In photos: Bob Dole honored at U.S. Capitol
President Biden, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and other lawmakers on Thursday honored Sen. Bob Dole, who laid in state at the U.S. Capitol after passing away Sunday at the age of 98.
What they're saying: "He, too, was a giant of our history. That's not hyperbole," President Biden after quoting Martin Luther King Jr. and Thomas Jefferson at the congressional tribute ceremony. "Bob belongs here."
- "We didn't agree on everything but I always admired and respected him and his willingness to work with anyone," Biden said.
- "The real engine behind Bob's 98 remarkable years was his love," McConnell said. "His love for Elizabeth, and for Robin, for public service, for Kansas and for America. Today we honor the amazing life that love created."
