Statements and Speeches

WILMINGTON- Today, Sen. Tom Carper (D-Del.) released the following statement after the passing of James “Jim” Brady, former White House press secretary, who was known for his efforts to prevent gun violence.

“I am saddened to learn of the passing of Jim Brady and I send my deepest condolences to his wife Sarah and the rest of the Brady family,” Sen. Carper said. “We lost a good man today. I was fortunate to get to know Jim and Sarah even before they made their home in Rehoboth for many years. I first met Jim when I was state treasurer and he was working for Senator Roth. My relationship with Jim and Sarah later grew as I worked with them on bringing about more common sense measures to prevent gun violence. Jim and Sarah made quite a team and countless American lives have been saved as a result of their efforts.”
