Former New Hampshire Senator Warren Rudman died Monday night at the age of 82. He was considered a centrist Republican, and a leader in the movement toward fiscal responsibility.
As Congress battle over taxes and spending, President Obama says lawmakers would do well to follow the example set by Warren Rudman nearly 30 years ago.
In a statement, the President called the two-term Senator the embodiment of Yankee sensibility.
Warren Rudman’s time in Washington was highlighted by his struggle to balance the Federal budget.
