Rep. Louie Gohmert (TX-01) issued the following statement on the passing of talk radio legend, Rush Limbaugh:
Today our country mourns the loss of America’s anchorman, and a true patriot, Rush Limbaugh. Americans have been blessed to have had 32 wonderful years of stellar analysis, commentary and wit from Rush, and his legacy will undoubtedly live on. He single-handedly transformed talk radio and the conservative movement in America with his talents “on loan from God,” and provided valuable information, hope, and entertainment to millions of us every single day.
My deepest sympathies and prayers are with Kathryn, his family, and all of his loved ones including his stellar staff, whom I know are crushed with this insurmountable loss. Psalm 34:18 says, “The LORD is close to the broken-hearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” May we all take comfort in knowing that Rush is now at eternal peace with his Father in Heaven. I will miss you, my dear friend.
