The death of Senator Paul Wellstone of Minnesota in a plane crash in northeastern Minnesota has prompted quick reaction from Missourians who have worked with Wellstone on Capitol Hill. Senator Carnahan, whose husband – the late Governor Mel Carnahan – died in a plane crash, says Wellstone was a friend of working families. Senator Bond says he’s lost someone he enjoyed being with when the two weren’t battling it out over political issues on the floor of the Senate. Republican Senate Candidate Jim Talent, a former Congressman, says his thoughts and prayers are with Wellstone’s loved ones during this difficult time.
