Statement of Ted Turner, NTI Founder and Co-Chair, on the Passing of Former Senator Richard Lugar

Statement from Ted Turner:  

"Yesterday, we said good-bye to an incredible statesman and friend, former Senator Richard Lugar.  His dedication to bipartisanship came from a spirit of civility and decency. His commitment to preventing the spread of nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons created an extraordinary legacy that has made each of us safer and more secure. His service on the Board of Directors of the Nuclear Threat Initiative gave us the benefit of his quiet leadership since our founding. Our deepest condolences go to his family."
