DCCC Chairman Chris Van Hollen released the following statement on the passing of NBC News’ Washington Bureau Chief and the moderator of “Meet the Press,” Tim Russert:


“We are deeply saddened by the sudden loss of Tim Russert. America has lost one of the great models of integrity in journalism and a true political institution. We will miss his passion, humor, and unyielding commitment to seeking the truth.
