I am deeply saddened to learn of the passing of my good friend Beau Biden. He gave so much to Delaware and our nation, and he had so much more to give. He has left us way too early. Beau was one of my closest friends among the states' Attorneys General, and he traveled to Kentucky several times - most recently in 2013 to keynote the Wendell Ford Dinner.  He was so passionate about using our offices to take on entrenched special interests that harmed ordinary citizens, whether in Delaware, Kentucky or elsewhere.  He was a tireless advocate for veterans, and I am thankful for his service to our country.

Beau was a father, family man, soldier, veteran, public servant, advocate - and someone with an abiding sense of what was just and right. I will miss him, and remember those for whom he fought. Elizabeth and I send our condolences to his wife, Hallie, his children Natalie and Hunter, and to the entire Biden family.
