Senator Grassley comments on the retirement of Senator Lott

“It’s hard for me to imagine the United States Congress, and especially the Senate, without Trent Lott being a part of it. Senator Lott has been both a leader and a maverick. He knows the ins and outs and all the maneuvers of the legislative process. Nobody worked the whip process better. He’s fought for legislation that respects the principles of less government and more freedom. He’s fought hard, and won big, for his constituents. He brings tremendous energy and drive to his work, and I’ll greatly miss Trent Lott as a colleague.”
