Chambliss Statement on the Passing of NBC News Washington Bureau Chief Tim Russert

U.S. Senator Saxby Chambliss, R-Georgia, made the following statement today upon learning that Tim Russert, NBC News Washington Bureau Chief and host of “Meet the Press,” passed away from a heart attack at age 58.

“There is no question we are all shocked by the news that Tim Russert passed away so suddenly. To say that Tim Russert was the best of the best is an understatement. He was a brilliant journalist, he did his homework, and you knew going into an interview with him that he’d leave no stone unturned. He was a professional in every respect. Our thoughts and prayers are with his entire family and everyone at NBC News.”
