STATEMENT BY U.S. SENATOR BENJAMIN L. CARDIN ON THE DEATH OF FORMER SENATOR CHARLES MATHIAS

Mac Mathias was dedicated to civil rights, equality and economic opportunity for all Americans and he relied on his internal moral compass -- not on party dogma -- to guide his views. He was a statesman in the best sense of the word and I valued his judgment and advice. Maryland was fortunate to have such a fine, principled public servant who was dedicated to improving our state and nation.
