Retired U.S. Sen. Carl Levin of Michigan released the following statement on the passing of Sen. John McCain

"Senator John McCain was the bravest person I ever met. He was tested in war in unimaginable circumstances and was fearless in public life. He spoke his mind in the face of powerful forces. I saw firsthand as, together, we led two Senate Committees, the boundless passion he had for our country matched only by his staunch adherence to an honor code that guided his entire life. He was a loyal friend whom I loved dearly, and his life will be an inspiration for young people to serve our nation for generations to come."
