WASHINGTON, D.C. -- U.S. Senator John Cornyn (R-TX) issued the following statement after U.S. Senator Tom Coburn (R-OK) announced he would retire from the Senate at the end of 2014.
“Over the course of the last 20 years, America has benefited from the wisdom and common sense of Tom Coburn's service in the United States Capitol. Tom has been a fearless leader against wasteful spending in Washington. With dignity and purpose, he educates our nation on the fiscal threat in which we live and works tirelessly to correct it. For this and many more reasons, I will be eternally grateful for his service.
“As a testament to his strength and character, Tom will serve through 2014. Sandy and I look forward to another year with Tom and Carolyn and wish them peace in 2015 with their children and grandchildren.”
