Congress: RIP, Sen. Inouye

The Honolulu Star Advertiser: “Hawaii mourns 'An American hero'.”

Here’s its cover, which is entirely about Inouye. Subhead: “The venerable senator ‘changed our islands forever.’”

“Democrat Daniel Inouye, the U.S. Senate's most senior member and a Medal of Honor recipient for his bravery during World War II, has died. He was 88,” USA Today writes.

Here’s Nightly News on Inouye.

Political Wire: “The Washington Post notes that less than two hours after Sen. Daniel Inouye died, the Senate passed a resolution naming Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-VT) as the new president pro tempore.” And: “Sen. Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) will be the only -- and likely the final -- veteran of World War II serving in the Senate next year."
