WASHINGTON, D. C. - Congressman Ben Ray Luján, D-N.M., the U.S. House Assistant Speaker spoke Sept. 27 on the passing of Ambassador Joe Wilson:

“It was with profound sadness that I heard of the passing of Ambassador Wilson, a friend and fellow New Mexican for whom I had deep respect. Amb. Wilson was a devoted patriot who put country and duty before politics and who had the courage to speak the truth in the face of extreme criticism.

“Today, my thoughts and prayers are with Joe’s family and friends. He will be missed by all those who loved and respected him.”
