FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

June 13, 2008

WASHINGTON, D.C. – House Majority Whip James E. Clyburn today released the following statement after learning of the passing of NBC Washington Bureau Chief and host of “Meet the Press,” Tim Russert.

“I’m stunned by the sudden passing of Tim Russert.  He was a stalwart in the industry and a journalist of the people.  He will be remembered for his passion, preparation, meticulousness, tenacity and dedication to his work.  His zeal for politics was only surpassed by his love for his family.  His absence leaves a gap that will be difficult to fill.  My thoughts and prayers are with his family, friends and colleagues.”
