HOT SPRINGS -- Congressman Bruce Westerman (R-Hot Springs) issued the following statement regarding the death of former Congressman John Paul Hammerschmidt on Wednesday, April 1:

“I am saddened to hear of Congressman Hammerschmidt’s passing. His long tenure in the United States Congress paved the way for those of us in office today, showing how to not only serve our constituents but also how to lead even when he was the sole Republican in the Arkansas delegation. Hammerschmidt’s conservative values continue to be a guide to those of us who have followed in his footsteps and I will be forever in his gratitude for being a long-time champion of conservative values and of Arkansas. My thoughts are with his family and many friends at this difficult time.”
