Hoeven Statement on Passing of Former Senator Mark Andrews

BISMARCK, N.D. - Senator John Hoeven released the following statement on the passing of former Senator Mark Andrews, who represented North Dakota in the United States Senate from 1981-1987 and in the U.S. House of Representatives from 1963-1981.

“Senator Mark Andrews was a strong leader and dedicated public servant, who served the people of North Dakota in Congress for decades. He was a tireless advocate for our men and women in uniform and understood the importance of a strong national defense, having served in Congress during the Cold War.  As a farmer himself, he will be remembered for his hard work on behalf of agriculture and his work to support our state’s farmers and ranchers. I am grateful for his service to our state and nation. He was a good friend and will be missed. Mikey and I extend our deepest condolences to his family and loved ones.”
