Sen. Leahy said:
I am proud to be a Vermont Senator who has been around for a very long time because I know my time in the Senate has changed a lot for Vermonters and beyond. I know I have been supporting my government at a time when I am most in need. I know I have taken our best ideas and helped them grow. I brought Vermont’s speech to the United States Senate and Vermont around the world.
So yes, I am proud to be the oldest Senator of Vermont. As I continue to serve in Vermont, Marcelle and I have come to realize that the time has come for us to put on this gavel. It’s time to dump her and move on to the next Vermonter, which will carry out this work in our mainland. It’s time to go home.
