WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senator Tom Udall offered his condolences to the family of former Senator Pete Domenici, who passed away this morning. Udall succeeded Domenici in the U.S. Senate.

“Jill and I were very saddened to hear of the passing of Senator Pete Domenici this morning, and we send our deepest sympathies to his family.

“Senator Domenici is a legend in New Mexico politics, and though he will be sorely missed, his impact will be felt in the state – and the nation – for generations to come. While we sat on different sides of the political aisle, I admired Pete’s dedication to the well-being of all of New Mexico. He will be remembered for his meaningful contribution on so many issues – especially fiscal responsibility and the federal budget, energy policy and New Mexico’s national labs, free trade, and his personal and heartfelt dedication to ensuring parity in the health care system for those suffering from mental illness.

“But what I admire most about Pete is that during his over 30 years representing the state of New Mexico in the Senate, he always kept New Mexicans first. It’s partly thanks to him that the New Mexico congressional delegation continues a tradition of working together regardless of party – we need more of that in Congress today.

“Pete dedicated his life to digging into the complex public policy issues important to our state – from Native American issues to water policy to nuclear energy. Even after he retired, he kept working to make New Mexico a better place for everyone.

“On a personal note, I appreciate that Pete was always available to me as a resource. Please join Jill and me in keeping Senator Domenici and his family in your thoughts and prayers.”
