Al Gore Statement on the Passing of John Lewis

I am deeply saddened by the death of my friend and former colleague, John Lewis, one of the greatest moral leaders in the history of the United States. Often called the conscience of the U.S. Congress; John Lewis was, for those who listened to his words, the conscience of America. He truly spoke truth to power and worked bravely and tirelessly for justice. Our nation has suffered a great loss with his passing. I will miss him deeply.
