U.S.Senator Frank Lautenberg-New Jersey- Dead At 89

Senator Frank Lautenberg of New Jersey has died at the age of 89. Lautenberg has been a fixture in the U.S. Senate for the past 3 decades. He served from 1982-2001 and then again from 2003 until his passing yesterday. Lautenberg was a democrat and one of the most liberal senate members. Something I find significant in his passing, he is the last U.S. Senator who served in World War II.
