JUST IN: Former GOP Senator Orrin Hatch Dead at 88

Former Utah Senator Orrin Hatch passed away on Saturday at the age of 88.

Orrin Hatch was the longest serving Republican senator in US history.

His foundation announced the death, however they did not disclose a cause.

“He exemplified a generation of lawmakers brought up on the principles of comity and compromise, and he embodied those principles better than anyone,” said Hatch Foundation chairman A. Scott Anderson in a statement. “In a nation divided, Orrin Hatch helped show us a better way by forging meaningful friendships on both sides of the aisle. Today, more than ever, we would do well to follow his example.”

Orrin Hatch retired from the US Senate in 2019 and was replaced by Mitt Romney.
