Washington, D.C.--U.S. Senator Mike Crapo (R-Idaho) issued the following statement on the news former Senator Bob Dole passed away on December 5, 2021, at the age of 98.
“Senator Dole was a stalwart and passionate conservative leader. As both a respected member of Congress and a veteran of the United States Army, Senator Dole embodied an unwavering commitment to public service.
