(Columbia, SC) – Sixth District Congressman and House Majority Whip James E. Clyburn today released the following statement regarding the passing of former South Carolina State Treasurer Grady Patterson: 

“I am deeply saddened by the passing of my good friend, Grady Patterson.  He was a war hero, a statesman, and always a Southern gentleman.  You could always count on Grady to be true to his word and to do what he thought was right for the people of South Carolina.  The leadership he demonstrated and the great example he set will be sorely missed.  My thoughts and prayers are with Marjorie and the entire Patterson family.”
