U.S. Rep. Fred Upton, R-St. Joseph, today released the following statement on the passing of Congressman Elijah Cummings:

“I’m saddened to wake to the news that a true leader and a giant of the House has passed. Elijah Cummings was fiercely protective and proud of his beloved Baltimore and served our nation with pride. He was a role model, mentor, and friend to members on both sides of the aisle whose presence in Congress will be missed. Rep. Cummings represented my wife’s family in Baltimore, so we always shared a special bond with him and deeply appreciated his service. Amey and I will keep his wife, friends, and family in our prayers during this challenging time.”
