Statement of Governor Rick Perry Regarding the Resignation of Senator Phil Gramm

Wednesday, November 20, 2002  •  Press Release

“In a state filled with tales of legendary statesmen, Sen. Phil Gramm stands in a league of his own. It’s hard to imagine where this state would be without the fearless, dedicated service of this man. He has been a spirited protector of the men and women of this state and the ideas they hold dear. I have been proud to call him my senator, and even prouder to call him my friend. I know without a doubt that even though Sen. Gramm is leaving his role in the U.S. Senate, he will continue to work for the greater benefit of our state and our nation.”
