Congressman Louie Gohmert (TX-01) released the following statement today regarding the passing of Congressman Elijah Cummings who represented the city of Baltimore and Maryland’s Seventh Congressional District for more than two decades:

"My heartfelt prayers go out to Congressman Elijah Cummings’ family and loved ones during this difficult time of deep loss. Not only was Elijah a passionate and vocal advocate of civil rights, he was a devoted public servant."

“Despite our political differences, Elijah and I worked together on gaining freedom for a soldier who was wrongfully convicted of murder.  He was an accomplished and eloquent orator who stood up for what he believed. It has been a privilege to serve with him in the United States Congress. His legacy will forever live on in the hearts of those who deeply admired him.”
