WASHINGTON, DC - Democratic Whip Steny H. Hoyer (MD) issued the following statement today following the passing of David Broder, Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist for The Washington Post:  

“I am saddened by the death of esteemed journalist David Broder. For decades, David brought our country a wealth of fair and evenhanded reporting, analysis, and commentary—work that was valued for its insights on both sides of the aisle. The respect that David garnered as ‘Dean’ of the Washington press corps was well-earned. His tireless work to keep the public informed, and his contributions to American journalism, will be sorely missed.”
