Wendell Ford, Longtime Kentucky Senator, Dies at 90

Today Kentucky lost a giant. Whether as Governor, United States Senator or just a private citizen with a servant's heart - Wendell Ford did more for Kentucky and our citizens than any person in our Commonwealth's history. He was a man of integrity and drive whose accomplishments are too numerous to list. I join every Kentuckian in mourning the loss of this incredible man and hope Sen. Ford's family is consoled by knowing that Kentucky will be eternally grateful for his life of service.

For a great recap of the many accomplishments Senator Ford made in his career, read his obituary in the Courier Journal and New York Times.
