“For me, it’s a sacred responsibility that I have to communicate my condolences to a family, And it’s very special to me because it goes back to my regretting that I voted to go into the Iraq war.”

“I did not do what I should have done to read and find out whether Bush was telling the truth about Saddam [Hussein] being responsible for 9/11 and having weapons of mass destruction, Because I did not do my job then, I helped kill 4,000 Americans, and I will go to my grave regretting that.”

“I wasn't going to try to make an issue out of it, but my chief of staff said, 'Just write Bob Ney, he'll just throw it in the trashcan,' Well, it didn't happen.”

“Congressman Walter B. Jones, Jr. was the true embodiment of a public servant, He will be long remembered for his tireless advocacy for Eastern North Carolina, which he loved dearly, and for always following his convictions, no matter the political cost. He always did what he felt was right for his constituents, his district, and his country, and it was no wonder why he was so widely admired and trusted. It was a true honor to serve with Walter Jones.”

“The House of Representatives has sustained a great loss, and the hearts of all Members of our Congressional community are broken, Congressman Jones was a gentleman who treated his colleagues on both sides of the aisle with kindness, decency, and compassion. He worked always in a spirit of bipartisanship to build a better future for his constituents and the American people, earning him the deep respect of all those who were fortunate enough to know and work with him. His relentless work on behalf of our men and women in uniform, veterans, military families and caregivers honored our American values and strengthened our country.”

I will miss his humility, intellect, and unwavering love of his community.”

“What Jones showed is that you can be a very conservative guy, you can be a libertarian, but you can find all kinds of ways to work with members from across the aisle, Being conservative doesn't mean you need to march in lock-step.”
