On Sunday, news outlets reported that former Georgia Republican Senator Johnny Isakson has passed away.

The Hill reports:

Former Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) died on Sunday at the age of 76, the Isakson Initiative announced.

“It is with deep sorrow that The Isakson Initiative shares that former U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson passed away overnight on December 19, 2021, at age 76. Sen. Isakson’s family is grateful for the prayers and support,” it said on the former senator’s Twitter page.

“Funeral arrangements will be shared when finalized,” it added.

Isakson was remembered as a good friend to Mitch McConnell in the Senate.

“But the amazing thing about him was that at any given time, approximately 98 other Senators felt the same way. His infectious warmth and charisma, his generosity, and his integrity made Johnny one of the most admired and beloved people in the Capitol,” McConnell said.
