Michigan’s longest serving senator, Carl Levin, dies at 87

According to the Washington Examiner, Michigan’s longest-serving member of the upper chamber, Sen. Carl Levin, passed away at his home, dying at the age of 87.Β 

Given his 36 years and six terms spent representing his constituents and his state in the U.S. Capitol, Levin was a staple in Democratic politics, having been called an “inspirational leader,” his family said in a statement regarding his passing.

“For those who were lucky enough to be a part of his early work in Detroit, his decades in the Senate, and beyond, he was an inspirational leader and so much more,” the family’s statement read, which was part of a joint statement from the Levin Center at Wayne State University’s law school.

“He will be remembered for his relentless intellect and work ethic, his humility, his humor, and his strength of character,” the family and law school center added.

Levin’s career in the upper chamber stretches back to 1978, where he served with Democratic heavy-hitters like then-Sen. Joe Biden, Sen. Tim Kennedy, and many more. He would continue his elected service until his retirement in 2015.

The Michigan senator served as the Armed Services Committee’s chairman, solidifying his legacy of working toward various national security and military-related issues.

A strong critic of former President George W. Bush, Levin was one of the few Democratic senators at the time to vote against the war in Iraq, following the events of 9/11. He would also go on to famously state that Bush had “written the book on how to mismanage a war.”

Levin’s cause of death was not immediately released by his family, as of this writing, though it was reported that he was diagnosed four years ago with lung cancer.

There will reportedly be both a private and public memorial to honor the late senator.

“…heavy hitters like Joe Biden…?” Joe Biden was never a “heavy hitter” on his best day. Joe was widely viewed as the least intelligent person in the Senate.
