Tom Coburn was a good friend and a hero for his strong stand for small government. He was fearless politically and a man of great faith. I called him over the past few months and he was in good spirits. He knew he had fought the good fight, finished the race, and kept the faith. pic.twitter.com/k6M2b99N9D— Joe Scarborough (@JoeNBC) March 28, 2020
Very, very sad to hear the passing of my dear friend Tom Coburn.— Lindsey Graham (@LindseyGrahamSC) March 28, 2020
He was truly 'Mr. Smith goes to Washington.'
Very glad his suffering is over and he is now with the Lord.
Tom was a great senator, a terrific husband and father, and a dear friend. https://t.co/JircMdFFOu
Coburn’s family announced a memorial date will be held at a later date.
Tom Coburn showed a generation of Congressmen and Senators how to fight for responsible government. His courage was contagious and so was his spirit. He showed us how to follow Jesus even while fighting in the trenches in the Swamp. pic.twitter.com/YJQX70S5Xa— Jim DeMint (@JimDeMint) March 28, 2020
