WASHINGTON – U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-Md.), who served as a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee from 2007- 2011, released the following statement.
“Senator Feinstein’s work on the Judiciary Committee and her legacy in the Senate are legendary. I look forward to her full recovery and return to the Senate.

I served on the Judiciary Committee when I first came to the Senate, and I am prepared to rejoin the committee in a temporary capacity for Senator Feinstein.”
