Scott Statement on Passing of Congressman Alcee Hastings
NEWPORT NEWS, VA – Congressman Bobby Scott (VA-03) issued the following statement on the passing of Congressman Alcee Hastings (FL-20).
“I was deeply saddened to hear news of the passing of my friend and colleague Congressman Alcee Hastings. We entered Congress the same year and he was one of Congress’ most steadfast advocates for civil and human rights, working families, and the most vulnerable in our society. He bravely battled pancreatic cancer the last year and a half but remained a powerful voice for his constituents and the state of Florida. I send my sincerest condolences to his family, friends, staff, and loved ones.”
