WASHINGTON, June 26, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following is a statement by former Senator Pete V. Domenici, a Bipartisan Policy Center Senior Fellow, on the passing of former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Howard Baker.

"Howard Baker was a great senator, a great American and a great friend. His passing represents the passing of a leader who was devoted to finding legislative solutions to serious problems afflicting this country.
