Shaheen Statement on President Jimmy Carter

U.S. Senator Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) released the following statement after the announcement by President Carter today that he will soon undergo treatment for cancer:

“I got my start in politics during President Carter’s New Hampshire primary campaign in 1975, and I can still vividly remember the excitement of listening to then Governor Carter discuss his vision for the country. Since then, Billy and I have been proud to call him a friend and continue to be inspired by his compassion for people. Today, I was very sorry to hear of his diagnosis but I know he’ll fight this battle with his signature grace, courage and determination. My thoughts and prayers are with President Carter and his family.”
