Blunt Mourns Passing of Ohio Democratic Colleague

Stephanie Tubbs Jones, the first black woman to ever represent Ohio in Congress, died Wednesday after a brain hemorrhage.
REP. ROY BLUNT issued this statement:
"Stephanie Tubbs Jones will be missed by many. Her larger-than-life personality conveyed her passion for the people she represented yet it never failed to lighten the mood of any room she was in. While we may have disagreed on the issues, those disagreements never left the House floor. My thoughts and prayers are with Stephanie's friends, family, constituents and staff during this difficult and trying time."
