded in a clear-eyed approach that valued facts over rhetoric. His voice was never the loudest but his word meant something. Ultimately, his resolve and integrity made the world a safer place and is proof diplomacy can break down any wall.”
