John Dingell made history as the longest-serving member of Congress, yet Hillary and I will always know him as a passionate and tireless advocate for ordinary Americans—fighting for their civil rights, strengthening their healthcare, and championing their dreams of a better life. While someday a legislator may come along to serve longer than John’s nearly six decades on the Hill, his remarkable legacy of public service will remain unmatched. We’re proud to have worked alongside him, and we will always treasure his friendship. We wish John, Debbie and their entire family the very best.
