San Francisco - Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi released the following statement today thanking Congressman Russ Carnahan for his service in the United States Congress:
“Congressman Russ Carnahan has served the people of St. Louis and Missouri with dignity, dedication, and a clear commitment to creating jobs, helping small businesses, investing in innovation, and strengthening our national security.

As a leader on foreign affairs, he promoted a vision of American leadership founded in active engagement on the global stage. As a powerful voice for the members of our Armed Forces, he acted to ensure that we serve our veterans as well as they have served us.
“Russ Carnahan hails from a long tradition of public service, and he has upheld the best values of his family and his state in Congress: hard work, fairness, and equality for all. It has been an honor to work with him. We thank him for his service and wish him and his family well in their future endeavors.”
