“Tom Carper has been a conscientious, hardworking, honorable, and effective Senator who has done so much for his beloved Delaware and America, particularly in protecting our precious environment and strengthening our transportation systems. So many important pieces of legislation from postal reform to reducing the poisonous effect of methane in our atmosphere would not have happened without Tom’s diligence and persistence. He has had a long and distinguished career representing the ‘First State’ as a Congressman, Governor, and Senator and deserves a well-earned retirement. I know everyone in the Senate will certainly miss Tom, especially myself. To Tom and his entire family, thank you for everything you have done for our country.”
