Senator Connie Mack wrote;

I am deeply saddened by the death of Slade Gorton. He was a dear friend. We served together in the US Senate during the 1990s. He provided wise counsel to the Republican leadership and was trusted on both sides of the isle.

Stars and Stripes wrote;

Slade Gorton’s 40-year political career began when he won a legislative seat within two years of arriving in Seattle as a freshly minted lawyer. He went on to serve as state attorney general, a three-term U.S. senator and member of the 9/11 Commission.

Senator Pat Roberts wrote;

Yesterday, the state of Washington lost one of its greatest advocates. Slade Gorton was more than a valued friend, he was a mentor to me during my early days in the Senate. Slade was always there to provide me with his advice and counsel, no matter the impasse I was facing. He knew how to get things done for his state, and even after his time in office he never stopped working for the people of Washington. He will be deeply missed.

PSA mourns the loss of our Advisory Board Member and Former Senator Slade Gorton who passed away at 92. He was a prominent figure in Washington state politics and a champion for #bipartisanship. He will be missed dearly by many.
